Secondary Load-Frequency Control for MicroGrids in Islanded Operation

  title={Secondary Load-Frequency Control for MicroGrids in Islanded Operation},
  author={Ana Madureira and C. Moreira and J. A. Pecas Lopes},
The objective of this paper is to present novel control strategies for MicroGrid operation, especially in islanded mode. The control strategies involve mainly the coordination of secondary load-frequency control by a MicroGrid Central Controller that heads a hierarchical control system able to assure stable and secure operation when the islanding of the MicroGrid occurs and in load-following situations in islanded mode.
