Power system-controlled islanding is one of the mitigation techniques taken to prevent blackouts during severe outage. The implementation of controlled islanding will lead to the formation of few islands, that can operate as a stand-alone island. However, some of these islands may not be balanced in terms of generation and load after the islanding execution. Therefore, a good load shedding scheme is required to meet the power balance criterion so that it can operate as a balanced stand-alone island. Thus, this paper developed a load shedding scheme-based metaheuristics technique namely modified discrete evolutionary programming (MDEP) technique to determine the optimal amount of load to be shed in order to produce balanced stand-alone islands. The developed load shedding scheme is evaluated and validated with two other load shedding techniques which are conventional EP and exhaustive search techniques. The IEEE 30-bus and 39-bus test systems were utilized for this purpose. The results proves that the load shedding based MDEP technique produces the optimal amount of loads to be shed with shortest computational time as compared with the conventional EP and exhaustive search techniques. � 2021 Institute of Advanced Engineering and Science.
