Summary and Info
Microgrids are the most innovative area in the electric power industry today. Future microgrids could exist as energy-balanced cells within existing power distribution grids or stand-alone power networks within small communities. A definitive presentation on all aspects of microgrids, this text examines the operation of microgrids – their control concepts and advanced architectures including multi-microgrids. It takes a logical approach to overview the purpose and the technical aspects of microgrids, discussing the social, economic and environmental benefits to power system operation. The book also presents microgrid design and control issues, including protection and explaining how to implement centralized and decentralized control strategies.Key features:original, state-of-the-art research material written by internationally respected contributors unique case studies demonstrating success stories from real-world pilot sites from Europe, the Americas, Japan and Chinaexamines market and regulatory settings for microgrids, and provides evaluation results under standard test conditionsa look to the future – technical solutions to maximize the value of distributed energy along with the principles and criteria for developing commercial and regulatory frameworks for microgridsOffering broad yet balanced coverage, this volume is an entry point to this very topical area of power delivery for electric power engineers familiar with medium and low voltage distribution systems, utility operators in microgrids, power systems researchers and academics. It is also a useful reference for system planners and operators, manufacturers and network operators, government regulators, and postgraduate power systems students.CONTRIBUTORSThomas DegnerAris DimeasAlfred EnglerNuno GilAsier Gil de MuroGuillermo Jiménez-EstévezGeorge KariniotakisGeorge KorresAndré MadureiraMeiqin MaoChris MarnayJose Miguel YarzaSatoshi MorozumiAlexander OudalovFrank van OverbeekeRodrigo Palma BehnkeJoao Abel Pecas LopesFernanda ResendeJohn RomankiewiczChristine SchwaegerlNikos SoultanisLiang TaoAntonis TsikalakisContent: Chapter 1 The Microgrids Concept (pages 1–24): Christine Schwaegerl and Liang TaoChapter 2 Microgrids Control Issues (pages 25–80): Aris Dimeas, Antonis Tsikalakis, George Kariniotakis and George KorresChapter 3 Intelligent Local Controllers (pages 81–116): Thomas Degner, Nikos Soultanis, Alfred Engler and Asier Gil de MuroChapter 4 Microgrid Protection (pages 117–164): Alexander Oudalov, Thomas Degner, Frank van Overbeeke and Jose Miguel YarzaChapter 5 Operation of Multi‐Microgrids (pages 165–205): João Abel Peças Lopes, André Madureira, Nuno Gil and Fernanda ResendeChapter 6 Pilot Sites: Success Stories and Learnt Lessons (pages 206–274): George Kariniotakis, Aris Dimeas and Frank Van Overbeeke (Sections 6.1, 6.2)Chapter 7 Quantification of Technical, Economic, Environmental and Social Benefits of Microgrid Operation (pages 275–313): Christine Schwaegerl and Liang Tao
