With the advancement in distributed generation systems, Power Electronics and power semiconductor technologies, the microgrid system is considered as a promising solution to meet the growing energy demand. Super capacitor based energy storage system becomes one of the best choices for microgrid because of its high storage capacity, wide working temperature range, cost effectiveness and environmental advantages. The application of super capacitor energy storage system connected to microgrid is proposed in this paper. The proposal explored here is to address energy and carbon emission concerned global issues. The design and development of a dynamic support system for specific microgrid applications are discussed. The hardware and software design and development of a 7.8kW, singlephase converter connected to a 125V, 100Wh super capacitor bank is presented in the paper.
