Report Highlights

Utility or community micro-grids or milli-grids (mgrids) involve a segment of the regulated grid. There are also existing well known examples. While technically, they are not different from truegrids, they are fundamentally different from a regulatory and business model perspective, primarily because they incorporate traditional utility infrastructure.

A MicroGrid is a semiautonomous grouping of generating sources and end-use sinks that are placed and operated for the benefit of its members, which may be one utility €Å"customer,€  a grouping of several sites, or dispersed sites that nonetheless operate in a coordinated fashion. The supply sources may include reciprocating engine generator sets, microturbines, fuel cells, photovoltaic and other small-scale renewable generators, storage devices, and controllable end-use loads. All controlled sources and sinks are interconnected in a manner that enables devices to perform the MicroGrid control functions unnecessary for traditional DER. For example, the energy balance of the system must be maintained by dispatch, and non-critical loads might be curtailed or shed during times of energy shortfall or high costs. While capable of operating independently of the macrogrid, the MicroGrid usually functions interconnected, purchasing energy and ancillary services from the macrogrid as economic, and potentially selling back at times.

Three key potential features of the Micro-Grid are:

1. its design around total system energy requirements

2. Its provision of heterogeneous level of power quality and reliability to end-uses.

3. Its presentation to the macrogrid as a single controlled entity.

Most microgrids can be further described by one of three categories:

. Isolated microgrids, islands, and other remote sites, not connected to a local utility grid.

. Islandablemicrogrids that are fully interconnected and capable of both consuming and supplying grid power, but can also maintain some level of service during a utility outage.

. Non-synchronous microgrids are connected to utility power supplies, but they aren't interconnected or synchronized to the grid. Such

. Non-synchronized microgrids are capable of consuming power from the grid, but they aren't capable of supplying it.
