Traditionally the rank of Commodore is granted to the leader of a task force or squadron who is of equal rank to other officers within the group in order to establish chain of command.

So if you have a squadron of 12 ships where the commanding officers consist of 3 Captains, 4 Commanders and 5 Lt. Commanders you would give one Captain the temporary rank of Commodore to denote the fact that his orders supersede those of the other captains.
