Control of Microgrids

  title={Control of Microgrids},
  author={K.. De Brabandere and Koen Vanthournout and Johan Driesen and Geert Deconinck and R. Belmans},
  journal={2007 IEEE Power Engineering Society General Meeting},
The motivation to develop microgrids, as a particular form of active networks is explained and presented as an effective solution for the control of grids with high levels of distibuted energy resources. The operation, more in particular the voltage and frequency control, is discussed. Control concepts useful with microgrids are detailed and implemented. Besides technical control aspects, also economical ones are developed. Primary, secondary and tertiary control algorithms are designed… CONTINUE READING
