Abstract
The continuously increasing penetration of renewable energy resources has brought up the subject of intentional islanding operation. Islanding operation refers to supplying parts of the grid exclusively through distributed energy generation (DEG), without connection to the main grid. Considerable penetration of DEG creates a reverse power flow, which challenges the traditional protection schemes. Intentional islanding operation creates additional challenges. This work aims at highlighting the factors, which need to be considered upon designing protection concepts for intentional islanding operation on Medium Voltage (MV) Grids.
