The stability and monitoring of AC microgrids (AC MG) are greatly influenced by gathering sufficient and precise information. Since installing several sensors on AC MGs is costly and increases AC MG ripple, integrating a minimum number of cost-effective sensors is preferred. In this paper, a joint-estimating augmented-Kalman filter (KF) to estimate the current of the AC MG and unknown time-varying loads from the noisy measurement of the AC bus voltage is developed. The proposed approach also provides smooth and noise-less information from the measured voltage. The method presented in this paper has less complexity to handle and as a robust approach, it would be capable of dealing with uncertainties due to the load, which can be linear, nonlinear, or unbalanced. The joint-estimating augmented-KF outputs can be then utilized in the monitoring, fault detection, and control design purposes. The developed framework is tested on an AC MG supplying a one time-varying load and numerical results verify the applicability and accuracy of the developed technique to estimate the load and filter currents.
