Abstract: Renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaics, solar thermal electricity using dish-stirling systems, and wind turbine power are environmentally advantageous sources of energy that can be considered for electric power generation. The expenses of renewable energy technologies have decreased in recent years, so that an ever-increasing number of applications can be economically justified by utilities. The integration of generation from renewable energy sources into electric power distribution systems is a reasonable way for electric utilities to apply renewable energy resources, since it places the sources near the load w i t h more efficient operation. The interfacing inverter is controlled to perform as a multi-function device by incorporating active power filter functionality and this inverter is used to inject power generated from Renewable Energy Sources to the grid. The objectives of this paper is to develop an assessment methodology for renewable energy electric generation and energy storage facilities integrated into electric power distribution systems which addresses the distributed benefits of electricity generation from renewable sources and their true value to the system, and to apply the methodology in case studies. The renewable energy sources which are interconnected to distributed network with interfacing power electronic inverter is analyzed for power quality enhancement by using MATLAB/SIMULINK software.
