Abstract – In the recent developed world we have to use electricity in an efficient way so we have to use micro-grids which is a grid system we have another operation that is Islanding mode but its detection is a great challenge in connecting distributed generation (DG) in electrical power systems. These detection methods are of two groups, one is communication based methods, active, and passive methods. Communication based methods are established based on communication between utilities and DGs which maintenance and operation is expensive to use. Active methods perturb are used where the disturbance is detected and analyzed. This detection circuit model of the micro-grid islanding is simulated by the software of MATLAB/Simulink, and the simulation results show that the islanding detection method gave better results and find the micro-grid islanding detection easily
