A virtual synchronous generator control method in microgrid with vehicle-to-grid system

Van Tan Nguyen, Hong Viet Phuong Nguyen, Thi Bich Thanh Truong, Quang Vu Truong


The inertia in power systems plays a very important role in stabilizing the power system. With the growth of distributed generation (DG)/renewable energy source (RES) penetration in the power grid, there has been a concern about the lack of inertia in the power system. One of the solutions to solve the problem is to use the Virtual Synchronous Generator (VSG) control method. For energy storage, the Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) storage system can replace the traditional hybrid energy storage which consists of batteries and supercapacitors. This application will be implemented in Microgrid. The article will focus on simulating the Microgrid with the V2G system and solar energy as a renewable energy source, the inverters are controlled by the method of VSG control. The models will be simulated and the results will be shown on MATLAB/SIMULINK software.
