dc.description.abstractElectricity production nowadays is one of the major concerns that governments seek to evolve and ameliorate. A lot of work was done, and many objectives are still pending; from fossil fuels to clean energy, the process is in a never ending update. As technologies proceed in a fast pace, the manufacturing and implementation of renewable energy sources inside electric grids is becoming a must due to high increasing demands in power consumption. Lately, traditional grids are becoming a burden on both the utilities and the consumers as the procedure is set to work mechanically and manually; however, when technological components started to be added, these grids turned out to become smart grids, where simplicity, automation and rapid flow is the key. In this project, the standard IEEE 6-bus power system is modeled in Matlab/Simulink; the power flow is obtained under an ideal case of power sources, then a realistic power plant based on a synchronous machine is added on a node replacing one generator, and the system is studied under the implementation of a smart grid as well. The power outputs, as well as voltages and currents, are investigated with and without renewable sources in order to test for the efficiency of relying on solar farms and wind turbines beside power plants and generators. Results tend to show the performance of the system in different case scenarios, such as a sudden load addition and a short circuit occurrence.en_US
