A Review on Optimization of DC Micro Grid

Saroja Kumar Dash, Ramswarup Rewani


Renewable energy are being incorporated into power networks to ensure reliable and inexpensive electricity for the public and industrial sectors, while also addressing ecological consequences originating from traditional energy sources. However, including sustainable energy sources is a must. Energy in outdated electrical systems can create additional hazards and concerns, such as supply security and base load. Climatic affects, energy capacity, and so on. Recent micro grid research and development has demonstrated that Smart grids (the use of smart sensors) manage micro grids that are supplied by sustainable power and regulated by smart grids with an intelligent energy management system, can provide more dependable and efficient energy systems at a lower cost in an efficient manner.
