Microgrids: A Relaying Perspective

A microgrid is a cluster of utility customers, power generation, and switchgear that can electrically isolate itself from the rest of the grid, all while maintaining supply of power to its load. Like many developments in electrical engineering today, one can attribute the rise of microgrids from research and development to mainstream to the developments in computer and communication technology. Microgrids can potentially provide substantial benefit not only to utility equipment, but also to rate paying customers.

Microgrids: A Relaying Perspective

Ultimately, microgrids stand to influence the way we think about distribution systems. They will not only improve the reliability of customer loads, but also critical loads like hospitals, schools, and military bases.
