American Made Solar Prize Webinar
Starting from an IEEE 4-node test feeder, we will build, test, and demonstrate a simple microgrid model consisting of an energy storage module (ESM), a photovoltaic (PV) power source, natural gas genset, variable load with load profile, and other components. Protection will also be discussed. A simple microgrid controller monitors the system, ensuring grid-tied/islanding operation, and other system-level functions. A test framework (Typhoon Test IDE) is shown as an effective tool for simple and scalable functional testing of DER and system-wide behavior.
