A Multiagent System-Based Protection and Control Scheme for Distribution System With Distributed-Generation Integration

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal article

Abstract

In this paper, a multi agent system (MAS) based protection and control scheme is proposed to deal with diverse operation conditions in distribution system due to distributed generation (DG) integration. Based on cooperation between DG controller and relays, an adaptive protection and control algorithm is designed on converter based wind turbine DG to limit the influence of infeed fault current. With the consideration of DG control modes, an adaptive relay setting strategy is developed to help protective relays adapt suitable settings to different operation conditions caused by the variations of system topology and DG status. The proposed scheme is tested and validated on a test distribution system in a hardware-in-the-loop real time testing platform.
