Fault Direction Estimation for DFIG Integrated Distribution System

  title={Fault Direction Estimation for DFIG Integrated Distribution System},
  author={Adela Chirita Emandi},
In Recent years, Distributed energy sources such as wind generators, PV generators, fuel cells have become more attractive to integrate in power system at distribution level because of environmental issues and to replace the fossil fuels which are decreasing day by day. The distributed generation is expected to play a major role in future power systems. The solar and wind energy forms are the two main formsof the renewable energy resources. But, the presence of renewable energy resources will… 



Three-Phase Fault Direction Identification for Distribution Systems With DFIG-Based Wind DG

Distributed generation (DG) integration necessitates upgrading some distribution system overcurrent relays to directional ones to offer selective protection. The directional feature is conventionally

Integration Issues of Distributed Generation in Distribution Grids

It is demonstrated that in compact distribution grids voltage control problems and blinding of protection are not likely to occur and that false tripping and fault level have to be considered carefully.

A Simple Adaptive Overcurrent Protection of Distribution Systems With Distributed Generation

The use of adaptive protection, using local information, is proposed to overcome the challenges of the overcurrent protection in distribution systems with distributed generation.

Modeling and Performance Analysis of an Integrated Wind/Diesel Power System for Off-Grid Locations

This paper presents the modeling and performance analysis of wind/diesel hybrid generating system. Such configurations are typical for remote rural communities which are disconnected from the larger

Fault diagnosis in distribution networks with distributed generation

A new method to eliminate DG's negative effects on the existing distribution network protection

Distributed Generation (DG) will affect the amperage, direction and distribution of fault current. With the penetration of DG, the existing protection and automatic devices may not operate correctly.

A strategy for protection coordination in radial distribution networks with distributed generators

In this paper, a simple and effective strategy is proposed for the coordination of protective devices in typical radial distribution networks embedding distributed generation units. The proposed


Variable speed wind turbines (WT) based on the Doubly-Fed Induction Generator (DFIG) is commercially offered and is frequently used in grid connected mode. The variable speed operation in such wind

Restoration of Directional Overcurrent Relay Coordination in Distributed Generation Systems Utilizing Fault Current Limiter

A new approach is proposed to solve the directional overcurrent relay coordination problem, which arises from installing distributed generation (DG) in looped power delivery systems (PDS). This

Current-Only Directional Overcurrent Protection for Distribution Automation: Challenges and Solutions

Possible utilizations of the current-only directional relay in the distribution side protection are described, which is a key focus area for enabling the smart grid.
