In recent years, consumer demand, energy consumption rates, and control requirements have increased. This necessitates the control of electrical systems remotely with communication system by advanced technologies which have distributed energy resources. Therefore, transforming the existing electrical grid into the smart grid requires remote control for the development of more efficient, more convenient and more reliable systems and its structures are being researched. In this thesis, communication structures used in control requirements and integration of renewable electrical sources are examined. Then, micro grid system model is designed which is used with power line communication infrastructure, distributed energy resources, and electric vehicles system and the overall system is simulated by Matlab Simulink. Photovoltaics technology is integrated as distributed resources and the simulation results are examined for the quality of transmitted energy in different situations of the micro grid. Besides, the applicability of the distributed resources considering power quality is observed when placed near to non-linear load buses. At the same time, the increased power of distributed resources has improved both the system's voltage and its power quality indices.
