A microgrid is an electrical system which includes load and distributed generation that can be operated in parallel to the utility grid or as an electrical island. So the microgrids are capable of operating in two modes namely grid-connected mode or Islanded mode. Islanding condition describes the state of a microgrid when it is isolated from that of the utility grid. However the islanded operation of microgrid seeks a self generation and other essential converters and controllers for interfacing with the loads. This paper proposes building up of a Photovoltaic system for its Distributed Generation , Matrix converter and other control elements for the grid-connected and islanded operation.
