Abstract: In most countries, electricity power grids have not undergone extensive modernization and/or liberalization.
They are still predominantly vertically integrated i.e. designed and opera ted top (Generation)-down (Distri bution/loads). Increasing electricity demand and rising costs are ca using congestion and strain on power distribution networks cperartens. Fossil fuels are in decline and blamed for most negative environmental
l and cUmadc imp acts on world economics and societal maleficence. Through out the world they are heightened impetuses to migrate to cleaner Renewable Energy (RE) sources and incorporate more intelligence in the utilization of energy. This has birthed the concept of smart grids with high participation of various clean energy sources . Hybrid renewable energy generation (HRE) systems are complementary technologies that have potential to mitigate climatic variability effects which are still a challenge with respect to dispatchability of RE resources. The emerging smart power grids are no longer unidirectional in terms of energy Row, but also allow users to inject energy back into the grids. The bi-directional now of energy has a significant positive impact on overall systems design and operation. This article provides an overview of
the preliminary work that done to assess impact scenarios on power grids with increased penetration of RE. Simulation results show possible negative factors that may affect QoS parameters of typical LV power networks.
