  author={Estefania Planas and Jon Andreu and Jose Ignacio Garate and I{\~n}igo Mart{\'i}nez de Alegr{\'i}a and Edorta Ibarra},
Microgrids are a suitable, reliable and clean solution to integrate distributed generation into the mains grid. Microgrids can present both AC and DC distribution lines. The type of distribution conditions the performance of distribution line and implies different features, advantages and disadvantages in each case. This paper analyses, in detail, all this parameters for AC and DC microgrids in order to identify and describe the available alternatives for building and configuring a microgrid… CONTINUE READING
