Integrations, Control, and Interconnection of Microgrids/Minigrids

Grid Interconnection protocols for largely dispersed mini-grids/microgrids for electrification of rural India (INDNOR MultiGrid Project final workshop)


Hybrid event
Add to calendar

Minigrids are heterogeneous in nature as they can include different types of energy sources and generators technologies. The dynamic operational characteristics varies from one minigrids to another; for example, a minigrid with power electronic converter interfaced renewable energy resources will behave differently compared with a minigrid with rotating generators for the same transient disturbance or change in operating condition. The integration of two heterogeneous minigrids is a challenging task especially if each of the two minigrids is serving an appreciable number of local loads. Hence, it is critical to define protocols for connecting and disconnecting minigrids without affecting the stability and voltage quality of the grid.

In this workshop, the research activities and results from the Indian-Norway bilateral project MultiGrid will be presented. In addition, technical as well as regulatory aspects will be discussed in relation to synchronizing of multiple minigrids with one another and with the main grid.
