WISE Lecture Series: Microgrid Analysis, Optimization & Implementation
In this lecture, Professor Venkatesh will detail these features such as electrical power generators, energy storage units and loads allow microgrids to disconnect from the main utility grid and operate independently. By doing this, microgrids can improve reliability of the power grid as a whole by operating in island mode when the main grid is not available. Microgrids also help increase the penetration of renewable sources of energy by locally managing generation and demand mismatches.
