Investigation of Power System Performance with integration of Inverter based Generation

The electric power industry is undergoing considerable changes with respect to structure, operation, regulation and modernization. One of the significant changes is the increased utilization of distribured energy sources (DES) such as wind and solar and other immerging technologies particularly in electric distribution systems. It is envisioned that DES will bcome the main source of energy in the industry in the future due to the environmental friendliness, improving capabilities and lowering cost of these resources. Transition from traditional centralized power to DES would definitely create new challenges in planning of power systems and requires new assessment techniques and methodologies. It is, therefore, both necessary and important to develop a consistent and useful approach for the evaluation and examination of the performance of power systems containing distributed energy sources, energy store, and other new technologies.
