Review: Distribution Generation and Islandin

Asha Gaikwad, Prachi Jeevane


The demand for distributed generation (DG) has increased in recent years and many countries across the world are adopting it due to various factors such as improvements in technologies including renewable energy sources and the efficiency it provides. However, islanding detection is of prime importance as it can be hazardous to the maintenance workers. The increasing use of distributed generation causes more number of parameters to be controlled for the proper functioning of the utility. Formation of islands is a problem in such type of generation. This paper gives a review on a brief introduction on islanding, its types, reasons for formation of islands, challenges and the recent techniques available for islanding detection with its comparison so as to avoid complete grid failure.


Keywords: Distributed generation, nondetection zones, islanding, islanding detection, point of common coupling
