MATLAB® Modeling of a Microgrid: Towards a Vision Based on Entropy Balance
Keywords:Microgrid, Entropy, Sliding Mode Controler, Energy Efficiency, Maximum Power Point Tracking (MPPT)
A microgrid is defined as the link of consumer loads and decentralized energy assets with the ability to control the entire system as a whole. The modeling of an electromagnetic microgrid is discussed in this work to analyze energy effectiveness and entropy balance. The method computes the associated losses and simulates the electrical behavior of the components. The model is built and tested by using the MATLAB Simulink application. The system is made up of several blocks consisting of solar panels, batteries, consumer loads, and the inverter needed to connect them all. Their energy efficiency is assessed using the findings from each of these components. The system's entropy generation is also calculated to study how it relates to performance.
