A Microgrid is a devised grouping of loads, generation sources and energy storage interfaced through fast response power electronics to form a small scale power network. The paper discusses the complexities that could be faced by the existing Saudi Arabian Grid when Distributed Generation Resources are introduced to it. Considering a case of small microgrid and simulating a network similar to T and D structure of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA), comparative analysis of two different buses (AC and DC) for the microgrid is presented.
