Abstract

In this letter we propose a new distributed control scheme, achieving current sharing and average voltage regulation in direct current (dc) microgrids. The considered dc microgrid is composed of several distributed generation units (DGUs) interconnected through resistiveinductive power lines. Each DGU includes a generic energy source that supplies a local current load through a dc-dc buck converter. The proposed distributed control scheme achieves current sharing and average voltage regulation, independently of the initial condition of the controlled microgrid. Moreover, the proposed solution requires only measurements of the generated currents, and is independent of the microgrid parameters and the topology of the used communication network, facilitating plug-and-play capabilities. Global convergence to a desired steady state is proven and simulations indicate a good performance.
