Distributed generation systems
Power electronics continues to penetrate into more power applications and plays a main part in energy transformation and consuming. It is anticipated in power industry that power electronics will become more involved in energy generation and distribution. The high efficiency and compactness of power converters are the main momentum behind power electronic technologies. It is therefore considered an enabling technology. The earth, wind, sun and plants are the main resources for all renewable energy technologies which provide environmental friendly, numerous, clean energy. In our modern life, energy has a vital role in future economic growth and well-being. While handling climate change problem and guaranteeing the energy supply security, numerous challenges should be taken into account. As part of addressing such challenges is to study to what extent distributed generation (DG) could supplement, or in the longer term potentially provide an alternative to, a centralised system. There are different incentives and barriers that impact on distributed electricity generation that should be taken into account.
