With the increasing penetration of distributed renewable energy (DERs), the electrical grid is experiencing, on a daily basis, rapid and massive fluctuations in power and voltage profiles. Fast and precise control strategies in realtime have played an important role to ensure that the power system operates at an optimal status. Solving real-time optimal power flow (OPF) problems while satisfying the operational constraints of the community microgrid (CMG) is considered a promising technique to control the fluctuations of renewable sources and loads. This paper adopts a new deep reinforcement learning algorithm (DRL), called Twin-Delayed Deep Deterministic Policy Gradient (TD3), to solve the real-time OPF with consideration of DERs and distributed energy storages (DESs) in the CMG. Training and testing of the algorithm are conducted on an IEEE 14-bus test system. Comparative results show the effectiveness of the proposed algorithm.
