    The blackout experiences have demonstrated the vulnerability of the interconnected electric power system to grid failure caused by natural disasters and unexpected phenomena. Changes in customer needs, additional stress due to liberalized electricity markets, and a high degree of dependency of today's society on sophisticated technological services also intensify the burden on traditional electric...

    Distributed energy resources including distributed generation and distributed storage are sources of energy located near local loads and can provide a variety of benefits including improved reliability if they are properly operated in the electrical distribution system. Microgrids are systems that have at least one distributed energy resource and associated loads and can form intentional islands i... View full abstract»

    The environmental and economical benefits of the microgrid and consequently its acceptability and degree of proliferation in the utility power industry, are primarily determined by the envisioned controller capabilities and the operational features. Depending on the type and depth of penetration of distributed energy resource (DER) units, load characteristics and power quality constraints, and mar... View full abstract»

    Technically, microgrids are emerging as an outgrowth of dispersed on-site and embedded generation via the application of emerging technologies, especially power electronic interfaces and modern controls, and similarly, microgrid economic and regulatory analysis is generally rooted in the same approaches used to evaluate distributed energy resources (DER). As in the economics of many traditional on... View full abstract»

    In this paper the technical constraints imposed by the growing needs of distributed generation, DER, and demanding PQR requirements, the microgrid concept is evolving toward a potentially versatile solution. The growing body of technical publications includes analytical modeling that defines the theoretical basis; computer simulation studies that verify operation and performance: and laboratory-sc...

    This issue's history article offers eyewitness accounts of two important events, 125 years apart, in the history of electric utility service. Thomas Edison's famous Pearl Street direct current (dc) generating station and underground distribution system in New York City went into service on 4 September 1882 and ended its service on 14 November 2007.
