Abstract

In this paper, a distributed multiagent based algorithm is proposed to achieve SoC balance for DES in the DC microgrid by means of voltage scheduling. Reference voltage given is adjusted instead of droop gain. Dynamic average consensus algorithm is explored in each agent to get the required information for scheduling voltage autonomously. State-space analysis on a single energy storage unit and simulation verification shows that the proposed method has two advantages. Firstly, modifying the reference voltage given has less impact on system stability compared to gain scheduling. Secondly, by adopting multiagent methodology, the proposed distributed control has less communication dependence and more reliable during communication topology changes.
