Abstract: Nowadays, human are dealing with at least one electronic appliance in their everyday life for communicating, doing household chores, entertainment and many more. Even simple lives of villagers also require fundamental electricity for lighting up their house at night and listening to their favorite programme on radio. So, needless to say there are more and more demands for electricity supply together with population and economic growth around the globe. Fortunately, there has been found a smart way to great use of free and clean natural resources such as wind and sunlight around us for supplementary electricity generation. With this “Smart Grid” technologies evolution, significant federal funding can be expected as long term investment in renewable energy and control research works and implementing projects for wider use of green electricity to fulfill the higher demands. The fundamental concept of a “Microgrid” can be defined in such a way that distributed energy resources are processed to become reliable alternative supply for locally connected loads either in parallel to or islanded from the existing national power grid. To go more in-depth, implementing a Microgrid needs to consider several factors; Compatibility, Stability, Autonomy, Efficiency, Scalability and Economics which are discussed in this report. Together with designing and Matlab Simulations, better understanding and insightful thoughts on how a Micro-grid performs its jobs are received from readers and next initiative to build up their own are expected as return.
