Abstract

Circulating currents in a DC micro-primary grid should be reduced to improve load distribution among sources and voltage management. Several centralized and decentralized control schemes have been proposed in the literature as remedies for the problem. A high bandwidth communication link can assist centralized design in achieving the desired result, but a single point of failure can negatively impact performance and reliability. Due to their ignorance of the parallel-connected sources, microgrids in decentralized designs cannot offer simultaneous current sharing and voltage management. This study solves the challenge with a distributed control system for parallel connected sources in a dc micro-grid.
