Fault interruption devices; Medium voltage distributed systems
"Faults in electric power grids often result in long term interruption of electricity supply. The frequent and the sudden occurrences of faults undermine the reliability and continuity of electric networks. However, the new age digital economy demands a continuous supply of electricity of high power quality. This demand of continuous supply and the effort to increase the penetration of renewable power sources into the electric grid has led to a need of highly efficient and flexible systems with the ability to provide power of very high quality. The solid state fault interruption device (SSFID) is one amongst those devices. It is used to quickly isolate sections of the networks where permanent faults have occurred. The development and simulated testing of a SSFID to validate its use in future medium voltage transmission systems is discussed. Also, the effects of using these SSFIDs in such systems during faults are investigated"--Abstract, page iii.
