Abstract
  Load sharing, as an important challenge in microgrids (MGs), is realized commonly via a droop control method. Conventional droop control methods are not applicable in unpredictable renewable energy sources (RESs) like photovoltaic (PV) and wind turbines (WT) because their output power depends on the ...  Read More

Abstract
  It is highly expected that partially shaded condition (PSC) occurs due to the moving clouds in a large photovoltaic (PV) generation system (PGS). Several peaks can be seen in the P-V curve of a PGS under such PSC which decreases the efficiency of conventional maximum power point tracking (MPPT) methods. ...  Read More
