Intelligent Monitoring and Control of Microgrid


An intelligent strategy for monitoring and control of a grid independent microgrid having an energy storage module, wind induction generator, and loads is presented in this paper. The goal for intelligent monitoring and control of the microgrid is to have real and reactive power control while regulating line voltage and frequency and thus maximizing the use of renewable resources. First, a conventional proportional integral controller is implemented for PQ control and then a fuzzy logic based controller is implemented. The fuzzy logic controller has two inputs and two outputs and a first order Sugeno inference engine is used for the fuzzy rules. Simulation results are provided for wind variation and load variation showing that the proposed controller performs better than the PI controller.
