The integration of the distributed power generation into a distribution system comes with several system problems. One of the teething problems related to system protection is islanding detection. Various anti-islanding techniques based on feature evaluation were proposed in the recent past. However, they overlook the need for justifying the selection of a particular detection feature among all the possible measures. In this study, a wrapper feature selection approach is proposed where a

To select the optimum features, five standard objective functions have been considered, such as dependability, security, accuracy, F-measure, and the number of features. About 1864 cases have been generated from the designed IEEE 13 bus system to extract the sensitive features. IEEE 1547 standards have been considered while designing and testing the IEEE 13 bus system against islanding. The selected optimal features detect the islanded condition decisively for both synchronous and inverterbased distributed generators. The features also validate their performance under noisy environment accurately with lesser computational time.
