Microgrids are becoming popular in commercial buildings due to the
recent drive to achieve net-zero energy targets and improve energy efficiency and
reliability in building installations. The commercial building microgrids depict
unique characteristics due to generation mix and various types of loads connected to
the commercial building installations. Therefore, the commercial building microgrids
require special consideration during the operation and control stages.
Dynamic models of a microgrid enable researchers to investigate their operational
performance and control techniques before the control schemes are actually being
implemented in the microgrid system. It is essential to develop more accurate
dynamic simulation models of a microgrid in order to verify the fidelity and the
effectiveness of control schemes. This chapter presents a dynamic modelling of a
commercial building microgrid system and conducts a stability analysis of the
microgrid under various operating conditions.
