Abstract

"Distributed generation (DG) is becoming an increasingly attractive power generation paradigm in the field of power engineering as economic and environmental factors drive new technologies to be more efficient and less polluting than their earlier counterparts. Although the concept of DG is not new, little research has been done on the topic and even fewer field tests have been performed. This lack of research, along with other factors, has somewhat slowed the acceptance of DG into markets, other than industrial or commercial co-generation for heat and power. This thesis attempts to examine and compare three types of DG: diesel generators, microturbines, and small wind turbines within the structure of a distribution system"--Abstract, page iii.
