The emergence of Distributed Generation (DG) in distribution network has changed the configuration of this century’s power system in terms of power flow. The reason for this is that DG affects the power flow and voltage conditions in the distribution system; contrary to its traditional unidirectional nature in radial configuration. It is worth mentioning that the change in the direction of power flow is not limited to the distribution network, but can as well extend to the transmission or sub-transmission systems, especially when DG penetration is high. This paper gives an overview of DG types and modeling techniques of the DG for power flow analysis during planning and operations. Various DG technologies are highlighted, different models of DGs are presented and some key challenges ahead with current drive towards smart grid networks is also discussed.
