In this paper, we propose a new distributed passivity-based control strategy for Direct Current (DC) microgrids. The considered DC microgrid includes Distributed Generation Units (DGUs) sharing power through resistive-inductive distribution lines. Each DGU is composed of a generic DC energy source that supplies an unknown load through a DC-DC buck converter. The proposed control scheme exploits a communication network, the topology of which can differ from the topology of the physical electrical network, in order to achieve proportional (fair) current sharing using a consensus-like algorithm. Moreover, the proposed distributed control scheme regulates the average value of the network voltages towards the corresponding desired reference, independently of the initial condition of the controlled microgrid. Convergence to a desired steady state is proven and satisfactorily assessed in simulations.

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a new distributed passivity-based control strategy for Direct Current (DC) microgrids. The considered DC microgrid includes Distributed Generation Units (DGUs) sharing power through resistive-inductive distribution lines. Each DGU is composed of a generic DC energy source that supplies an unknown load through a DC-DC buck converter. The proposed control scheme exploits a communication network, the topology of which can differ from the topology of the physical electrical network, in order to achieve proportional (fair) current sharing using a consensus-like algorithm. Moreover, the proposed distributed control scheme regulates the average value of the network voltages towards the corresponding desired reference, independently of the initial condition of the controlled microgrid. Convergence to a desired steady state is proven and satisfactorily assessed in simulations.
