Modelling and Simulation of Microgrid during Islanding and Optimization of Distributed Energy Resources

Authors(1) :-Bhavya Bansal

This paper presents a simulation and mathematical model of Microgrid in Autonomous mode. A Microgrid consist of renewable energy sources such as Solar PV system , Fuel cell stack system , Battery energy storage system (BESS) and load. Comparative study of sinusoidal PWM and space vector modulation is done and SVPWM is preferred in controlling of inverter due to its advantage over SPWM. Optimization of DERíS is done to utilize the resources at most keeping the cost in mind.
