Abstract

Power quality is one of the major issues in electrical grids due to the extended use of power electronics, renewable energy generation, and nonlinear electronic loads. Usually, the elements of the microgrid are interfaced with power converters which are finally responsible for the power quality levels in the microgrid. For this reason, control of power converters becomes a relevant topic in microgrids. This chapter introduces the main aspects of power quality in microgrids and the basic principles of operation of MPC applied to power converters. The two main MPC methods for power converters, Continuous Control Set MPC (CCS-MPC), and Finite Control Set MPC (FCS-MPC) are described and their application to a Voltage Source Inverter (VSI) is shown in order to demonstrate their capabilities. Finally, an MPC-based algorithm to enhance the power quality in microgrids in presence of nonlinear and unbalanced loads is introduced. It works in both modes, islanded and grid-connected, providing the capability of fast transition between modes when required.
