"This research studies the capacity sizing, control strategies, and performance evaluation of the microgrids with hybrid renewable sources for manufacturing end use customers towards a distributed sustainable energy system paradigm. Microgrid technology has been widely investigated and applied in commercial and residential sector, while for manufacturers, it has been less explored and utilized. To fill the gap, the dissertation first proposes a cost-effective sizing model to identify the capacities as well as control strategies of the components in microgrids considering a commonly used energy tariff, i.e., Time of Use (TOU). Then, the sizing model is extended by integrating control strategies for both microgrid components and manufacturing systems considering a typical demand response program, i.e., Critical Peak Pricing (CPP), where customer side load adjustment is highly encouraged. After that, the control strategy of the manufacturers in an overgeneration mitigation-oriented demand response program is further investigated based on the identified optimal size of onsite microgrid to minimize the energy cost. Later, the system is analyzed from its higher level of abstraction where a prosumer community is developed by aggregating such manufacturers with onsite microgrid system. To enhance the reliable energy operation in the community, the performance of the microgrid is investigated through the estimation of the lifetime of Battery Energy Storage System (BESS), a critical design parameter the architecture. Finally, conclusions are presented and future research on real-time joint control strategy for both microgrids and manufacturing systems and identification as well as optimal energy management of the controllable loads in manufacturing system are discussed"--Abstract, page iii.
