Abstract: This thesis experimentally validates the performance of an active islanding detection method under various scenarios. It is also analytically shown that the islanding detection method has a non-detection zone (NDZ), and a method to eliminate the NDZ is proposed. Moreover, the performance of an autonomous mode controller for islanded DG units is experimentally evaluated. Based on a robustness analysis, it is shown that the controller, which is basically designed for the nominal plant, can maintain the stability of the system despite of significant load uncertainties. The feasibility of the islanding detection method for islanding detection in two-DG systems is also experimentally investigated. Moreover, a control strategy for autonomous operation of two-DG systems is proposed, and its performance is experimentally evaluated. Then, adopting the islanding detection method and the proposed control strategy, the viability of smooth transitions from grid-connected modes to autonomous (islanded) modes in two-parallel DG systems is experimentally validated.
