Intelligent Distributed Autonomous Power Systems (IDAPS): A Framework for a Resilient and Environmentally-friendly Microgrid (09/2007 – 09/2008)

The objective of this exploratory research proposal is to build a broad framework of an Intelligent Distributed Autonomous Power System (IDAPS) at a conceptual level. The proposed concept takes into account the availability of cleaner, efficient and cost effective small-scale generation sources, as well as advanced IP-based communication technologies in building a resilient electric power system with demand-side participation.
