Contribution of an Energy Storage System for Stabilizing a Microgrid during Islanded Operation

  • Published : 2009.06.30


In this paper, the cooperative control scheme of micro sources and an ESS (Energy Storage System) during islanded operation is presented and evaluated by a simulation study. The ESS handles the frequency and voltage as a primary control. Then, the secondary regulation control returns the cur-rent power output of ESS into a pre-planned value. The simulation's results show that the proposed co-operative control scheme can regulate the frequency and voltage and reduce the consumption of the stored energy of ESS.
