This paper presents a new control method to regulate various parameters such as voltage, current and power of the inverter interfaced with Distributed Generation (DG) in a microgrid. Model Predictive Control (MPC) is used to control the inverter of the DG using a state-space model of the inverter based microgrid. The operation of the microgrid is tested under grid-connected and stand-alone conditions. MATLAB/Simulink is used to simulate the proposed microgrid under these two operating conditions. Simulation results show that the DG inverter can operate effectively with MPC in the microgrid to provide the desired voltage, current and power under grid-connected and stand-alone conditions.
