Microgrids are electrical grids capable of islanded operation separate from a utility grid. These grids commonly include a high percentage of renewable energy power supplies, such as photovoltaic (PV) and wind generation. Microgrids, therefore, commonly have problems related to their low system inertia and the intrinsic limitations of power electronic sources.
During this webinar, we look at these issues and share our experiences in designing, installing, and testing successful microgrid control systems. The webinar covers the following topics:
