Microgrids in the United States
In this book, several benefits of microgrids have been presented. For instance, they offer numerous potential benefits to customers, including improvement in reliability by providing portion of power to the grid, operating as an islanded microgrid of the electric power system during a utility outage and solving power quality problems like the reduction of total harmonic distortion in loads. There are also utility benefits such as solving overload problems by removing load from the system and by allowing a part of the system to island intentionally. The USA knows these advantages; therefore, microgrid implementation has evolved in the last few years.
