Apart from the positive technical consequences like reducing losses, the increasing penetration of distributed generation (DG) units connected to the distribution network, has lead to the increase of the short-circuit (sc) currents and the fault level. Therefore it is important to know the contribution of each unit. This paper presents the available(More)
In the near future a significant amount of the consumed electrical energy will be generated by distributed generation (DG). Because of the small size these units are normally connected to the local distribution grid [1]. Connection of DG changes the operation of the distribution grid. In order to minimize the effect of DG during grid disturbances some(More)
Due to the increase of distributed generation (DG) in the future it can become important to keep DG connected to the grid in order to maintain the balance between consumed and generated electrical power. Keeping DG-units connected to the grid during a disturbance, the dynamic behavior of the DG-units becomes important. Protection schemes based on definite(More)
Nowadays the amount of distributed generation (DG) units is increasing rapidly. Most dominant are combined heat and power (CHP) plants and wind turbines. At this moment, in most systems, there are no requirements defined for short-circuit behavior of such generators connected to the medium voltage grid. However in the future this situation will not be(More)

Due to the liberalized energy market distributed generation, DG, is increasing. At this moment, most of the power produced by DG, is generated by CHP-plants and variable speed wind turbines. Integration of wind turbines have impact on several aspects of power systems such as power system stability, protection and power quality. This paper focusses on the(More)
Due to economical and political trends, in the Netherlands the electricity produced by distributed generation units has increased significantly. From 2004 on in the Stedin area, three large greenhouse areas have been developed. In each greenhouse a CHP-plant is installed and as a DSO Stedin saw the number of new CHP-plant connections in its MV grid(More)
