Dynamic Phasor Modeling of a Hybrid AC/DC Microgrid

Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 10639)


The dynamic phasor (DP) model of a hybrid AC/DC microgird is proposed in this paper. This hybrid microgrid consists of an interlinking converter (ILC), wind turbine (WT) system, photovoltaic (PV) system and energy storage (ES) system, and can operate under either grid-connected mode or autonomous mode. A comprehensive definition of the dynamic phasor is given to make the developed model more compact and the physical meaning more clear. The developed microgrid model is validated by comparing with a detailed model considering switch operations in Matlab/Simulink. By comparison, the DP model turns out to consume much less time and have a satisfactory accuracy under various disturbances.
