(Micro)grids & Power Quality

Grid

A power grid is a network of synchronized power providers and consumers that are connected by transmission and distribution lines and operated by one or more control centers.

A microgrid is a local energy grid with control capability, which means it can disconnect from the traditional grid and operate autonomously. A microgrid can be powered by distributed generators, batteries, and/or renewable resources.

Power Quality includes excitation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy to the local end users. The quality of the power is extremely important to maintain continuity of processes and costs.
