Abstract

This report details the fifth of a series of case studies which are intended to disseminate knowledge about the impact of distributed generation (DG) on distribution systems planning and operation. This case study investigates the dynamic behaviour of rotating machine-based DG subsequent to the disconnection of the substation breaker. The passive trip settings defined in the IEEE 1547-2003 Standard are evaluated in terms of their ability to be used as anti-islanding protection for rotating machines. The second edition for this series of case studies is meant to update the information in the first edition, add cases involving doubly-fed induction generator and facilitate the study of the integration of DG into distribution systems. The simulations of this report were carried out using latest official release of CYMDIST 5.02 rev04 of the CYME software package. This case study is meant to be accompanied by the CYMDIST case study files; however, it also serves as a self-contained and informative report.
