Abstract

Smart-grids have several advantages over conventional electrical
energy distribution systems. On the one hand, they enable smart
measuring and control of both, consumption and energy
production. On the other hand, they contribute to the integration
of renewable energy sources, distributed energy resources and
demand response. However, some aspects of smart-grids have
not been solved, such as the control of all the components. In
this study, some control equipments have been analyzed to
establish the control system architecture. As a result of the tests
shown in this paper, a suitable design of the control system of a
micro-grid is proposed. The power meters, quality analyzers and
programmable logic controller to be used in the micro-grid
control system have been tested to ensure their suitability for this
purpose.
