Pulling It All Together-microgrid diagram

diagram of a microgrid

In a power microgrid, a central command center controls where the system draws power from, how much is distributed to residential or commercial customers, where it stores excess power, and whether some power is fed back to the outside power grid. The microgrid still functions and provides power if the connection between it and the outside grid is interrupted.
