Abstract

This paper will demonstrate how embedded generators connected within distribution networks can be used to provide system load relief and contribute to the overall spinning reserve requirement of a power system. By using embedded generation to control local network voltage levels, during a contingency, it will be demonstrated how and why load relief occurs. The relative merits of using embedded generation for such a scheme will be discussed.
