Description

Utility planners and operators who are responsible for keeping the lights on for all customers have limited experience utilizing customer owned generating equipment or demand response for meeting the needs of the electric grid. As the majority of existing DG has been installed for electricity supply purposes, very few generators are equipped with the infrastructure necessary to provide ancillary services. Such infrastructure includes governors, automatic voltage regulators, resynchronisation facilities, and appropriate protection, monitoring and communication facilities.
