Impact of BEVs on Resiliency of Microgrids with Renewables
One of the main purposes of implementing microgrids is to provide local power for loads. Renewable energy generation units are built adjacent to consumers. These units and battery electric vehicles (BEVs) can be used to reduce the need for power from concentrated power generation units (i.e. enormous conventional power plants). This work proposes a method to enhance resiliency of microgrids through survivability. Survivability in this context is to minimize load shed for the duration that the microgrid is in island mode following a disturbance event. During island operation, microgrid loads are prioritized as critical and non-critical loads, respectively. This task is formulated as a non-linear programming problem which tries to maximze the total load served of the microgrid.
