Fault Identification and Location for Distribution Network with Distributed Generations

Fault Identification and Location for Distribution Network with Distributed Generations AbstractPower distribution networks with distributed generations may experience faults. It is essential to promptly locate the fault for fast repair and restoration. This paper presents a novel method for identifying the faulted section and accurate location of faults that occur on power distribution grid. Appropriate matrices are set up to represent meter locations on the grid and the topology of the grid. The voltage and current measurements obtained are utilized to decide the fault sections. Then fault location is determined by solving equations that link measurements and fault locations through bus impedance matrix. The method is applicable to both single and simultaneous, multiple faults that may occur on unbalanced, meshed distribution networks with distributed generations. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Emerging Electric Power Systems de Gruyter

Abstract

AbstractPower distribution networks with distributed generations may experience faults. It is essential to promptly locate the fault for fast repair and restoration. This paper presents a novel method for identifying the faulted section and accurate location of faults that occur on power distribution grid. Appropriate matrices are set up to represent meter locations on the grid and the topology of the grid. The voltage and current measurements obtained are utilized to decide the fault sections. Then fault location is determined by solving equations that link measurements and fault locations through bus impedance matrix. The method is applicable to both single and simultaneous, multiple faults that may occur on unbalanced, meshed distribution networks with distributed generations.
