Transformation of conventional power networks into smart grids with the heavy penetration level of renewable energy resources, particularly grid-connected Photovoltaic (PV) systems, has increased the need for efficient fault identification systems. Malfunctioning any single component in grid-connected PV systems may lead to grid instability and other serious consequences, showing that a reliable fault identification system is the utmost requirement for ensuring operational integrity. Therefore…
