Traditional power generation and consumption are undergoing major transformation. One of the tendencies is to integrate microgrid into the distribution network with high penetration of renewable energy resources. A synchronous generator and a PV farm supply power to the system’s AC and DC sides, respectively. A DC/DC boost converter with a maximum power point tracking (MPPT) function is implemented to maximize the energy generation from the PV farm. In the existing system a model predictive power and voltage control (MPPVC) method is developed for the AC/DC interlinking converter this has a drawback in smooth grid synchronization. But in the proposed system a sliding mode controller is used to link the AC bus with the DC bus while regulating the system voltage and frequency and it ensures smooth power transfer between the DC and AC sub grids. Meanwhile, smooth grid synchronization and connection can be achieved. Proposed constant frequency sliding mode control retains the advantages of good dynamic response as in hysteresis control, better reference tracking switching frequency and less sensitivity to parameter variations and non liner loads.  From the Simulation results it is verified that the proposed topology is coordinated for power management in both AC and DC sides under critical loads with high efficiency, reliability, and robustness under both grid-connected and islanding modes.
