Abstract

DC power systems have been investigated for transmission and distribution systems due to the advantages such as improved efficiency, reliability, and simpler configuration, as well as increasing DC-based distributed generation, energy storage, and loads. Along with comparatively short operating history and insufficient guidelines and standards, one of the current challenges is system protection techniques to deal with the highly dynamic and nonzero crossing nature of DC power. In this chapter, various coordinated protection schemes and applications for DC power systems have been reviewed in conjunction with the analysis of DC fault currents dynamics and topological bus configurations.
