Project Abstract / Summary : Islanding is a process in power system where grid connected loads are separated from the generating station when a grid fault occurs such that the fault do not cascade to the generators and trip them.In such situations it will be expensive and take a long time to restore the activities to normal condition.So to avoid these uninterrupted power disturbances the concept of islanding has been introduced.Existing system uses under frequency relays to sense the drop in frequency and disconnect the grid loads from the station which has many drawbacks where it cannot be configured to a definite value.In this system,there is a delay in communication and manual errors occur in decision making.To overcome these disadvantages we have proposed a model using frequency transducer and islanding computers programmed using C graphics in order to establish a successful islanding where we have used a simple electronic interfacing hardware.

Why did you choose to work on this project topic : This project would help the engineers to provide a stable power system without any unplanned disturbances and a highly efficient system as it involves computer programming.No manual error tend to occur in this system.

Project Highlights : Our project is worth as it focuses on power distribution to vital areas even during fault conditions.We have also introduced an idea of providing separate islanding computers in the power station for monitoring and controlling such a complicated process.Thus there will be a great progression in our power system.
