    Abstract

    This paper presents the findings from hardware testing of photovoltaic inverters in a realistic low voltage network setting. The objective of the tests was to evaluate the performance of inverter built-in loss of mains protection. The evaluation focuses on ensuring that this protection operates as expected during islanding situations, while avoiding spurious tripping during severe grid disturbances.
