ABSTRACT
Presently, electricity is being generated at remotely located centralized generating stations. The generated power is transmitted to the dispersed consumers through the transmission and distribution networks at specified voltage and frequency. The transmission networks are designed smartly and operate in intelligent manner. However, the distribution networks are designed only for unidirectional flow of power. There is an urgent need to generate power from the available renewable energy sources at or near to the consumers end. The main issue arises when distributed generators are incorporated with the nearby available distribution networks. This paper proposes the advanced power system configuration which allows the integration of conventional energy generation and renewable energy sources efficiently. The proposed power system configuration has been simulated using MATLAB/ simulink.
