Tri-generation systems are regarded as one of the most efficient technologies to save energy consumption and reduce carbon emission. In this research, a smart grid using renewable energy and energy storage unit is studied as the electrical part of a tri-generation system. This study aims at satisfying the dynamic demand of a household and discusses the control strategy. The controlling method is divided into two situations, namely with renewable energy source and without renewable energy source, and both the processes are presented in detail. The controlling strategy is proven to be useful for the operation of this smart grid system.
