Abstract

The microgrid containing a large amount of high frequency power switches and nonlinear components has put forward high requirements for power system real-time simulation technology. Multivalued coefficient prestorage can reduce the calculation steps in real-time simulation. In order to reduce the storage pressure of the multivalued coefficients, the whole network is divided into multiple subnetworks that can be simulated in parallel, and only the parameters for computing input variables and internal variables are prestored. The multiport hybrid equivalent is performed to reduce the number of simultaneous network equations. The input variables are tied to state variables of the circuit so that the iterative calculation is limited to the local network. The devised methodology is validated through simulation of a low-voltage microgrid on a field programmable gate array (FPGA)-based real-time digital simulation (FRTDS) platform at a 5 μs time step. Comparison with a power systems computer aided design (PSCAD)/electromagnetic transients including DC (EMTDC) model shows that the proposed method is effective. View Full-Text
