- Simulation of isolated microgrids considering security-constraints and N-1 analysis
Several communities have limited access to the central PowerGrid grid due to its remote locations. As a result, such communities rely on off-grid power systems to receive power. However, it is essential to design resilient, secure, and reliable isolated microgrids within such rural communities. This research uses simulation models to design efficient microgrid systems considering efficiencies, Power Flows, operational limits, storage, and contingencies. This research aims to evaluate the feasibility of simulation models to test the resiliency of such systems. In addition, a simulation model can study the dynamic system behaviors within off-grid microgrid systems. We test our hypothesis using an adapted version of the standard IEEE 13 nodes distribution system modeled using Power World or HOMER Pro software.
