Sandia National Laboratories (SNL) and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) invite your participation in the first annual Microgrid Systems Symposium. This event will focus uniquely on several technical challenges in commercial and military microgrids; addressing their design, system analysis and grid integration. The symposium aims to cover the state of the art in design and operational tools, methods and research for secure and resilient microgrids. It will address specific grid integration and control issues when operating in grid connected, and in islanded, modes. The EPRI-Sandia Symposium on Secure and Resilient Microgrids will be of particular interest to facility, utility and design engineers and researchers.
With the rapid and exciting growth in the microgrid industry, professionals are faced with the challenge of selecting appropriate models and toolsets for microgrid analysis, design and evaluation and applying these models and tools in a disciplined, transparent and effective manner. In this workshop we will initiate a technical dialogue and exchange of information about the available models, tools and practices which can foster and sustain a community of practice for microgrids, and identify lessons learned and research gaps that need to be addressed to further improve microgrid designs and evaluations in the future.
