There are no negative or zero sequence currents present in inverter-based distributed energy resources (DERs). A thorough understanding of DER’s fault characteristics is essential for fault investigation and relay configuration. While DER models have been extensively studied, there have been few studies examining DER’s fault behaviour during real fault occurrences. Dominion Energy’s reported fault incidents are examined in this article. To demonstrate that real DER fault responses may vary from prior understandings, fault magnitudes, angles and sequence components are analysed. Additionally, the conductor’s resistance is increased during faults by a Super Conducting fault current limiter (SFCL) linked in series with DER. There is a side-by-by-side comparison with and without the SFCL to highlight the fault characteristics.In the present study, researcher has performed sentiment analysis on YouTube comments on the most popular topics nowadays by using Classifier techniques.
