About this book

This book offers a detailed guide to the design and simulation of basic control methods applied to microgrids in various operating modes, using MATLAB® Simulink® software. It includes discussions on the performance of each configuration, as well as the advantages and limitations of the droop control method.

The content is organised didactically, with a level of mathematical and scientific rigour suitable for undergraduate and graduate programmes, as well as for industry professionals. The use of MATLAB® Simulink® software facilitates the learning process with regard to modelling and simulating power electronic converters at the interface of distributed energy resource (DER) systems. The book also features a wealth of illustrations, schematics, and simulation results.

Given its scope, it will greatly benefit undergraduate and graduate students in the fields of electrical and electronics engineering, as well as professionals working in microgrid design and implementation.
