Abstract

The steady shift of the power grid from the radial system to one with renewable distributed generation (DG) is proving to have impacts on the grid’s reliability. This project designs a reverse power mitigation system within Simulink that would detect the power output from a substation and send a signal to a DG inverter to control its output. In addition, the project studies possible impacts of reverse power flow on a National Grid substation and recommends ways of mitigation.
