A microgrid is basically the integration of small scale distributed energ y resources within a locality. Microgrids are mainly renewable energy driven with ene rgy stor- age backups. The primary motivation behind the emergence of micro grid is to have energy self-sustainability within a locality through a cost-effective a nd reliable in- frastructure. Microgrids can be installed at industrial parks, aca demic campuses, residential complexes and remote villages with or without the provisio n of utility grid connection. In the case of utility grid failure, a microgrid can continu e operation in the islanded mode serving the critical loads. During grid-connected operation, the power exchange with the utility grid can be optimized based upon the p revailing grid energy price. However, because of being a low inertia system, the d ynamics of a microgrid needs to be very carefully addressed so as to ensure a st able system op- eration. Unlike conventional power systems, system level studies are often required for a microgrid with regard to the controller parameter tuning. The particular exer- cise requires the small-signal modeling of the entire microgrid system , followed by an eigenvalue analysis and optimization. The main objective of the prese nt work is to improve the system stability through appropriate tuning of contro l parameters
