With the increasing penetration of distribution generation (DG), micro-grid operation becomes an attractive and valuable option. In order for micro-grids to become a viable option, issues such as micro-grid control and protection must be addressed and well established. The paper focuses on micro-grid protection and proposes the use of directional overcurrent relays for protecting a micro-grid consisting of synchronous based DGs. The key issue in selecting the relay settings is to achieve the… CONTINUE READING
