Integrating of Distributed generation (DG) into power system is one of the emerging technological innovations in power sector that brings several benefits besides supporting power supply to the feeder. DG operates in parallel with distribution network meets base load, provides peak load, power quality improvement and generation backup stand-by supply. However, the connection of DG with the complexity of power system raises various issues. The inclusion of DG in distribution system changes the operating characteristics such as power losses, voltage profile, stability and reliability of distribution system. Moreover, the impact of DG in power system depends on various technical features, such as technology, size of the units, operation and control strategies and location in the power network. This paper listed few challenges related to integration of DG in distribution system.
