Distributed Control and Cyber Security Issues in Microgrids presents a thorough treatment of distributed control methods and cyber security issues for power system researchers and engineers. With the help of mathematical tools, this reference gives a deep understanding of microgrids and new research directions, addressing emerging concepts, methodologies and applications of monitoring, control and protection in smart microgrids with large-scale renewables. With the integration of more distributed or aggregated renewables and the wide utilization of power electronic devices, the smart microgrid is facing new stability and security challenges.
- Includes global case studies to demonstrate distributed control success stories
- Offers detailed illustrations and flowcharts to address challenges and technical solutions for those working in power systems in utilities and industry
- Showcases new challenges faced in the stability and security of smart microgrids
