Poster presentation at International Renewable Energy Storage Conference (IRES) 2015
Microgrids are an emerging aggregation form in low-voltage electrical grids. Along with the integration of renewable energies in electric grids, technical, economic and ecologic problems arise. However, as microgrids are not wide-spread within the electric grid, values to assess the benefit of a microgrid (key performance indicators, KPI) in the above-mentioned fields have not been researched thoroughly. This paper provides an overview on the calculation and evaluation of those KPIs for a given microgrid, including: Resulting values for the microgrid are discussed in depth and, where applicable, set to relation to system values of similar energy systems.
