The integration of information and communication technologies (ICT) into
energy power systems provides new applications and possibilities for
grid control, operation, and protection. In this paper, a smart
self-sustained off-grid concept based on photovoltaics- and battery
energy storage system and low-voltage direct current (LVDC) power
distribution network is studied. Due to small electrification and poor
internet coverage, Sub-Saharan Africa is the target area of the concept
realization. Focusing on the application of deep learning, this research
presents new approaches to the power system's protection, as fault
detection and classification are one of the most essential LVDC
electricity distribution issues.
