    Abstract: Micro protection is one of the challenges ahead of micro network expansion. Micro network functions in two states of connection to network and island. The short connection level of micro network is different at two functional levels. Therefore, the protection system which needs to diagnose the faults at two states would function improperly. In the ... Show More
