Distribution Systems

Based on the solid foundation of our research achievements in transmission grids, we are developing modeling, control, and protection strategies for future distribution systems with significant DER integration.

Impacts of DERs on protection of distribution systems
  • We performed a quantitative analysis of the short circuit fault characteristics of a distributed PV system and identified their impact on the traditional overcurrent protection of distribution systems. [C1]
Protection of distribution systems integrated with DERs
  • We proposed an intelligent current protection algorithm applying a machine learning algorithm, i.e., the radial bias function neural network (RBFNN). It can online detect the low fault currents that are fed from DERs and also difficult to detect by conventional relays in distribution grids. [C2]
