- Due to the high penetration of distributed Generators (DG) power, traditional protection schemes fail to operate. An Improved protection scheme has been proposed to detect faults in distribution line interconnected with DG source which is operating in current controlled mode. In the area of transmission line protection, behaviour of Distance relay characteristics on interconnected lines fed from Wind farms has been investigated. A novel approach for smooth transition between islanded and grid connected modes of a microgrid based on optimal control based bumpless switching and a pole placement based approach is proposed. Hardware scheme for implementing an adaptive relay needed in microgrid has been developed. An algorithm was proposed using z-bus Matrix for calculating the fault current in microgrid in an adaptive condition.
