Self-Healing, Smart Grid, Fault-Location, Isolation, Service Restoration


Self-healing is an important characteristic of smart grid. In power distribution systems it has the objective of performing fault location, isolation and service restoration with or without limited distribution system operator and repair crew intervention. By more foreign or international self-healing control techniques, combined with the definition of Smart Grid, this paper analyses the techniques to achieve self-healing of power system.
