Abstract: The proposed work develops a decision tree-induced fuzzy rule base intelligent protection scheme for fault detection and classification in a microgrid with multiple distributed generation interfaces. The proposed protection scheme retrieves one cycle post-fault current signal samples of each phase from fault inception at bus ends of the respective feeder to derive some differential features. The retrieved current samples are pre-processed using S-transform to obtain a time-frequency contour. The statistical features, such as energy, mean, standard deviation, and entropy, are computed from the time-frequency contour, which is further used to calculate the differential features. The differential features are used to build the fault classification tree. From the decision tree classification boundaries, the fuzzy membership functions are drawn, and further, the corresponding fuzzy rule base is generated for the final relaying decision. The proposed scheme is developed on a MATLAB/SIMULINK (The MathWorks, Natick, Massachusetts, USA) platform, including wide variations in faulted conditions, and the extensive test results indicate that the proposed intelligent relaying scheme can reliably provide protection measures for microgrids with different modes of operation. � 2015 Copyright � Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
