Power sharing and management in a utility connected DC microgrid
MetadataShow full item record
© 2017 IEEE. This paper introduces a control technique for proportional load sharing in a DC microgrid during both islanded and utility connected modes. The DC microgrid is connected to a utility system through an interlinking voltage source converter and a unidirectional DC-DC converter. The DC-DC converter draws the desired amount of power from the utility, while the interlinking converter holds the DC bus voltage. The DERs in the DC microgrid are operated under droop sharing using DC-DC converters. Each DC-DC converter is equipped with a state feedback with integral controller that can regulate its output voltage for a wide range of input voltage fluctuation and load variation. Simulation studies are conducted on PSCAD/EMTDC to validate the proposal.

Voltage-sharing converter to supply single-phase asymmetrical four-level diode-clamped inverter with high power factor loadsBoora, A.; Nami, A.; zare, F.; Ghosh, Arindam; Blaabjerg, F. (2010)The output voltage quality of some of the single-phase multilevel inverters can be improved when their dc-link voltages are regulated asymmetrically. Symmetrical and asymmetrical multilevel diode-clamped inverters have ...
Majumder, R.; Dewadasa, M.; Ghosh, Arindam; Ledwich, G.; zare, F. (2011)This paper discusses the control and protection of a microgrid that is connected to utility through backto-back converters. The back-to-back converter connection facilitates bidirectional power flow between the utility ...
Ambia, M.; Al-Durra, A.; Caruana, C.; Muyeen, S.M. (2012)In this paper, islanding operation of a hybrid micro-grid system is proposed with power management control scheme. When micro-grid system undergoes transition from grid connected to the islanded mode, it is required for ...
