Operational security support for power and energy systems: networked microgrids as the solution

Power blackouts are a serious problem, especially for developing economies. Microgrids are an attractive solution for facilitating the most efficient utilization of renewable energies and have enormous potential to enhance both the reliability of supply and the security of the connected power system. This project will develop an innovative coordinated operation methodology for networking multiple microgrids, optimally controlling these together with all associated power system components, including generator units, capacitor banks and on-load tap changers. The methodology intends to prevent overflow and overvoltage caused by current grid contingencies.
