Report on Distributed Generation Penetration Study

Benjamin Kroposki, Ben Kroposki (NREL Technical Monitor)

Research output: NRELSubcontract Report


This report documents part of a multiyear research program dedicated to the development of requirements to support the definition, design, and demonstration of a distributed generation-electric power system interconnection interface concept. The report focuses on the dynamic behavior of power systems when a significant portion of the total energy resource is distributed generation. It alsofocuses on the near-term reality that the majority of new DG relies on rotating synchronous generators for energy conversion.
