A dynamical model of a microturbine and its control systems has been set up and developed in the Simulink© environment. In particular, the model of the electrical part, not available in the literature, was conceived by the authors. Experimental parameters from an actual cogeneration plant have been implemented in the model, allowing the accurate analysis of the dynamic behaviour of the system, with particular reference to the connection with the grid. Finally, some transient conditions are simulated in different operation modes and the results are discussed.
