Technical Outline and Topics
Microgrids are an effective way to integrate distributed energy resources (DER), such as, solar PV systems, wind power, energy storage systems, etc. in an efficient way. Furthermore, the growing challenges related to the use of fossil fuels have made microgrid proposals based on renewable energy systems become an effective solution. However, these types of solutions have not been widely used in developing countries, such as those located in Latin America, which have a high potential for renewable energy, both solar PV, wind and thermal.
This special session aims to present research related to microgrids in Latin America. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Distributed control
- Power electronics in microgrids
- Energy management system in microgrids
- Optimal sizing and locating of distributed generation in microgrids
- Networked microgrid operation
- Grid power quality improvement
- Microgrid planning and operation
