A group of interconnected loads and distributed energy resources.
Operate in both a grid-connected or island mode.
Generate power from both renewable and conventional sources
The earliest electricity networks were essentially microgrids before they were joined into regional and national grids.
3 Essential Components
- Locally produced energy.
- Storage system.
- Smart management system
Following are the objectives of this project
- To develop an optimized protection scheme for synchronization of voltage and frequency of variable sources connected to microgrid.
- To increase the amount of power injected by renewable sources in microgrid.
- To make the microgrid more reliable.
