Abstract

This paper presents a communication based protection automation system which is designed for solving DG related protection problems. The system is able to tackle problems related protection blinding, nuisance tripping of feeders and generators and problems related to unintentional islanding. Moreover, the system can be configured to allow low voltage ride-through without compromising loss of mains protection. However, the system also has the potential of enhancing the reliability
of electricity distribution service to DG units by automatically switching an alternative feeding path if the original feeding route is faulted.
