Abstract The existing power management schemes for interlinked AC-DC microgrids have several operational drawbacks. Some of the existing control schemes are designed with the main objective of sharing power among the interlinked microgrids based on their loading conditions, while other schemes regulate the voltage of the interlinked microgrids without considering the specific loading conditions. However, the existing schemes cannot achieve both objectives efficiently. To address these issues, an autonomous power management scheme is proposed, which explicitly considers the specific loading condition of the DC microgrid before importing power from the interlinked AC microgrid. This strategy enables voltage regulation in the DC microgrid, and also reduces the number of converters in operation. The proposed scheme is fully autonomous while it retains the plug-nplay features for generators and tie-converters. The performance of the proposed control scheme has been validated under different operating scenarios. The results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme in managing the power deficit in the DC microgrid efficiently and autonomously while maintaining the better voltage regulation in the DC microgrid.
