These alternative power sources, known as distributed storage and generation sources (DSG) consist of an energy converter to transform sun, wind, or chemical energy into electricity, a power conditioner to convert DC to AC, relays, breakers and fuses for equipment protection and personnel safety, and appropriate load-metering equipment for billing customers. Some of the technological problems of interconnecting many DSGs to a power grid are addressed together with the trend in using digital techniques for advanced protective devices.
