We present the design and experimental validation of a scalable dc microgrid for rural electrification in emerging regions. A salient property of the dc microgrid architecture is the distributed control of the grid voltage, which enables both instantaneous power sharing and a metric for determining the available grid power. A droop-voltage power-sharing scheme is implemented wherein the bus voltage droops in response to low supply/high demand. In addition, the architecture of the dc microgrid… CONTINUE READING
