    Abstract: Micro-Grid (MG) is a small-scale power network associated with Renewable Energy Sources (RES), Energy Storage System (ESS) and local critical loads. MGs can either be connected to the main grid or operate stand-alone. Due to variable nature of RES such as Photovoltaic (PV) solar cells, ESS become necessary to maintain reliability of power supply to... Show More

    Abstract: A new method of current control strategy for grid connected photovoltaic (PV) system is presented in this paper. The connection of photovoltaic system with the grid is a difficult task as the solar irradiation is a nonlinear quantity. The objective of this work is to develop a model of the photovoltaic system with maximum power point tracking (MPPT... Show More
