Abstract

Nowadays, there is a great interest in installation of dispersed generation systems in low voltage or medium voltage distribution systems, all over the world. Some standards suggest that all dispersed generation systems should be disconnected from the power system as an earth fault has occurred in the distribution system which can lead to an ineffective solution due to disconnection of a huge number of units. In this paper, the connection of dispersed generation systems to the power distribution system at short circuit faults are studied and the results of the connected or disconnected units are investigated. The simulations done with ATP-EMTP prove the capability of handling the power system stability with standard voltage and current characteristics when a fault has occurred in the power distribution system.
