Abstract

This paper presents a control scheme for microgrids with passive loads. The existing control techniques for distributed generation systems are designed to operate either in the grid-connected or in the islanded mode. In the grid-connected mode of operation, a currentcontrolled scheme based on d-q variables is used for the regulation of real and reactive powers of the converter. In the islanded mode of operation, the converter is controlled in the voltage-controlled mode. This paper deals with the modeling of both control schemes. Furthermore, reconnection from the islanded mode to the grid-connected mode based on the use of adequate Phase-Locked Loops (PLLs) has been demonstrated.
