Presented as part of the College's Summer Webinar Series
Grid modernization raises increasing interest in power grid resiliency enhancement. A distribution grid, as the active and most significant ‘grid-edge’ for distributed energy resource integration, plays a crucial role to bridge upstream power systems and end-users. A resilient and stable distribution system is urgently needed to modernize electric grids and ensure operational continuity. As active entities nested in distribution systems, power electronics dominated microgrids have been widely deployed. Particularly, networked and dynamic microgrids have been studied to advance grid resiliency enhancement at critical infrastructures. In this talk, we will introduce some solutions to enhancing grid resiliency, focusing on the architecture, control, and implementation of power electronics intensive power systems.
