A growing number of small renewable generators are impacting distribution grid operation: protection, fault location and service restoration and voltage control. The individual impact of these renewables by themselves is benign, however, when their impact compounds on each other at different network locations, operational issues arise. In this article, we present the changes required for full integration of renewables in the distribution grid without curtailing generation.
