A microgrid is a small-scale power grid that can operate independently or be integrated into a national grid. With the recent increase in distributed and renewable energy resources increasing remote or isolated loads, a customised microgrid solution is required.

The aim of this unit is to provide students with sufficient knowledge about the design and management of microgrid systems. Students will learn about the structure, type and resources required to design and operate a microgrid and still maintain standard power quality. Students will also develop power management strategies for microgrid and analyse the system.
