Microgrids are inherently complex because they require integrating a variety of distributed generation sources into one electrical system. This is further complicated by implementing microgrid functionality such as islanding, peak shaving and frequency regulation. So how do utilities and municipalities decide when and why to embark on a complex microgrid project? This panel discussion will explore the key determining factors behind pursuing microgrid projects. Three utility engineering leaders will share their experience and decision-making process for implementing microgrids in their systems, addressing key solution benefits, design challenges, and common trends.
