Detailed review on Island detection methods

What is it about?

The paper gives a comprehensive review of islanding issues, standard test systems, criteria and shifting of research trends in islanding detection methods (IDMs).

Why is it important?

The significant contributions pertain to categorization of IDMs, evaluation of non-detection zone (NDZ) for each test system, disquisition on evolution and advancement of IDMs and its comparisons based on criteria such as NDZ, run on time, nuisance tripping percentage, applicability in multi DG system and implementation cost to draw out the strength and shortcomings of individual methods that will come to aid to the companies or researchers for establishing the applicability and appropriateness of such method for their concerned domain.

A comprehensive survey of available IDMs has been dealt with in this paper. A brief introduction of each method is provided so that the shifting of the research ideas of the islanding methods can be comprehended vividly. The furtherance of each IDM with time is also discussed. The appropriateness of IDMs has been analyzed in terms of NDZ, run on time, nuisance tripping percentage, applicability in multi DG system and implementation cost. The PMS of islanding test systems have also been evaluated to materialize NDZ concept. Since there is no uniform islanding test bed, the IDMs are not compared on a single platform. Therefore, the efficacy of such methods varies with test beds.
