Anti-islanding protection is one of the most important requirements for the connection of Distributed Generators in power systems. This paper proposes a Social Spider Optimization (SSO) algorithm to detect unintentional islanding in power systems with distributed generation. The SSO algorithm is employed to differentiate frequency oscillations in synchronous generator those caused by non-islanding events. The SSO algorithm is based on the forging strategy of social spiders, which generated vibrations spread over the spider web to determine the positions of preys or any other disturbances. The vibrations from the spider are used to detect the occurrence of islanding in the synchronous generator. The SSO algorithm has superior performance when tested with IEEE 34 bus distribution system. The taken test system is evaluated for different scenarios and load distribution. The proposed SSO algorithm detects the islanding and prevents the system from undue tripping and outages. Furthermore, this technique may apply to prevent the system from islanding and maintains the future Indian Distributed Generation (DG) system reliability.
