Abstract :

ABSTRACT: Small scale energy generation is the need of today’s energy scenario. Renewable energy based Distributed Generation (DG) provides the best option. Interconnection of DG to grid through power electronic converter enables fast and smooth control of power flow, synchronous generator maintains voltage profile whereas induction generator provides better integration in varying power output conditions. In addition to reliable, clean and efficient power, DG introduces problems like poor power quality, interference with protection scheme and instability in power system. This paper compares and discusses interfacing techniques, their suitability with type of DG and power quality issues for different sources.
