Abstract

Climate change concerns due to the rising amounts of carbon gas in the atmosphere have in the last decade or so initiated a fast pace of technological advances in the renewable energy industry. Such developments in technology and the move towards cleaner sources of energy have made renewable resources based Distributed Generators (DGs) more desirable. However, it is a known fact that rising penetrations of DGs have adverse impacts on the grid structure and its operation. The smart grid concept has been used as a good solution to control the impact of DGs and make conventional grids more suitable for large scale deployments of DGs.
