    IMCP: Distributed controller for microgrids

    Engineering microgrid controllers is a challenge due to the large variety of devices, protocols, interfaces on one hand, and advanced algorithms on the other hand; all of them implemented in software. Often, the result is hand-crafted custom software that is expensive to develop and difficult to reuse for another microgrid installation. This project aims at developing and demonstrating a highly reusable ‘software platform’ that can be easily adapted to and used in various microgrid configurations. The platform will include state-of-the-art control algorithms for dispatch and transition functions, as well as software for interfacing selected power system devices (e.g. inverters).
