Asian Engineering Review, 2014, vol. 1, issue 1, 1-12

Abstract: This paper presents wavelet based islanding detection in distributed generation (DG) interfaced to the microgrid. Also a new fast method is developed for islanding detection based on measuring the utility currents and voltages signals processed by discrete wavelet transform. These currents and voltages signals are measured before the main circuit breaker of microgrid network and their features extracted by discrete wavelet transform. These features are sum of wavelet coefficients energy and are used for distinguishing the islanding conditions from non-islanding ones. Because of changing in measuring point of currents and voltages signals from point of common coupling (PCC) in traditional methods to before the main circuit breaker in proposed method, this new method detects the islanding conditions faster than the other methods. The proposed method has been examined under various scenarios; including mains supply faults, various one, two, or three phases' grid faults, and changes of rate of produced energy on IEEE 1547 anti-islanding test system. The numerical studies show the feasibility and applicability of the proposed method with satisfactory results.
