The significant technical and economic benefits associated with microgrids have led to vast efforts in expanding their penetration in electric power systems. The benefits, however, must be scrutinized and compared with the huge investment cost to justify future microgrid deployments. There are lots of studies about integrating distributed generation (DG) units into a single microgrid; but DG deployment in cooperative microgrids, which allows power exchange among interconnected microgrids, lacks… CONTINUE READING
