Abstract

This paper presents, a fault simulation on a microgrid consisting of a wind turbine, a solar panel and fuel cell. The power produced by different sources is combined on the same DC bus and converted to AC form using a three phase inverter in order to transfer it to 3-phase AC load. The system takes some precautions against some undesired situations. In case of a fault, the failed section of microgrid has been seperated from the grid rapidly using breakers located at the output side of each energy sources and inverters.
