This letter proposes a fully decentralized approach to economic dispatch in microgrids with a novel communication-less strategy. It is aimed to overcome the limitations on strong dependency of center node and nodal communication in the conventional approaches. Comparative case studies based on a 14-bus microgrid demonstrate that the proposed approach can achieve a global consensus in a mesh network and the overall communication burden can be significantly reduced.
