    Abstract

    This paper presents a reliable micro-grid for residential community with modified control techniques to achieve enhanced operation during grid connected, islanded and resynchronization mode. The proposed micro-grid is a combination of solar photo-voltaic (PV), battery storage system and locally distributed DG systems with residential local loads. A modified power control technique is developed such that, local load reactive power demand, harmonic currents and load unbalance is compensated by respective residential local DG. However, active power demand of all local residential load is shared between the micro-grid and respective local DG. This control technique also achieves constant active power loading on the micro-grid by supporting additional active power local load demand of respective residential DG. Hence, proposed modified power control technique achieves transient free operation of the micro-grid during residential load disturbances. An additional modified control technique is also developed to achieve seamless transition of micro-grid between grid connected mode and islanded mode. The dynamic performance of this micro-grid during grid connected, islanded and re-synchronization mode under linear and non-linear load variations is verified using real time simulator (RTS).
