In this paper, an adaptive control strategy is proposed for the inverters of renewable energy source (RES) to simultaneously control the load voltage, grid current and the amount of instantaneous injected power to the grid in the presence of grid voltage distortions and nonlinearity of load current. In the proposed control strategy, the power quality of the local load can be settled based on the operator command. In order to implement the proposed control strategy, a cascaded framework of power, voltage and current control has been introduced. An efficient and fast response controller is introduced for the voltage loop, aiming to compensate of harmonics without any complex calculations. The proposed cascade framework is simulated with nonlinear load and non-ideal grid conditions. The simulation results show the effectiveness of the proposed control strategy to not only supply the local load on an appropriate voltage and current quality but also maintaining the amount of injected power at the operator’s desired level.
