    Abstract

    This paper presents an adaptive frequency remote control of an islanded autonomous grid equipped with a 5.5 kW wind generator, 7.2 kW solar panels, and 58 kWh energy storage. The islanded grid is located at VTT premises in Finland. The grid was controlled remotely from Cyprus using a communication protocol. The ultimate aim of the work described in this paper is to control and balance the generation and demand in the islanded grid through direct load management based on a single point measurement of the electric frequency.
