    Abstract :

    A significant increase in the penetration of distributed generation has resulted in a possibility of operating distribution systems with distributed generation in is-landed mode. Using local information, to overcome the challenges of the directional over current protection in distribution systems with distributed generation by use of adaptive protection. The trip characteristics of the relays are updated by detecting the operating states (grid connected or island) and the faulted section. The project also proposes faulted section detection using time over current characteristics of the protective relays. Earth Fault Protection is also done by creating very low Impedance path.
