Supergrid VS distributed generation
Super Grid , Smart Grid , Renewable Energy Sources, Distributed Generation and other fashion concepts can be astonishing when they are put together and not clearly harmonized. In fact they only apparently, but not really, imply opposite visions of the future power system. Distributed Generation (DG) has been associated, at first, with a “small scale” […]
