Access to modern energy services should be universally available by 2030. This is a goal of the United Nations. A promising approach to deliver on this commitment is based on microgrids that coordinate power generation, storage and usage in a local community. Microgrids constitute an attractive option in the presence of abundant renewable energy sources, and in the absence of robust transnational power grid infrastructure. An important problem is then to design cheap, resilient and configurable…

Implementation and testing of anti-islanding algorithms for IEEE 929-2000 compliance of single phase photovoltaic inverters

Electrical system islanding occurs when the utility grid is removed but local sources continue to operate and provide power to local loads. This can present safety hazards and the possibility of

Control Strategy for Flexible Microgrid Based on Parallel Line-Interactive UPS Systems

A small-signal analysis is presented in order to analyze the system stability, which gives rules to design the main control parameters, and results are presented, showing the feasibility of the proposed controller.

Design and Analysis of a Grid-Connected Photovoltaic Power System

A grid-connected photovoltaic (PV) power system with high voltage gain is proposed, and the steady-state model analysis and the control strategy of the system are presented in this paper. For a

Control of distributed generation systems - Part II: Load sharing control

This work is concerned with the control strategy for the parallel operation of distributed generation systems (DGS) in a standalone ac power supply. The proposed control method uses only

A master and slave control strategy for parallel operation of three-phase UPS systems with different ratings
