Traditional interconnection standards avoid the islanding operation of distributed generators (DGs) because of concerns of equipment failure and safety. However, in some cases, allowing the islanding operation of DGs in a radial subtransmission system could improve system reliability and decrease outage cost during power outages or a scheduled maintenance. This paper presents an impact study on a DG connected to a radial subtransmission system. The dynamic study is conducted to show how to manage DGs and electric power systems for the proper intentional islanding in specific cases.
