Small-scale power plants (also known as Distributed Generation) is a method for generating electricity using generators with a maximum capacity of 25MW. These can be installed close to end users, and/or connected to a distribution network with the ability to function continuously in order to supply power. Their benefits include reduced pollution compared with large plants, preserving natural and agricultural land, reducing gas consumption for rotating generators to meet the needs of domestic gas, production and consumption on site, reaching the stage of exploitation at as minimum time as possible, low investment requirements, and return on investment in the shortest possible time related to other projects. The small-scale, or distributed power plants present a very good technical and economic feasibility.
On the other hand, installing distributed power generators allows large consumers to have emergency and backup power when they shut down, and increase the reliability of their power system. In this regard, the increasing price of energy in the country and the development of industries for the management of energy losses in the production process, on the one hand, and the supportive policies for establishment of distributed power plants by the government, on the other hand, has led management team to hire skilled personnel to create a capable setup for the structured design of production plants and their changes to better manage energy and set up small scale power plants.
