A microgrid is a self-sustained system , consisting of interconnected distributed energy resources and loads under a common control scheme that can operate in in independent mode during grid failures. Energy resources may be renewables like solar and wind, diesel generators, gas turbines, battery storage, electric vehicles and demand response. Microgrids may serve applications ranging from industrial & Commercial, Campus/Institutional, Communities and Military, in an autonomous or grid connected manner

Autonomous: Off-grid systems where generated power is consumed to meet the needs of the local demand. Partly autonomous systems are also covered

Grid Connected: Generate and distribute power within the local grid and import/export power from a utility source

A Microgrid control system is responsible for the coordinated control of all microgrid energy resources. It consists of the central and peripheral Microgrid controllers, data loggers and communication equipment required, measuring instruments as well as a SCADA/EMS server for proper system management.
