Distributed generation is an electric power source connected directly to the distribution network or on the customer side of the meter” . Distributed power generation is the future trend due to its ability to accommodate variety of renewable/alternative energy sources, its potential to improve the energy efficiency and power system capability, and its promise for power reliability and security. The smart power grid distributed energy system would provide the platform for the use of renewable sources and adequate emergency power for major metropolitan load centers and would safeguard in preventing the complete blackout of environmental calamity and would provide the ability to break up the interconnected power systems into the cluster smaller regions. This paper describes the integration issues of renewable energy in electric power systems. And the benefits of using PE interface for such applications.
