Microgrids with installation of converter controlled-based generations (CCGs), i.e. renewable energy source (RES) and battery energy storage system (BESS), may lead to a lack of system inertia. Moreover, CCG modes dominated by the CCGs may result in new control issues. Accordingly, optimal-fixed controllers designed at an operating point may not be sufficient to deal with the nonlinearity of such microgrids. This paper presents an adaptive robust control strategy of a future microgrid considering the CCG modes. Without requiring any microgrid parameters, the proposed control using a subspace-based state-space identification is used to 1) monitor microgrid changes along with moving window, 2) identify microgrid model, 3) assess stability indices, and 4) robustly design controllers of RES and BESS. Characteristic and sensitivity of the new CCG modes are analyzed. Effectiveness of the proposed control method is verified in a microgrid with 100% CCGs under various RES outputs and load patterns.
