Modeling, analysis and control techniques of microgrids for stability and resilience enhancement

About this Research Topic

The microgrid is a small-scale distributed power system integrating the power electronics-fed renewable generators, local loads and energy storage devices. This enhances the flexibility and reliability of electricity services. Microgrids can be operated either in grid-connected mode or in islanded mode according to power system demands. The application of power electronic converters enables microgrids to fulfil important roles in various applications, but also poses new challenges on the stability and resilience of microgrids. In practical operation of microgrids, the perturbation of system parameters may cause the variation of operating point, which further affects the stability of microgrids under long-term operation. Furthermore, the thermal operating points of microgrids may be changed due to the perturbation of electro-thermal parameters and ageing impacts, which thus mitigates long-term resilience of microgrids.

This Research Topic aims to disseminate and highlight new research results and practical applications in the stability and resilience of microgrids. The traditional analysis and control methods assume that the microgrid is operated under a fixed steady-state operating point with a small range of variation, which always neglects the effects of nonlinear components and parameters variation under long-term operation. The methodologies including modeling, analysis and control strategies are important for enhancing stability and resilience of microgrids, especially for long-term operation. Prospective authors are invited to submit original contributions, survey papers, or tutorials, for review for publication in this Research Topic. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

• Modeling and analysis methods of microgrids with multiple power converters
• Novel topologies and applications for future microgrids (e.g., high-frequency microgrid, ship microgrid)
• Time-varying modeling and analysis methods of microgrids
• Small-signal and large-signal modeling and analysis methods of microgrids
• Multi-time scale analysis and control method of microgrids
• Failure mechanism and resilience analysis of microgrids
• Stability and resilience theory of microgrids
• Advanced control techniques of microgrids for stability and resilience enhancement
• Optimal operation strategies of microgrids
• Fault-tolerant operation techniques of microgrids
• Advanced seamless transfer methods of microgrids
• High-performance power converter for microgrid application


Keywords: Modelling, Stability, Control, Microgrids, Resilience
