In this paper a model of a Distributed Generation network is presented, consisting of two electronically interfaced units. The scope is to implement and evaluate various control methods and strategies in the concept of smart grid integration. Several scenarios of transient disturbances are simulated in order to analyze the influence of the controller on the power grid and the local loads. Transient responses are calculated and the overall behavior of the system is monitored to provide an in depth understanding of the influence of various disturbances in the system in order to design more efficient control strategies utilizing the benefits of a smart grid.
