Microturbine generation system is one of the most promising and a fast growing distributed generation sources. It is used in various applications thanks to high efficiency, quick start and high reliability. Combination of the microturbine and storage system (e.g. battery bank) is desirable selection to satisfy the load requirements under all conditions and hence the battery bank can play an important role in restoring balance between source and demand. In this paper, modelling of the microturbine with battery energy storage system is presented to supply sensitive loads. Appropriate power exchange between battery and the microturbine is an essential issue so, a new control method is proposed for battery energy storage based on instantaneous value of DC-link voltage. In this new strategy, DC-link voltage as well as battery parameters (current and voltage) are used in order to produce desirable DC-DC switching. A control scheme based on voltage, current and frequency measurement is presented for the corresponding inverter. Simulations are carried out in MATLAB/Simulink software and the results show that storage along with proper control improves system reliability to supply sensitive load. The proposed configuration can be used as a remote power, emergency power and also in micro-grid.
