Power grids

The work starts with a short overview of grid requirements for photovoltaic (PV) systems and control structures of grid-connected PV power systems. Advanced control strategies for PV power systems are presented next, to enhance the integration of this technology. The aim of this work is to investigate the response of the three-phase PV systems during symmetrical and asymmetrical grid faults.

The Kirk circle is a simple and effective method for representing power graphs and visualizing their topology. In general, nodes (buses) in an electrical network are numbered with neighboring nodes assigned consecutive or closely proximal numbers. This allows for sequential mapping of these nodes in increasing order of their numerical labels to evenly spread points on a Kirk circle. In the Kirk circle, the edge connections (branches) between nodes are indicated by straight lines (chords) between the appropriate points on the circle.

This dataset contains (1) the Simulink model of a three-phase photovoltaic power system with passive anti-islanding protections like over/under current (OUC), over/under voltage (OUV), over/under frequency (OUF), rate of change of frequency (ROCOF), and dc-link voltage and (2) the results in the voltage source converter and the point of common coupling of the photovoltaic system during islanding operation mode and detection times of analyzed anti-islanding methods.

This work presents a novel Anti-Islanding (AI) protection of Photovoltaic (PV) Systems based on monitoring the dc-link voltage of the PV inverter. A PV System equipped with AI protection like frequency relays, a rate of change of frequency (ROCOF) relay, and respectively the proposed dc-link voltage relay is simulated under the conditions of islanding and the detection time for all these AI techniques are compared. The study shows under which conditions our proposed dc-link voltage AI relay is the most efficient.
