Abstract

The strategic positioning of new grid components may enhance the resiliency of a city to electricity outages, thus improve the quality of life that meets residents’ needs. However, the cost and resilience associated to the grid are the two conflicting goals. This paper presents a user-interface-based Overall Grid Modelling (OGM) tool that allows city-level stakeholders to manipulate and control the tool for grid planning purposes. The OGM tool provides stakeholders the demonstration of cost and resilience needed to analyse the impact of altering the grid components, and through the normal and islanded operation (the penetration of microgrid).
