This paper investigates the impacts of PV interconnection on the protection systems of a distribution network, especially when power flow is reversed in high penetration scenarios. A Florida based substation and its six-feeders were selected for the study. The system was slightly modified to make it a notional system that still closely represents the actual system behavior from the point of view of system protection. The main modification is in the representations of loads, where all the loads… CONTINUE READING
