access icon free Distributed finite-time cooperative control of droop-controlled microgrids under switching topology

As a small-scale power system, microgrid (MG) will lose support from the main grid if it switches to islanded mode because of the pre-planned scheduling or unplanned disturbances. To synchronise the frequency and voltage to their reference values, a secondary frequency and voltage cooperative control is proposed in this study. The proposed secondary control can synchronise the frequency and voltage to their reference values in finite time and achieve the active power sharing simultaneously. Moreover, it is suitable for switching communication architecture. The MG is considered as multi-agent systems and the system stability is proved by multi-agent theory and finite-time stability theory. A simulation system is established in Matlab/Simulink environment, and the results show the effectiveness of the proposed controller.
