Abstract
Micro protection is one of the challenges ahead of micro network expansion. Micro network functions in two states of connection to network and island. The short connection level of micro network is different at two functional levels. Therefore, the protection system which needs to diagnose the faults at two states would function improperly. In the preset article fault current limiter and oriented over-current relays optimal adjustment are implemented for micro network protection under the study. Additive particles optimal algorithm is used to adjust relays and fault current limiter impedance. The results show that by this method the micro networks can be secured at both two modes of functions.
