As PV deployment levels increase, loss of mains detection, or islanding detection, has again arisen as a primary concern among the utility community. This is true especially in multi-inverter cases, cases with a mix of distributed resources, and on difficult feeders on which false tripping may be a disproportionately significant problem. Power line carrier communications can be effective in solving this problem for all types of distributed generation. This paper provides an update on laboratory… CONTINUE READING
