Distributed generation, stability, hybrid power system, microgrid.


This paper reports on the review of the emerging distributed generation (DG) and its impact on the stability of power system. It discusses various aspects of DG such as technologies, benefits, challenges, environmental impact and impact on overall power system stability. It also reports on hybrid power system as a viable means of maximizing the use of some primary energy sources that are non-dispatchable but abundant. Moreover, the current issues of DG in relation to system stability are also presented.
