Abstract

This paper focuses on renewable energy generated generation (DG) systems that will satisfy the operational requirement in different cases. The global need for a sustainable energy system is becoming very important over the next few years due to the recent attention on conventional energy resources such as fossil fuels which have effects on the environment. The renewable energy technologies such as solar energy systems are becoming more critical energy technology of the generation system. However, selecting optimal sites for DG systems depends on the local conditions and potential of renewable energy. In this work, a semi-desert area network of Libyan electrical distribution systems has been chosen as a case study. The objectives of this work are to observe the effects of DG systems in an electrical distribution system and also to present its different performance levels. Furthermore, this paper presents the implementation of a Newton Raphson method using NEPLAN software to analyze the transition and the use of sub-transmission networks, interconnecting the DG units for a semi-desert area in Libya. The simulation results are analyzed and discussed to make a suggestion for adapting this method in using the sub-transmission networks to interconnect the DG systems.
