This manuscript presents a robust tracking (servomechanism) controller for linear time-invariant (LTI) islanded (autonomous, isolated) microgrid voltage control. The studied microgrid (MG) consists of many distributed energy resources (DERs) units, each using a voltage-sourced converter (VSC) for the interface. The optimal tracker design uses the ellipsoidal approximation to the invariant sets. The MG system is decomposed into different subsystems (DERs). Each subsystem is affected by the rest of the system that is considered as a disturbance to be rejected by the controller. The proposed tracker (state feedback integral control) rejects bounded external disturbances by minimizing the invariant ellipsoids of the MG dynamics. A condition to design decentralized controllers is derived in the form of linear matrix inequalities. The proposed controller is characterized by rapid transient response, and zero error in the steady state. A robustness analysis of the control strategy (against load changes, load unbalances, etc.) is carried out. A MATLAB/SimPowerSystems (R2017b, MathWorks, Natick, MA, USA) simulation of the case study confirm the robustness of the proposed controller.
