Abstract

The impact of distributed generation (DG) on distribution system operation depends on numerous factors including DG size, type of equipment controls, feeder and load characteristics. This paper summarizes some simple and general rules for electrical distribution engineers, operations, and maintenance crew, when evaluating the interaction of a DG with distribution feeders. These rules include the DG impact on feeder power flow, power loss, voltage regulation, and fault currents.
