This paper presents a method to built a Petri Net (PN) to identify fault location in distribution systems with high penetration of distributed generation (DG). The design of PN is based on the composition of single PN, modeling protection systems and current detectors. A case study considering a typical Italian distribution grid is shown. The results highlight that the proposed method can remove a lot of complexity in data analysis also in presence of misoperation of protection systems.
