Little Heroes in Energy: Microgrids
Are you tired of power outages? Want to know how to keep the lights on during a storm or natural disaster? Enter the world of microgrids!
Microgrids are like the superheroes of the energy world. They're small-scale power grids that can operate independently or in conjunction with the main power grid. With their power source, energy storage, and control system, microgrids can provide reliable and sustainable energy to communities and industries alike.
But what is a microgrid? A microgrid is a local electrical grid with defined electrical boundaries, acting as a single and controllable entity. Microgrids are designed to be able to generate, store, and distribute energy on their own. They do this by incorporating a variety of energy sources, such as solar panels, wind turbines, and diesel generators, as well as energy storage systems, such as batteries. These energy sources and storage systems are connected to a local network, which allows them to share energy as needed.
When energy is needed, the microgrid can draw power from its energy sources or its energy storage systems. If there is excess energy being generated, the microgrid can store it for later use. In some cases, exc
