Connection and use of embedded generators in distribution networks have been increasing in many parts of the world in recent years. Generally, this project is focused on embedded generation studies and the impact on the distribution system. These embedded generators, can significantly affect the power flow of the distribution network, the losses of such networks will in turn be affected as well. Since the embedded generation (EG) affects the load flows in the network. It is important to analyze and perform system studies to make sure whether the network is needed to adjust to accommodate the embedded generator. Thus, the power flow analysis is required to review all the impact of EG on the quality of power of the system. In this paper, A Matlab load flow analysis program with graphical user interface (GUI) has been developed by using Newton- Raphson method. As a result, the analysis between the network using EG and the conventional of power system connection can be made to look out the impact of both network on the power flow of the system. Therefore at the end of this project, the effect of EG on distribution system can be obtained and proved.
