Microgrids Integrating renewable energy sources - (RES) to improve reliability

by David G. Hart, Steven A. Kunsman, ABB Power Systems Automation & Communications, North America and Brad Luyster, ABB Power Systems – Microgrids, North America

With the deployment of renewable energy sources and grid automation, the next logical progression is to allow these sources to provide for local load when power from the traditional grid is not available. For example, while the real cost in damages from Super Storm Sandy have yet to be fully understood, estimates already place it at around $50 billion, affecting more than seven million utility customers with some outages lasting 11 days.


Power. Flexible. Easergy.
