A Novel Approach in Defining Interoperability Standards for Microgrids

Authors(1) :-Javeed Ahmed Khan

Future Microgrids are developed for integration with upcoming Smart Cities. The microgrids developed are decentralized and are expected to operate in islanding mode than grid-connected mode. The increased reliability and power quality requirement of an islanded microgrid requires advanced planning. In the process of planning, the interoperability of devices and components of a microgrid play a crucial role. The devices and components of different companies are presently developed and manufactured in a non-standardized environment. This paper presents a novel approach in defining interoperability standards for microgrids through experimentation at Humber College, School of Applied Technology. Experimentation is carried out using the embedded controller architecture classification into three groups (Von-neumann, Harvard and Super-Harvard Architectures) and further sub classified into CISC and RISC architecture. Presently, the experimentation was completed on simulation and emulation level on a generic computer architecture. The same experimentation will be validated in the lab in-future.
