  • Decentralized Control for Parallel Operation of Distributed Generation Inverters in Microgrids Using Resistive Output Impedance

    In this paper, a novel wireless load-sharing controller for islanding parallel inverters in an AC-distributed system is proposed. The paper explores the resistive output impedance of the parallel-connected inverters in an island microgrid. The control loops are devised and analyzed taking into account the special nature of a low voltage microgrid, in which the line impedance is mainly resistive and the distance between the inverters makes the control intercommunication between them difficult. In contrast with the conventional droop control method, the proposed controller uses resistive output impedance, and as a result a different control law is obtained. The controller is implemented by using a DSP board, which only uses local measurements of the unit, thus increasing the modularity, reliability, and flexibility of the distributed system. Experimental results are provided from two 6 kVA inverters connected in parallel, showing the features of the proposed wireless control

  • Fossil fuel and biomass fed distributed generation and utility plants: Analysis of energy and environmental performance indicators

    Power electronics and control play a key role in the distributed generation plants, particularly if they are part of complex systems where end-users, electricity distribution and transmission, utility power plants, bidirectional flow of power and information, renewable sources and environmental impacts are strictly integrated. A deep knowledge of the performances of these systems, compared with those of utility plants, is the base for implementing their control and monitoring with the goal of optimizing the energy and environmental performances. The increase of utility plants efficiency, up to 60% in large combined cycle power plants (GTCC), may jeopardize the advantages associated with distributed generation. This can occur even in the case of cogeneration, when heat recovery is not thoroughly designed and exploited. A comparison between distributed generation and utility plants based on a few key performance indicators is reported under different working conditions and fuels.

Since more and more inverter based distributed generation systems (I-DG) will replace most of the synchronous generators new requirements have to be identified in order to keep the existing quality in voltage and frequency.

  • Performance evaluation of sinusoidal and Space Vector Pulse-Width-Modulation for power quality enhancement in distributed generation systems

    The installation of Distributed Generation (DG) systems leads to harmonic distortions, unequal power sharing among the host feeders and system voltage and frequency imbalances. These power quality issues arise mostly when main grid interacts with DG systems or when they operate in islanded mode. Henceforth, with a two-step approach as this paper presents, proper frequency and voltage control of DG systems is acquired to solve these problems. In the first step, a comparison in terms of harmonic content is performed between Sinusoidal Pulse-Width-Modulation (SPWM) and Space Vector Pulse-Width- Modulation (SVPWM) techniques for interface inverters in distributed configuration. Secondly, an improved droop control method is implemented in order to regulate voltage and frequency as a function of customized droop equations. Validation of design method and parametric analysis of results is provided with the help of simulations.

  • A new islanding detection approach using wavelet packet transform for wind-based distributed generation

    Methods for detecting island in an electric power system are classified as active, passive or hybrid. For certain applications, passive methods are sometimes favored over other detection methods because they are cheap, simple and do not affect the power quality of the electric power system. This paper introduces an islanding detection approach based on wavelet packet transform using only local measurements of voltage and current at the point of common coupling. A new index named node rate of change of power defined in the time- frequency domain is introduced to quantify the rate of change of output power of the distributed generation (DG). The new index has been evaluated in seven different case studies including island case. The presented results have shown that the new index is effectively capable of determining the island case from other types of disturbances.

  • Short circuit calculation in networks with a high share of inverter based distributed generation

    Conventional short circuit calculation programs do not consider the actual behavior of inverter based distributed generation (DG). Several techniques to consider them have been suggested in literature and are briefly described in this paper. A tool is developed with the combination of these techniques. The approach uses standard short circuit calculation tools and accommodates inverter based DG with different fault responses. The approach is evaluated and compared against other techniques using a realistic test distribution network model.

  • An effective anti-islanding method for multi-inverter-based distributed generation

    Islanding protection is a necessity for grid-connected inverters in distributed generation systems. Diversified anti-islanding algorithms have been developed for the single-unit grid-connected inverter system in the past few decades. However, few literatures demonstrate a clear verification of the effectiveness under the multi-inverter circumstance. The objective of this paper is to present a novel anti-islanding algorithm based on the negative sequence disturbance for multiple three-phase grid-connected inverters without non-detection zone. The performance of the proposed method based on time- domain simulation in the MATLAB/Simulink environment is presented under the IEEE Std.1547 anti-islanding test configuration. And the results verify the effectives of the proposed method for multi-inverter systems.
