This paper presents a novel distributed finite-time control scheme for heterogeneous battery energy storage systems (BESSs) in droop-controlled microgrids. In contrast to the existing centralized methods, the proposed control strategy is fully distributed so that each BESS only requires its own information and the information from its neighbors through a sparse communication network. Our novel consensus-based method is implemented to achieve energy level balancing, active/reactive power sharing…
