In this paper, an attempt has been made to introduce a new control strategy including Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) and Diesel engine generator to control the voltage and frequency of autonomous microgrids. The proposed control strategy has multiple advantages over the recent control methods in microgrids. The proposed method applies the primary and secondary frequency control strategy, simultaneously. However the secondary voltage control scheme is obligatory. In present study, Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) has been implemented for training and validating the advanced droop control (ADC). After ADC unit training, the inverter based DG can be installed in complex microgrids consist of several DGs and loads. Simulation results indicate the effectiveness and applicability of proposed method in controlling the voltage and frequency in autonomous microgrids.
