The line of Embedded Generation {EG) in power systems has increased markedly in recent years. The interconnection of EG has a technical impact which needs to be considered One of the technical challenges faced by the Distribution Network Operator (DNO) is the network fault level. In this research project, the different methods of interconnection with and without EG on the network is analyzed by looking at the impact of network fault level. This comparative study is made to determine the most effective method to reduce fault level or fault current. This project expresses the fault level effects when synchronous generator is connected to a network by different methods of interconnection. A three phase fault is introduced at one network bus bar. By employing it to three different types of network configurations which are normal interconnection, series reactor connection and splitting network connection with and without EG, the fault level has been simulated and analyzed. Developing the network model using PSS-Viper™ software package, the fault level for all networks will be compared and the effective method is defined. From the comparison study, network splitting was found to be the best interconnection method and has the greatest potential for reducing the fault level in the network
