Abstract
Typically, a frequency droop control has been employed for active power sharing which inevitably causes the frequency deviation. In this paper, we propose an active power sharing method based on the state of charge (SOC) of battery energy storage system (BESS) instead of the frequency. In a similar concept of conventional primary and secondary frequency control, primary and secondary SOC control is developed for maintaining the frequency at the nominal value as well as the SOC at the desired level. The SOC information is assumed to be transmitted via communication infrastructure hence the communication time delay is considered. To enhance reliability, controllers of distributed generation (DG) units are designed to take account of the failure of communication system. The proposed method was modeled and simulated by MATLAB/SimPowerSystems to prove its effectiveness.
