Architectures and Hierarchical Control

The promise of the smart grid is round the corner. However research and society cannot wait for the approval of many standards and grid codes, especially when these codes can restrict more the independence of the electricity users from the suppliers. In this sense, the demand side management can be satisfied by using local energy storage and generation systems, thus performing small grids or microgrids. Microgrids should able to locally solve energy problems, hence increase flexibility and flexibility.

Power electronics plays an important role to achieve this revolutionary technology. We can imagine the future grid as a number of interconnected microgrids in which every user is responsible for the generation and storage part of the energy that is consumed, and to share the energy with the neighbors.
