Evaluating Microgrid Control with Simscape Electrical


In this webinar, MathWorks and Hydro-Québec will discuss how modeling and simulation support the development of microgrid systems that contain renewable energy and energy storage. Through a worked example of a representative grid-connected microgrid, both grid-forming and grid-following operation will be considered. Various microgrid control modes will be demonstrated, including active- and reactive-power control, droop control, imbalance compensation and solar curtailment. Operation of the control modes will be demonstrated through appropriate test harnesses, that allow efficient evaluation of system response to be performed over a broad operational envelope.

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
