Abstract

This paper presents the results from a laboratory experiment of a single machine islanded area operated as a synchronous island. The paper also presents how this was realized as well as explaining the control theory that was utilized. The methodology given in this paper serves as a platform on which multi-machine islanding will be based. The laboratory setup consist of a generator model realized by a DC machine coupled with a synchronous machine rated at 5 kVA / 4 kW nominal. The generator is coupled with a load bank rated 5 kW nominal. The laboratory experiment consist of the generator coupled with the load bank. The island controller is implemented with Python code running on a Raspberry Pi.
