In this paper, a new islanding detectionmethod (IDM) is proposed to dynamically estimate islanding occurrence. The proposed dynamic estimators estimate amplitudes and phase angles of the current injected by the grid at the point of common coupling with the distributed generation (DG) in addition to the DG's bus voltage. A distributed two-level algorithm is proposed to detect an islanding condition for single and multi-DG configurations. Analytical design and transient analysis are carried out for the islanding detection problem to determine the nondetection zone (NDZ) of the proposed islanding detection algorithm. A local low-frequency meshed communication network is sufficient to achieve distributed islanding detection capability for a general multi-DG network with negligible NDZ. It is shown through simulations that the proposed IDM can successfully distinguish an islanding condition from other disturbances that may occur in power system networks.
