Enhancing the Stability of an Autonomous Microgrid using DSTATCOM
Majumder, Ritwik, Ghosh, Arindam, Ledwich, Gerard, & Zare, Firuz (2009) Enhancing the Stability of an Autonomous Microgrid using DSTATCOM. International Journal of Emerging Electric Power Systems, 10(5).
This paper proposes a method enhancing stability of an autonomous microgrid with distribution static compensator (DSTATCOM) and power sharing with multiple distributed generators (DG). It is assumed that all the DGs are connected through voltage source converter (VSC) and all connected loads are passive, making the microgrid totally inertia less. The VSCs are controlled by either state feedback or current feedback mode to achieve desired voltage-current or power outputs respectively. A modified angle droop is used for DG voltage reference generation. Power sharing ratio of the proposed droop control is established through derivation and verified by simulation results. A DSTATCOM is connected in the microgrid to provide ride through capability during power imbalance in the microgrid, thereby enhancing the system stability. This is established through extensive simulation studies using PSCAD.
