A microgrid comprises a group of localized distributed energy resources (DERs), energy storage devices, and interconnected loads operating as a single controllable unit with respect to the conventional grid (macro-grid). A microgrid enables local electricity generation, energy storage, and power consuming devices to operate independently of the macro-grid. It can be operated either in autonomous or non-autonomous mode. If the microgrid is connected to the macro-grid, the microgrid is said to operate in a non-autonomous mode. If the microgrid is disconnected from the conventional grid, the microgrid is said to operate in an autonomous mode. In situations, wherein the power on the macro-grid is interrupted, a microgrid can supply power to the macro-grid by utilizing electricity generated locally.
