About this Research Topic
Electrical distribution systems are rapidly changing; in the past, they were passive networks. Nowadays, the increasing presence of distributed generation, overall from renewables, and storage systems turns them into active systems. New grid architectures and new paradigms are needed to solve many technical problems. In this context, autonomous or grid connected microgrids represent a very interesting solution allowing to increase the renewable penetration, to improve efficiency and the resilience of the main electrical systems, and contributing to a sustainable and competitive development.
This Research Topic will cover research, technology and development perspectives of this particular topic, allowing the gathering of contributions in different aspects of microgrids.
Specific subtopics include but are not limited to the following:
• AC/DC microgrids
• Design, operation and control of microgrids
• Microgrids technologies
• Modeling and optimization of microgrids
• Power electronics for microgrids
• Assessment of microgrids
• Grid following and grid forming
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
