Due to the global demand for energy saving and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, utilization of renewable energy sources have increased in electricity networks. The negative aspects of this technology are very complex and not well known which affect reliability and robustness of the grids. Microgrids based on renewable energy sources have gained significant popularity, due to the major benefits it has to offer for solving the increasing energy demand. Harmonic distortion in microgrids caused by the non-linear loads is an essential topic of study necessary for the better understanding of power quality impacts in microgrids. The various control techniques utilized to curtail the power quality impacts on micro grids are reviewed in this paper. Also, Optimization based control techniques utilized for power quality improvement in microgrids is discussed in this review.
