Abstract—Most of researchers have already studied and discussed the power sharing and synchronization of several generation systems connected to a unique point of common coupling (PCC) to which the loads are also connected. A high penetration rate of distributed generation systems (DGs) based on renewable energies has for logic consequence the development and setting up of networked multi-PCC microgrids. In this paper an improved droop control method for synchronization as well as active and reactive power sharing of different DGs in multiple PCC islanded microgrids is proposed while the real characteristics of the line feeders are taken into account. The simulation results confirm the feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed strategies for synchronization and interconnection of different microgrid DGs, while insuring accurate sharing of the DGs active and reactive powers.
