The last decade has seen a dramatic rise in renewable energy converters connected to the grid, consisting mostly of intermittent distributed generators on the medium or low voltage grid. Due to this evolution in energy transmission, improved monitoring and control of the distribution grid is becoming mandatory in order to efficiently integrate the new power(More)
The increasing proportion of inverter based distributed generation (DG) in the power system may limit the short circuit power available at distribution substations and consequently cause significant troubles for the protection of distribution feeders where DG are connected. In this paper, the current practices of distribution network operators in dealing(More)
Conventional short circuit calculation programs do not consider the actual behavior of inverter based distributed generation (DG). Several techniques to consider them have been suggested in literature and are briefly described in this paper. A tool is developed with the combination of these techniques. The approach uses standard short circuit calculation(More)
The number of inverter-based distributed power generators connected to the power network has rapidly grown in recent years. The consequence of this phenomenon is an increasingly complex distribution grid requiring advanced and intelligent monitoring and observation tools in order to guarantee satisfactory power quality and reliability. This paper describes(More)
Currently, the majority of countries tries to reduce their dependency on fossil fuels by the introduction of renewable resources in their energy systems. In the following the relatively small Luxembourgish electricity system is analysed (0.55 Mio Inhabitants). Current power-system-models mainly focus on larger systems, due to the unavailability of specific(More)
This paper deals with a key functionality of the future distribution smart grids namely the automatic post-fault network self-healing. To this end we propose an optimization approach that aims finding the post-fault grid topology that minimizes the amount of unsupplied energy to consumers. The approach extends existing optimization models, developed in the(More)
This paper recapitulates an analytic control model for arbitrary island grids and presents findings on the dynamic behaviour of purely inverter driven island grids. Pole zero plots of different grid structures are presented and the influence of several inverter parameters on the grid stability is analysed. Findings show that for improved grid stability the(More)
