Understanding Micro Grids

The jury is out on the definition of a micro grid

The definition of a micro grid changes depending on the project constraints in which it is used. The term gets thrown around with different context and a new definition almost every time I hear it. I’ve seen the differing points of view and it is about time for a consensus. We all need to be on the same page using the same terminology.

Key Characteristics of a Micro Grid:

  1. Connecting to the traditional grid is optional.
  2. Resiliency, reliability, and sustainability are the core responsibilities.
  3. Backup for all system loads, not just the critical loads.
  4. Modern technology is needed to optimize energy production and usage.
