This paper analyzes the use of the voltage distortions in PWM voltage-source-inverters (VSIs) caused by the non-ideal behavior of the inverter for islanding detection purposes. The non-ideal characteristic of the inverters, mainly due to the dead-time needed to have safe commutations, produces fundamental frequency dependent harmonics (-5th, 7th...) in the… CONTINUE READING
