Abstract This paper describes the development of hardware simulator for the operation analysis of DC microgrid. The hardware simulator consists of several distributed power sources such as a wind power generation, solar power and fuel cell, and two energy storages such as a supercapacitor and battery. The main controller which performs a role of energy management and state monitoring is connected with the local controller in each power source and storage through ethernet-based communication link. The developed hardware simulator can be utilized to analyze the performance DC microgrid with practical manner.
