Abstract

Hi-tech scenario and the ecological compression are the key point to drive the intervention of the renewable in the distribution system. In the perspective of complex power system planners, the transient performance of the microgrid is the main concern. For that purpose, various fault cases are explored in order to examine the microgrid transient performance when subjected to accidental events. In this work, the microgrid is modelled with two distributed generations (DGs) tied with a converter separately. With this intention, droop control strategy is adopted for the microsources to examine the microgrid performance during the symmetrical and unsymmetrical fault events. The ability of the control strategy adopted in this work and its effectiveness are evaluated through Matlab/Simulink platform.
