Microgrids are low-voltage (LV) distribution networks comprising various distributed generators (DGs), storage devices, and controllable loads that can operate either interconnected or isolated from the main distribution grid as a controlled entity. This paper describes the operation of a central controller for microgrids. The controller aims to optimize(More)
Restructuring of power markets has helped in the penetration of Distributed Generation (DG) in the electricity networks. The Mircogrid, a LV network that usually operates interconnected with the main MV network but in case of emergency can run autonomously, is a suggested structure for the co-ordination of the DG sources. In this study, the control(More)
The intermittent nature of the wind creates significant uncertainty in the operation of power systems with increased wind power penetration. Considerable efforts have been made for the accurate prediction of the wind power using either statistical or physical models. In this paper, a method based on Artificial Neural Network (ANN) is proposed in order to(More)
