© 2017 IEEE. This research addresses the control problem of microgrids and presents a robust distributed secondary control system for voltage regulation of an islanded microgrid with droop-controlled and inverter-based distributed generators (DGs). A consensus-based distributed control approach is proposed to restore the voltage and frequency of the islanded microgrid to the reference values for all DGs within a very short time. The proposed method is flexible to system topology variations which AIDS the plug-and-play operation of microgrid. An autonomous micogrid test system consisting of four DGs is constructed in MATLAB using SimPowerSystem Toolbox to test the proposed design method, and the simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy. The performance of the proposed controller is shown through several test case studies.
