Abstract

Concerns on environmental and economical issues drive the increasing developments that support small scale generators to be connected close to distribution networks, i.e. distributed generation (DG). When connected in small amounts, the impact of DG on the power system transient stability will be negligible, however, when the penetration of DG increases, its impact is no longer restricted to the distribution network but starts to influence the whole system, including the transmission system transient stability. In this paper, the transmission system transient stability is investigated when a fault is applied in all possible branches (regarding the N-1 security analysis). In this studie the penetration level of DG implementation is raised in two ways: (1) a load increase is covered by DG implementation (with a constant centralized generation) or increased CG output, and (2) a reduction of centralized generation is covered by DG (with a constant load).
