With increased emphasis on reducing carbon footprints, many countries are moving towards generating power from distributed generation (DG) that can harness energy from renewable resources such as wind and solar generation. This paper discusses the electrical power system analysis and modeling required as part of the design process for a new-build township that will integrate generation based on solar energy technologies. The studies presented and discussed include load flow, fault level and harmonic penetration analysis. The studies were completed using the commercially available software package DIgSILENT.
