Abstract

Diesel generator is considered as one of the most significant distributed generation units in microgrid which has commonly a governor system for frequency control. However, due to large time constant of its fuel injection system; its reaction in load variation is almost undesirable and sometimes causes noticeable frequency drop. In this study, a flywheel energy storage system (FESS) is introduced, studied and coordinated with a diesel generator emulator for frequency control in a real fabricated microgrid model. A new frequency control strategy is proposed for FESS based on the high-pass filtering. In this strategy, FESS compensates the high-frequency parts of the required power according to its speed, while the diesel generator provides other low-frequency parts. The simulation and experimental results demonstrate clearly the performance of the proposed strategy.
