Abstract

Efficiently calculating non-detection zones (NDZ) becomes increasingly important when evaluating unintentional islanding risks of distribution grids that are highly integrated with distributed energy resources (DER). In this paper, a rigorous theoretical method, the DER-Driven Non-Detection Zone (D 2 NDZ), is presented to estimate NDZ for any given distribution feeders. Numerical examples indicate that by using D 2 NDZ, NDZ can be quickly and effectively obtained while avoiding numerous and time-consuming electromagnetic transient simulations. Therefore, D 2 NDZ offers utilities engineers a powerful tool to better understand and operate their systems.
