Title: Microgrids Research and Applications: Smart Homes, EV Charging Stations, Electrical Ships and Seaports
A microgrid is an electrical distribution network consisted of distributed generators, local loads, and energy storage systems that can operate in grid-connected or islanded modes. Different technologies are combined together, such us power converters, control, communications, optimization, and so on. This way the energy can be generated and stored near to the consumption points, improving the stability and reducing the losses produced by the large power lines. In distributed energy systems like microgrids, multi-agent systems technologies will be presented distributed control is a powerful tool for distributed.
In this talk examples of research and projects in real sites including conventional islanded systems installed in islands and rural remote areas, low-voltage distribution systems and AC and DC microgrids for residential applications and homes electrical vehicle charging stations, ships, vessels, and ferries, and seaports will be shown.
