    This paper investigates the application of Supervisory Control of Discrete Event System (SCDES) to the management and control of a Custom Power Park (CPP). The heterogeneous nature of upcoming devices and equipment in CPP require advanced control methods to ensure the integrity and reliability under different operational states. A solution to achieve appropriate controllability, while avoiding complexity, is to sub-divide the control problem based on event-triggered dynamics where the occurrence of specific events could change the state of the system. This idea is employed to formulate the problem of coordination of the devices in a CPP and develop a systematic method to design a supervisory control based on the theory of SCDES. Three modular supervisors are synthesized using the TCT software and simulated using the Simulink. The proposed methodology could be applied to several control problems in microgrids.
