Due to the rapid development of power electronics technology and modernization of DC based loads, DC microgrids (DCMG) are becoming most attractive solution in terms of their increased efficiency and high power quality. However they face certain challenges like intermittency of renewable energy sources, limitations in dynamic behaviour of storage systems and various stability issues during islanding. Thus it is mandatory to select the DCMG components properly with a robust control strategy for power converters in order to maintain power balance despite of variation in source and load power in order maintain the system power quality. In this work, a DC bus signalling based decentralized control strategy is proposed for a PV based DCMG, which eliminates the risk associated with DC bus voltage fluctuation. Fuel cell is as an auxiliary power source along with solar PV and storage devices, reduces the possibility of black out and helps to increase system reliability. The proposed control strategy has been validated through MATLAB/Simulink based simulation studies for variable weather condition and load demand on DCMG system.
