Abstract

In order to overcome the problems which distributed generations bring to the power system, the microgrid concept is proposed. For the power quality consideration, the introduction of the static synchronous compensators and the active power filters may lead to complexity and extra cost to the system. Therefore, an appropriate control strategy for the microgrid is developed in this paper to combine the power quality improvement function to the interlinking converter. This paper investigated the performance of a commercial building based microgrid system. The proposed control strategy enables the microgrid to achieve the active power, reactive power, and harmonics compensation functions. Different scenarios are carried out through simulation based on the real case data. The simulation results show that the microgrid performs effectively with the grid under different cases.
