  1. This paper makes use of electric vehicles (EVs) that are simultaneously connected to the Photovoltaic Cells (PV) and the power grid. In micro-grids, batteries of the electric vehicles (EVs) used as a source of power to feed the power grid in the peak demands of electricity. EVs can help regulation of the power grid by storing excess solar energy and returning it to the grid during high demand hours. This paper proposes a new architecture of micro-grids by using a rooftop solar system, Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs), grid connected inverters, a boost converter, a bidirectional half-bridge converter, output filter, including L, LC, or LCL, and transformers. The main parts of this micro-grid are illustrated and modeled, as well as a simulation of their operation. In addition, simulation results explore the charging and discharging scenarios of the BEVs.

  2. This paper proposes a unified distributed secondary control for the grid-forming (GFM) and grid-feeding (GFE) converters in DC microgrids. An optimization problem is formulated for the secondary control and the objective function considers regulating the global average of the GFM and GFE converter output voltages and proportional current sharing among all GFM and GFE converters. A unified distributed control is then designed to generate voltage and current references respectively for GFM and GFE converters based on the formulated optimization problem. The dynamic model of the DC microgrid under the proposed control is also developed, and steady-state analysis is performed to show that the proposed distributed control can achieve the control objectives in steady state. The performance of the proposed control is validated through real-time simulations in OPAL-RT on an 8-DG DC microgrid system.
