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.
