Experimental design of a series arc load side detection algorithm for DC microgrid protection

Abstract

Unplugging of energized loads in dc microgrids can cause safety concerns to users in residential areas. Sustained series arcs are more relevant in dc systems than in ac due to absence of current zero crossing. In this paper, the series arcs are detected from the load side, wherein, the proposed algorithm monitors the drop in load capacitor voltage… (More)
