A microgrid is a small group of power generation assets and energy storage equipment, generating power independently in order to meet local energy needs. A microgrid has the capability to island itself and is connected to the main grid at a single point. An energy storage system is a technology used to store the surplus power that can be supplied later when required. Energy storage systems play a diverse role in microgrids. When renewables are used in the microgrid they serve as a voltage source, smoothing the intermittent power flow. For utilities, it helps in peak hour shaving, volt ampere reactive (VAR) services, and black start.
