Microgrids are part of an infrastructure aiming at producing electrical power locally from many small energy sources. The integration of renewables with variable power production, use of economical energy storage for supporting various grid functions, application of power electronics for advanced control and requirements from sensitive loads pose several operational challenges to a microgrid. <br />This presentation will portray few of the challenges in microgrid and available solutions. Some of the research topics in this field will be discussed.<br /><br /><span><span><span><strong><img src="/en/departments/e2/calendar/PublishingImages/Ritwik_Majumder_170px.jpg" class="chalmersPosition-FloatRight" alt="" style="margin:5px" /></strong></span></span></span><strong>Short Bio:</strong><br />Ritwik Majumder is working in ABB Corporate Research, Sweden from 2010, and now as Princi<span><span><strong></strong></span></span>pal Scientist in Electrical Systems Department.
