Abstract

This paper contains a description of an adaptive protection
scheme that has been implemented and demonstrated in a
hardware in the loop simulation environment using
commercially available protection hardware and IEC
61850 communications.The implementation is based on an
actual 11kV system which includes distributed generation
and network automation.
IEC 61850 communications offers several benefits for the
implementation of adaptive protection, but also presents
some limitations which are discussed in the paper. An
alternative approach to overcome a number of the
limitations is also presented.
