Passive Droop Control in a Decentralized 12 DC Energy Access Microgrid With Lead Acid Batteries
Presenter: Hannes Kirchhoff, Michael Schmid, Peter Adelmann and Kai Strunz
| In this paper, a passive droop controlled 12 V DC energy access microgrid that utilizes natural droop control features is analyzed. The reliability of this control approach is investigated upon in a 23 simulation with eight houses. Four SHS feed into this microgrid and four household systems with batteries but without panels take energy out of the system. The control of the 12 V DC grid can be achieved without any central control elements which represent a technology option for the implementation of bottom-up microgrid development path.
