Abstract

Protection of feeders and equipment becomes more complex when relatively large amounts of power are generated in distribution networks. In order to analyze thoroughly the effects of distributed generation on the requirements for the protection of distribution networks, detailed simulation studies are necessary. This paper focuses on the simulation of distribution protection problems coursed by DG penetration in distribution networks. The detailed analysis is carried out in part I of these series. Also, Fault current limiters (FCL) is proposed as a method for fault current limiting that can be able to solve the problem. So, in this paper simulation is carried out without and using FCL for illustrates the effect of FCLs. In these studies PSCAD/EMTDC transient simulation software has been applied. Key word: DG, distribution system, protection coordination, fault current limiter
