Unbalanced and over current Fault protection in low voltage DC bus micro grid systems

  • Published 2016

Unlike traditional AC distribution systems, protection has been challenging for DC systems. Multi-terminal DC power systems do not have the years of practical experience and standards that AC power systems have. Also, the current power electronic devices cannot survive or sustain high magnitude faults. Converters will shut down to protect themselves under faulted conditions. This makes locating faults in DC system difficult, and causes the DC bus to de-energize. A fault protection algorithm and…

Smart protection system for identification and localisation of faults in multi‐terminal DC microgrid
: DC microgrid provides the horizontal infrastructures to integrate distributed generation (DG) and loads. Unlike traditional AC systems, DC systems cannot survive or sustain high magnitude fault


Power sequencing approach to fault isolation in dc systems: Influence of system parameters
We show that medium-voltage dc power buses can be protected against short circuit faults by coordinating the action of a converter that supplies power to the bus with the action of contactors that

I and i
There is, I think, something ethereal about i —the square root of minus one, which seems an odd beast at that time—an intruder hovering on the edge of reality.
