Determining Microgrid Energy Systems Dynamic Model Inputs using a SAM Analysis


With a crumbling energy infrastructure, the need for innovative solutions towards grid modernization are imperative. Local and state governments will play a central role in the adoption and regulation of such solutions. This study takes the barriers to entry as determined by a state government and cross references them with the research being conducted in the field of microgrid evaluation through means of a State-of-the-Art matrix (SAM) analysis and integrative literature review. The results of this study indicate that some of the barriers to adoption are adequately covered in the literature while others are not. A system dynamics model is then developed from SAM inputs. These results may be used by engineering managers to formulate experiments to more effectively integrate microgrid energy systems into the national energy infrastructure.
