Title: Systems and methods for regulating a microgrid

Abstract

A microgrid system includes one or more power generators configured to provide electrical energy. The microgrid system also includes a localized distribution network coupled to the one or more power generators, coupled to the one or more loads, and coupled to an external grid. The microgrid system further includes a microgrid controller configured to predict microgrid demand for the one or more loads for a predetermined period of time. The microgrid controller is also configured to receive demand information for the external grid for the predetermined period of time. The microgrid controller is further configured to determine an operation plan for the one or more power generators based on the predicted microgrid demand and the received demand information. Moreover, the microgrid controller is configured to determine a schedule to transmit electrical energy to the external grid based on the operation plan.
