DISTRIBUTECH Presentation: Developing Community-Scale, Resilient Microgrids

Today’s utilities lack a generic and cost-effective approach to plan and operate resilient community microgrids. During extreme events, both accurate network model information and the availability of communication are typically constrained, which directly degrade the effectiveness of service restoration. 1This presentation shows how a “cell” of interconnected PV, energy storage, and buildings, can be transformed into a microgrid that can operate independently using its own resources. Using self-organizing map-based resilience quantification, Lyapunov-based stability analysis, and enhanced DER optimization, the project, called REORG, aims to transform centralized grid operations into time-varying cellular operations that can be coordinated into a microgrid. Most importantly, the chosen configuration can adapt to time-varying weather conditions, propagation of faults, and communication damages, to achieve fast and robust bottom-up service restoration by clustering cells.
