Islanding Detection Methods

Identification: “Review and Simulation Islanding detection methods – Validation on a dedicated mock-up”


  • Review of islanding detection methods used in converter
  • Comparison of methods through simulation
  • Validation of dynamic behavior with a dedicated test bench

Main characteristics of the test bench:

  • Objective: simulate an islanding situation on an open inverter
  • Test islanding algorithms with different local loads (RLC and Asynchronous machine)


Experimental bench scheme


Period: from 2014 to 2016

Sponsors: EDF

Context: Distributed generation, islanding protection

Main results:

  • Comparisons of different islanding detection methods
  • Experimental validation on a dedicated mock-up
