This paper addresses the timely issues of modeling of, and defining selection criteria for, a solid state fault isolation device (FID) to be used in power electronic based distribution systems (PEDS). Circuit interruption requirements and FID location in power electronics based distribution system are discussed in this paper. The paper subsequently derives the FID parameters by mapping the characteristics of a conventional medium-voltage distribution system onto that of the PEDS envisioned… CONTINUE READING
