How does a microgrid work?
Customer interest in microgrids has increased. Why? Because of long breaks in the power supply like this
happened in New York and New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy. Microgrids are attractive to customers with a large, focused load or critical infrastructure that have special needs, not completely satisfied with the current networks. They should have increased reliability, provide service in remote areas or more widely use renewable energy sources.
Using such a combined power supply and protected power grid infrastructure, customers can avoid interruptions in the availability of energy in case almost any serious disaster or reduce the negative effect to minimum. Total investment in global Smart grids are on a sustainable and a significantly upward trajectory. Since technology is for the smarter and more sustainable networks in management are constantly improving, this is also will contribute to the development of more autonomous microgrids.
We use the term Microgrids to describe small self-balancing power grids, which have the ability separate from large networks for battery life. And then they smoothly reunite so that in case need to function as parts of a whole. These microgrids have their own own resources for generation electricity, such as public solar panels and (or) power for storing electricity, which can complement traditional supplies energy.
Why would a business choose to connect to a Microgrid?
Microgrids can drastically reduce or even completely eliminate the company’s bill from its local energy grid. However, this is only the first of the advantages that microgrids have to offer.
A microgrid – although more expensive initially – may save the business millions of dollars in expenses resulting from unforeseen down-time, such as extra labor, temporary power.
