Abstract: Rapidly growing the power consumption and decrease in generating and transmission capacities have set the trend towards the Distributed Generation (DG) sources. Still there is not a univer sal definition of DG. This paper discusses the different definitions proposed in the literature. For DG system to become a major part of the current power scenario it needs to be connected with the existing grid system. This integration will cause some technical, operational and economic impacts on distribution systems. This paper also summarizes these different impacts of DG on distribution system.
