Abstract: In the present era, electrical power system is evolving to an inverter-dominated system from a synchronous machine-based system, with the hybrid power systems (HPS) and renewable energy generators (REGs) increasing penetration. These inverters dominated HPS have no revolving body, therefore, diminishing the overall grid inertia. Such a low system inertia could create issues for HPS with REG (HPSREG) such as system instability and lack of resilience under disturbances. A control strategy, therefore, is required in order to manage this task besides benefitting from the full potential of the REGs. A virtual inertia control for an HPSREG system built with the principle of fractional order (FO) by incorporation of proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controller and fuzzy logic controller (FLC) has been projected. It is utilized by adding virtual inertia into HPSREG system control loop and referred to as FO based fuzzy PID controller for this study. Simulation outcomes states that the advocated FO based fuzzy PID controller has superior control in frequency of the system under frequent load variations. It has been noted that the proposed control scheme exhibits improved efficiency in maintaining specific reference frequency and power tracking as well as disturbance diminution than optimal classic and FO-based controller. It has been validated that, the developed controller effectively delivers preferred frequency and power provision to a low-inertia HPSREG system against high load demand perturbation. In the presented paper, analysis based on sensitivity has also been performed and it has been found that the HPSREG system’s is not effected by system parameter and load variations. © 2021 by the authors.
