Resumé

Microgrid, which is one of the main foundations of the future grid, inherits many properties of the smart grid such as, self-healing capability, real-time monitoring, advanced two-way communication systems, low voltage ride through capability of distributed generator (DG) units, and high penetration of DGs. These substantial changes in properties and capabilities of the future grid result in significant protection challenges such as bidirectional fault current, various levels of fault current under different operating conditions, necessity of standards for automation system, cyber security issues, as well as, designing an appropriate grounding system, fast fault detection/location method, the need for an efficient circuit breaker for DC microgrids. Due to these new challenges in microgrid protection, the conventional protection strategies have to be either modified or substituted with new ones. This study aims to provide a comprehensive review of the protection challenges in AC and DC microgrids and available solutions to deal with them. Future trends in microgrid protection are also briefly discussed.
