Original Paper


The paper describes the finite state machines (FSM) approach in a microgrid’s distributed energy sources modeling. It defines FSM models for a small hydro power plant, a cogeneration unit and a photovoltaic power plant. A comparison of simulation results obtained by FSM models and purely dynamic simulations models, from an execution time point of view, is presented as well.
