Abstract: Incredible growth in demand for electricity with reliable, eco-friendly and efficient power has motivated the use of Distributed Generation (DG) all over the world. The problems associated with distributed generation system is unintentional islanding which causes power quality issues in the grid. During islanding operation, renewable energy sources such as solar, wind are used as distributed generation sources, supplies power to the local area. Islanding detection can be divided into remote and local methods; the later method is again classified into passive and active methods. In this paper, Passive technique is used for detecting the islanding condition which is carried out by controlling parameters like voltage and frequency. This is modeled and simulated in MATLAB Simulink software.
Keywords: Distributed resources, DG, Islanding operation, Islanding detection technique.
