OVERVIEW
Microgrid topologies offer several advantages over large traditional grids including increased resiliency and easier integration of distributed renewables. However, some challenges such as maintaining scalability and interoperability between diffferent vendors and connectivity protocol standards are challenges that have to be overcome in order to reap the benefits of such a system.
Customers are likely to be vendors from the energy sector, especially those who specialize in renewable and microgrid technology.
A microgrid testbed is being developed that focuses on open technology that can help monitor and control a microgrid at the edge. Some of the solutions being tested include a programmable switch/recloser for protection scheme, Preventive Maintenance Research and open, flexible, field-deployable equipment for monitoring, algorithm design, and communication to a head-end system.
