Abstract

Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) are increasingly becoming a key player in meeting customer power demand in many countries today. Distributed Generation (DG) interconnection of DERs in both grid connected and microgrid modes allows the coordination of DERs in a manner such that they can supply both active power and ancillary services when required. This paper presents a strategy for coordinated control of solar PV generators with maximum power point tracking (MPPT) and battery storage control to provide voltage (Coordinated Voltage Control) or frequency support during microgrid operation. The control strategies show potent coordination between MPPT control, inverter voltage control and battery storage operations as well as efficacious microgrid operation. Also, the battery energy storage is connected directly to the DC link which eliminates the need for another inverter. The simulation were carried out using MATLAB/SIMULINK.
