This paper addresses the impact of renewable power generation such as photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy in the existing power system operations. Modeling of these renewable energy sources to assess the impact on the power flow of the electric power system by various researchers and research organisations and utilities are outlined. Challenges and protection schemes of renewable power integration into the existing grid are discussed through a detailed literature review and study of renewable integration into the Indian power system are outlined including potential planning and policy actions to support renewable energy integration in India.
