Protection Issues Microgrid

Protection Issues in MICROGRID – A Synthetic View

The independent power systems - Microgrids are the most important solution to overcome the power blackout due to overloading of main electrical grid. As a localized power grid, microgrid has its own generation sources, and definable load systems.It also works with renewable energy sources for power generation which tends to the usage of storage resources according to the requirement. Microgrid can operate in line with the traditional grid as well it can be disconnected from the grid to operate autonomously. It tends to provide reliable, quality and efficient energy supply to customers. Apart from the major issues like power flow control, power quality, and stability still the implementation of microgrids pose some technical challenges at the protection level of microgrid. This study mainly focuses on the protection issues faced by microgrid and some possible remedies to overcome the technical challenges at the microgrid protection phase.

Moving Towards Better Indian Electricity Grid Discipline

Moving Towards Better Indian Electricity Grid Discipline – Part 1

The Indian power sector has gone through many innovative reforms for improving the grid discipline. The implementation of the Availability Based Tariff (ABT) was the most economical approach to stabilize the varying grid frequency. This article is to appraise the major changes in the permissible operable frequency range by certain amendments in Indian Electricity Grid Code (IEGC) and it encompasses all the changes in the ABT. This article seeks to investigate the efficiency of the implementation of the availability based tariff by reviewing the frequency profile of the grid. The article also highlights one scenario where Indian power system exhibited excellent discipline when suddenly load fell by 31 GW in just 4-5 minute on 5th April, 2020.
