DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Customer Micro Grids Market Outlook to 2020 - Market Analysis by Geography, Application, Competitive Landscape and Key Company Information - Growth Trends and Forecasts" report to their offering.
Customer microgrids or true microgrids are self-governed, and usually downstream of a single point of common coupling (PCC). They are particularly easy to imagine because they fit neatly into our current technology and regulatory structure. Hence, the market for these is expected to grow considerably over the next decade.
A MicroGrid is a semiautonomous grouping of generating sources and end-use sinks that are placed and operated for the benefit of its members, which may be one utility, a grouping of several sites, or dispersed sites that nonetheless operate in a coordinated fashion. The supply sources may include reciprocating engine generator sets, microturbines, fuel cells, photovoltaic and other small-scale renewable generators, storage devices, and controllable end-use loads.
All controlled sources and sinks are interconnected in a manner that enables devices to perform the MicroGrid control functions unnecessary for traditional DER. For example, the energy balance of the system must be maintained by dispatch, and non-critical loads might be curtailed or shed during times of energy shortfall or high costs.
While capable of operating independently of the macrogrid, the MicroGrid usually functions interconnected, purchasing energy and ancillary services from the macrogrid as economic, and potentially selling back at times.
