An isolated power system (IPS) is usually operated under a bad environment and is influenced by external disturbances. Advanced load restoration technology is an important way to enhance the survivability and reliability of IPS. This paper proposes a fast load restoration approach based on Input-to-State Stability (ISS) theory for IPS. The method can recover load after an outage happens in an IPS under severe perturbations. In the proposed restoration approach, both stability and security constraints are considered based on the ISS theory, which can guarantee the stable and secure operation of IPS during the restoration dynamic process. These constraints have good adaptability for topology transformation and operation status transition of IPS. A heuristic approach to efficiently solve the load restoration problem is proposed, where bisection search is used to check the feasibility of the loads to be restored. Case studies on a typical IPS are used to verify the proposed method. View Full-Text
