Microgrid (MG) power system plays an important role to fulfill reliable and secure energy supply to critical loads of communities as well as for communities in remote area. Distributed Generation (DG) sources integrated in a MG provides numerous benefits, at the same time leads to power quality issues in the MG power distribution network. Power Quality (PQ) issue arises due to the integration of an intermittent nature of Renewable Energy (RE) sources with advanced Power Electronics (PE) converter technology. Also, presence of non-linear and unbalancing loads in MG seems to affect PQ of the energy supply in power distribution network. In this paper, PQ impacts like; power variation, voltage variation, Total Harmonic Distortion (THD), and Unbalance voltage level have been analysed in Low Voltage (LV) distribution network of typical MG power system model. In this study, development of MG model and PQ impact analysis through simulation has been done in PSS-Sincal software environment. Analysis results from the study can be used as a guideline for developing a real and independent MG power system with improved PQ conditions.
