A virtual power plant is a cluster of distributed generation installations (such as microchip, wind-turbines, small hydro, back-up genets etc.) which are collectively run by a central control entity. The concerted operational mode shall result in an extra benefit as to deliver peak load electricity or load following power at short notice. Bangladesh is facing acute power crisis like other developing countries. As we have limited resources we have to think economically.VPP is playing good role

To solve the power crisis in CUET & to supply power to the main grid a small virtual power plant is designed .Whole CUET is divided into three regions for designing purpose. By using MATLAB simulink environment machine characteristic curves are derived & cost is calculated. In Centralized System Topology, DG units are controlled by control coordination centre which is located right in the figure. The load signals are transmitted to CCC where it is processed by means of logic algorithm [1] . In decentralized system topology, each DG unit is locally controlled by local controller (LC) [3] . To perform an integrated system, the local controllers are connected/linked to each other forming ring network architecture through communication to allow signals exchange [1] .The communication system will be SCADA [4] .
