This paper describes a DC isolated network which is fed with Distributed Generation (DG) from photovoltaic (PV) renewable sources for supplying unbalanced AC loads. The battery energy storage bank has been connected to the DC network via DC/DC converter to control the voltage of the network and optimize the operation of the PV generation units. The PV arrays are connected to the DC network via its own DC/DC converter to ensure the required power flow. The unbalanced AC loads are connected to the DC network via its own DC/AC converter. This paper proposes a novel control strategy for storage converter which has a DC voltage droop regulator. Also a novel control system based on Park rotating frame has been proposed for DC/AC converters. In this paper, the proposed operation method is demonstrated by simulation of power transfer between PV arrays, unbalanced AC loads and battery unit. The simulation results based on PSCAD/EMTDC software show that DC isolated distribution system including PV generation systems can provide the high power quality to supplying unbalanced AC loads.

This paper presents the modeling and simulation of a proton exchange membrane fuel cell (PEMFC) generation system for off-grid and on-grid operation and configuration. A fuel cell DG system consists of a fuel cell power plant, a DC/DC converter and a DC/AC inverter. The dynamic model for fuel cell array and its power electronic interfacing are presented also a multi-input single output (MISO) DC/DC converter and its control scheme is proposed and analyzed. This DC/DC converter is capable of interfacing fuel cell arrays to the DC/AC inverter. Also the mathematical model of the inverter is obtained by using average technique. Then the novel control strategy of DC/AC inverter for different operating conditions is demonstrated. The simulation results show the effectiveness of the suggested control systems under both on-grid and off-grid operation modes.

Identification of intentional and unintentional islanding situations of dispersed generators (DGs) is one of the most important protection concerns in power systems. Considering safety and reliability problems of distribution networks, an exact diagnosis index is required to discriminate the loss of the main network from the existing parallel operation. Hence, this paper introduces a new islanding detection method for synchronous machine–based DGs. This method uses the average value of the generator frequency to calculate a new detection index. The proposed method is an effective supplement of the over/under frequency protection (OFP/UFP) system. The analytical equations and simulation results are used to assess the performance of the proposed method under various scenarios such as different types of faults, load changes and capacitor bank switching. To show the effectiveness of the proposed method, it is compared with the performance of both ROCOF and ROCOFOP methods.

This paper presents modeling, simulation and control of matrix converter (MC) for variable speed wind turbine (VSWT) system including permanent magnet synchronous generator (PMSG). At a given wind velocity, the power available from a wind turbine is a function of its shaft speed. In order to track maximum power, the MC adjusts the PMSG shaft speed.The proposed control system allowing independent control maximum power point tracking (MPPT) of generator side and regulate reactive power of grid side for the operation of the VSWT system. The MPPT is implemented by a new control system. This control system is based on control of zero d-axis current (ZDC). The ZDC control can be realized by transfer the three-phase stator current in the stationary reference frame into d-and q-axis components in the synchronous reference frame. Also this paper is presented, a novel control strategy to regulate the reactive power supplied by a variable speed wind energy conversion system. This control strategy is based on voltage oriented control (VOC). The simulation results based on Simulink/Matlab software show that the controllers can extract maximum power and regulate reactive power under varying wind velocities.

Microturbine generation system is one of the most promising and a fast growing distributed generation sources. It is used in various applications thanks to high efficiency, quick start and high reliability. Combination of the microturbine and storage system (e.g. battery bank) is desirable selection to satisfy the load requirements under all conditions and hence the battery bank can play an important role in restoring balance between source and demand. In this paper, modeling of the microturbine with battery energy storage system is presented to supply sensitive loads. Appropriate power exchange between battery and the microturbine is an essential issue so, a new control method is proposed for battery energy storage based on instantaneous value of DC-link voltage. In this new strategy, DC-link voltage as well as battery parameters (current and voltage) are used in order to produce desirable DC-DC switching. A control scheme based on voltage, current and frequency measurement is presented for the corresponding inverter. Simulations are carried out in MATLAB/Simulink software and the results show that storage along with proper control improves system reliability to supply sensitive load. The proposed configuration can be used as a remote power, emergency power and also in micro-grid.
