Testing of a distributed generation system with a virtual grid
Goyal, Sachin, Ghosh, Arindam, & Ledwich, Gerard (2010) Testing of a distributed generation system with a virtual grid. In IEEE Power Engineering General Meeting (IEEE PES 2010), 25-29 July 2010, Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The paper proposes a solution for testing of a physical distributed generation system (DGs) along with a computer simulated network. The computer simulated network is referred as the virtual grid in this paper. Integration of DG with the virtual grid provides broad area of testing of power supplying capability and dynamic performance of a DG. It is shown that a DG can supply a part of load power while keeping Point of Common Coupling (PCC) voltage magnitude constant. To represent the actual load, a universal load along with power regenerative capability is designed with the help of voltage source converter (VSC) that mimics the load characteristic. The overall performance of the proposed scheme is verified using computer simulation studies.
