Abstract

This chapter introduces concepts to understand, formulate, and solve a microgrid design and optimal sizing problem. First, basic concepts of energy potential assessment are introduced, in order to determine if a location is suitable for PV and wind generation systems implementation. Second, different modeling approaches are presented and the required characteristics for the optimal microgrid sizing problem are discussed. Third, basic concepts about load estimation for the design and sizing of microgrids are introduced. Fourth, the most common microgrid sizing criteria are presented and classified according to the type of analysis. Fifth, basic concepts related to multi-objective optimization are introduced and some common design approaches and optimization algorithms are presented, emphasizing into multi-objective genetic algorithms. In addition, microgrids design commercial software is reviewed. Sixth, some IEEE standards related to the design, operation, and implementation of microgrids are presented. Finally, the chapter concludes with key remarks on microgrid design and sizing problem.
