Microgrid Architecture for Integration of Renewable Energy Sources To Derive Optimum Power – Problems and Issues

Authors(2) :-Prof. D. V. Avasthi, Shiwani Kumari

This work reviews problems and issues relating to the integration of DERs in a Micro-grid system in the islanded and grid connected mode. Issues relating to the deployment, integration architecture and optimization of renewable energy resources to obtain clean, reliable and abundant electricity at an affordable cost to the consumers are studied. Useful information relating to the IEEE standards for DER integration is presented. An overview of the Government of India Schemes for providing technical and financial support to the Micro-grid development in rural India is also included.
