Abstract—Distributed Generation (DG) is a promising solution to many power system problems such as voltage regulation, power loss, etc. The location in the power system for DG placement is found to be very important. The additional DG placement strategy is also found to depend largely on the total capacity and location of DG already installed on the system. In this paper, a design strategy based on a proposed “critical bus tracking” method for Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) DG is tested on a modified IEEE 14 bus test case. Matlab Distributed Computing System (MDCS) is applied for a reduced computation time. Program for contingency analysis is also implemented in MDCS to test the design strategy. Tests are conducted in the modified IEEE 14 bus and 300 bus test cases to study the efficiency of the parallel algorithm for DG placement design and contingency analysis.

Index Terms—Distributed generation, distributed computing, contingency analysis, voltage stability, Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell.
