With the concept of Smart Grid, there are high possibilities that the interconnection of distributed generation issues can be solved and minimised. This thesis discusses the impacts of distributed generation on Smart Grid technology, in particular it identifies and determines whether the system remains stable or not after installing distributed generation into Smart Grid systems. This was done by examining the primary stability parameters of the system such as power angle, frequency and voltage. The simulation result shows that the SVC makes the grid become smarter. This is achieved because SVC has the ability to improve the system stability through voltage enhancement, either by injecting or absorbing reactive power during integration of distributed generation. The result was validated by simulations for specified scenarios in DIG-SILENT Power Factory Software V13.2.
