This paper proposes a method to mitigate the problems related to series arcing in low voltage dc (LVdc) micro-grids by performing voltage drop detection using the power electronic device at the load-side. Specifically, the selectivity of the designed series arc detection algorithm is shown for two constant power loads connected in parallel at the point of common coupling with a stable voltage dc micro-grid during accidental unplugging. The influence of the variations in the grid parameters on… CONTINUE READING
