Intentional islanding of distributed generation (DG) can support local supplies to critical customers in the event of network failure, thus increasing the system reliability. In such a case, the DG interface control is responsible for maintaining both the voltage and frequency on the islanded part of the network within the permissible operating levels. This paper presents a control strategy to intentionally island the DG during network failure with particular reference to inverter based DGs.
