With the increasing presence of distributed generators (DGs), the implementation of a smart sensors and actuators network in distribution grids has become crucial for different monitoring, management and protection functionalities. For DGs monitoring and control, sensors and actuators are usually embedded in so-called interface devices (IDs) or interface protection systems (IPSs). Existing IDs lack in communication interfaces both to the electrical energy Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and to the DGs inverter. In this framework, the authors have developed a new ID solution and a proper communication architecture, which allow implementing new smart functionalities based on the interaction with the DSO, such as remote control of DG power production or islanding detection. As regards this last aspect, a new islanding algorithm is proposed, based on both local measurements and communications with DSO. The effectiveness of the proposed solution is shown on the real case study of Ustica Island’s distribution network.

Abstract

With the increasing presence of distributed generators (DGs), the implementation of a smart sensors and actuators network in distribution grids has become crucial for different monitoring, management and protection functionalities. For DGs monitoring and control, sensors and actuators are usually embedded in so-called interface devices (IDs) or interface protection systems (IPSs). Existing IDs lack in communication interfaces both to the electrical energy Distribution System Operators (DSOs) and to the DGs inverter. In this framework, the authors have developed a new ID solution and a proper communication architecture, which allow implementing new smart functionalities based on the interaction with the DSO, such as remote control of DG power production or islanding detection. As regards this last aspect, a new islanding algorithm is proposed, based on both local measurements and communications with DSO. The effectiveness of the proposed solution is shown on the real case study of Ustica Island’s distribution network.
