Recently cooperative control has been proposed as a dynamic and self organizing control mechanism for distributed generators (DGs) control in the smart grids. Cooperative control has the advantage that it can properly manage and coordinate a high penetration of DGs to satisfy multiple power objectives. In a smart grid, the communication topology is restricted by the geographical distribution of the system and the range of the communication devices. This paper provides the process to optimally design the cooperative control, utilizing an available communication network. The effect of the communication frequency and topology on the convergence rate and the dynamic performance of the system is also presented. Finally, the simulation results for a case of study are provided.
