Experimental validation of optimal power flow control in hybrid AC/DC microgrids

This paper presents an experimental validation of a real-time optimal power flow control method for hybrid AC/DC microgrids. The control uses voltage sensitivity coefficients, computed analytically, to include grid constraints and converter modes in the optimization problem formulation. This allows flexible control of power flow between the AC and DC systems, avoiding violations and providing grid support. The method is tested on a real hybrid microgrid with distributed resources, showing effective redirection of power flow while meeting time constraints critical for real-time operation.
