The growth in the use of distributed generation is driven by a selection of drivers including the demand for greater exploitation of sources of renewable energy, the economics of small and medium scale units and the opportunities for independent power supplies. Currently, these generators are operated simply to deliver preset levels of power to the network with the unit's control scheme operating as a slave. This paper highlights the opportunities to develop the control schemes so that they can enhance their impact and contribution on the network. The first opportunity is to maximise the active power delivered to the network by introducing local voltage control by reactive power control. The second opportunity is to enable the generator to support the local supply in event of a loss of grid connection. By maintaining the supply to adjacent consumers, the generator is not only continuing to generate, but is also improving the quality of supply to that part of the network.
