The emergence of Distributed Generation (DG) in the electric system has brought about the appearance of the islanding phenomenon. In AC networks, there are a lot of Islanding Detection Methods (IDMs) have been studied. However, not too much IDMs in DC networks have been published because of the absence of frequency and reactive power. The hybrid IDM based on injected perturbation signal and rate of change of power output is proposed. This IDM can detect islanding condition not only in the worst case (the power of load and PV are equal) but also in another case (the power of load is greater than the power of PV). It can be applicable to both single and multi-PV operation scenarios. Besides, the effectiveness of the proposed method is verified by simulation in Matlab/Simulink.
