University campuses offer a perfect setting in which to establish a microgrid and maximize its operational benefits. The university setting also offers a unique collection of intellectual resources. In addition to improving operational efficiency, lowering operating costs, and reducing the campus's overall carbon footprint, a university microgrid is an ideal laboratory in which to conduct research to advance modern power system operation and integration of distributed renewable generation for the power delivery industry as a whole. It also provides opportunities for new graduate student research and learning.
