Abstract

Microgrids are often made up with Hybrid Power Plants (HPPs), which include storage batteries. To enhance system efficiency, it is important to manage the batteries so as to avoid that one gets charged at other batteries' expense. To reduce costs and increase robustness, a Microgrid Controller that communicates with all the HPPs can be avoided and the droop control is often adopted for the HPPs' interface inverters. This paper proposes a method to change the droop coefficients so as to get the described target with no communication available between the HPPs. Theoretical analysis is validated through a simulation carried out on a study case.
