Dynamic modelling, simulation and control of a commercial building microgrid

Chapter


Abstract


  • 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.
