Asynchronous microgrid, PCS converter, controller design, hardware test-bed
Asynchronous microgrid with PCS converter is a new microgrid concept with potentially better performance compared to conventional microgrids. In this paper, a PCS converter controller is designed and tested fully considering different grid requirements including steady-state operation, mode transitions, faults, etc. The control architecture and controller functions for grid requirements are presented. The developed controller is tested and verified on a scaled converter based hardware test-bed.
