Abstract

In this paper, the performance of a middle voltage (MV) distributed power generation system under a Model Predictive Control (MPC) strategy is tested. The designed controller receives process information from an state estimation unit, composed of a Weighted Least-Squares strategy (WLS). The contribution is focused on performing the frequency and voltage regulation of the system, considering moreover the dynamic behavior of storage units and capacitors, and feeding back information to the control system considering the transmission delay. The results show that the closed loop based on the proposed strategy achieves the required performance and can be useful to be applied to more complex systems such as low-voltage (LV) generation systems.
