Abstract

This work addresses the electric grid planning process in general and the outage response in particular. Using the advance control architecture of microgrids, we show that by planning for demand reduction in the microgrids, certain outages can be mitigated, without the need of additional local generation or islanding. We describe the load models, their outage behavior and present the results in a case study.
