What are the challenges of distributed generation (DG)? In an overview in Electric Light & Power (linked below), Enspiria Solutions' Kevin Cornish explains that key challenges associated with distributed generation include safety, islanding, power quality and asset management.
He cites DMS as one solution for grids with a high penetration of DG. For one, a DMS has alarm processing and load management to better manage fluctuating generation. For another, it can optimize a heterogeneous mix of wind, solar, biomass, diesel and so on.
