Microgrid is an efficient solution to integraterenewable energy sources (RES) into power systems. Inorder to deal with the intermittent characteristics of therenewable energy based distributed generation (DG) units,a fuzzy-logic based coordinated control strategy of thebattery energy storage system (BESS) and dispatchableDG units is proposed in this paper for the microgridmanagement system (MMS). In the proposed coordinatedcontrol strategy, the BESS is used to mitigate the activepower exchange at the point of common coupling of themicrogrid for the grid-connected operation, and is used forthe frequency control for the island operation. Theeffectiveness of the proposed control strategy was verifiedby case studies using DIgSILENT/PowerFactroy.
