Distributed Generation Systems 2006


The UK Government aspires to generate 20% of UK electricity from renewable energy sources by the year 2020. In practice, this will be connected as "distributed generation", primarily domestic and industrial CHP schemes, wind farms and diesel power generation, in addition to other renewables such as hydro and solar PV.

This event aims to provide engineers with an appreciation of the technical issues relating to distributed generation. The topics cover the principal prime movers, to generators, their control and protection, through to connection to the distribution network.

Industrial speakers will present examples of actual installations, covering in detail fault calculations, protection and earthing of generators and generator sizing. The main technologies are CHP, wind and diesel. This includes connection of distributed generation, and its commercial issues.

Continued professional development shall also be catered for.


  • Your own copy of Engineering Recommendation G.59 and have its application explained through numerous case studies.
  • To hear leading experts in the field, including industrial experiences and case studies.
  • To visit the New and Renewable Energy Centre.


All engineers involved or potentially involved with distributed generation from organisations such as generating companies, regional electricity companies, renewable energy groups, consultants, industries with their own generation capacity, academics, researchers and manufacturers. In particular, those who require fist hand explanations of the application of Engineering Recommendation G.59 should benefit greatly from this course.
