Notes on distributed generation of electricity and stability of microgrids

Here are some links on the question.

A representative from CVEC explained in a presentation that, in their experience, undersupply of electrical power was not a problem, rather oversupply was a problem. However, she emphasized, as long as capacity was overbuilt, their engineers felt oversupply could be managed by having available switchable large resistive loads, so unneeded current just went into Joule losses when necessary.
