Abstract With the rising environmental problems associated with the use of conventional energy sources from fossil fuel and the decrease of the cost of renewable energy technologies, micro-grid powered by micro-hydropower and photovoltaic systems has become a very popular choice for remote area electrification. However, micro-grid systems still face several issues with stability due to the variations of energy demand at different periods and the unpredictable behavior of distributed energy sources. This paper presents a micro-grid design powered by renewable energy sources and the simulation of its transient stability when subjected to three-phase faults at different locations. A Graphical User Interface (GUI) that displays the performance and stability of the micro-grid was also created. The results of this study can be utilized for future decision making in the electrical planning of the micro-grid. The critical clearing time data can be used in the selection of proper protective equipment and relay time settings.
