Abstract: In islanded microgrids (MGs), the reactive power cannot be shared proportionally among distributed generators (DGs) with conventional droop control, due to the mismatch in feeder impedances. For the purpose of proportional reactive power sharing, a multiagent system (MAS)-based distributed control model for droop-controlled MGs is proposed. The proposed control model consists of two layers, where the bottom layer is the electrical distribution MG, while the top layer is a communication network composed of agents. Moreover, agents on the communication network exchange the information acquired from DGs with neighbors, and calculate set points for DGs they connect to, according to the control laws. Furthermore, a theorem is demonstrated, which yields a systematic method to derive the control laws from a given communication network. Finally, three cases are carried out to test the performance of the control model, in which the uncertainty of intermittent DGs, variations in load demands, as well as impacts of time delays are considered. The simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the control model in proportional reactive power sharing, and the plug and play capability of the control model is also verified.
