Q-axis current perturbation based active islanding detection for converter interfaced distributed generators
Thanks to the incessant developments in technology towards extracting electric power from renewable energy resources, incorporation of distributed generators has been gaining great importance in recent years. The key expedients for such power generation include reduction in power loss and improvement in the power quality and reliability. In spite of the numerous advantages, it is mandatory to ascertain the island formation and shut down the distributed generators (DGs) during an unplanned islanding. An analyzing technique subsequent to an active islanding detection technique is proposed in this work for faster and accurate detection of island formation. The proposed technique is investigated for various operating conditions, which include source side variations, and validated for various islanding and nonislanding events using the MATLAB R2017b/Simulink platform.
