In this study, we present a management simulation of microgrid composed of waste (EfW) plant, solar power and wind energy plants as renewable energy sources and a Pumped Hydroelectric Energy Storage (PHES) as distributed storage unit. In this manner, simulations were carried out for different production and consumption scenarios by using the simulation models developed in Matlab environment and the results are discussed. Strong and weak renewable energy generation states are considered at the presence and absence of PHES. Thus, we analyze energy dispatching rates of microgrid from transmission grid for the both presence and absence of PHES. Also, the dependence of microgrid to transmission grid is evaluated. A conditional flow control algorithm is employed for management algorithm.
