Abstract

With an evolution in technological and industrial sector, there is an increase in utilization of electrical energy. However, the rapid exhaustion of conventional fossil fuels which led to rapid development in the field of renewable energy for the production of electricity along with distributed energy resources. Micro grid can provide a better backup solution along with main grid for providing continuous power. There is very niche awareness and knowledge about the Micro grid system. In this paper, efforts are made to create an awareness and encourage people to adopt and implementation of Micro grid system for reliable, sustainable and environment friendly power space. This paper involves a case study on installation of a Micro grid system at Adas (18.7789°N, 76.2306° E), Dist-Beed, and Maharashtra. The main issue with location is that as this area comes under drought prone area and receives the annual rainfall of just around 692mm, which results that nearby ParliVaijnath Thermal Plant is shut-off due to scarcity of water and faces the load shedding for an average of 6 hrs/day. The paper provides feasibility in terms of reliability, economics and sustainability using Micro grid system. The analysis suggests that grid integrated Micro grid system is more viable solution to such kind of areas where availability of conventional sources of energy is the main constraint. If grid integrated Micro grid systems are implemented in such rural areas, it would become versatile option for energy through local power generation with help of renewable energy sources. So, the whole study concludes that the implementation of Grid Integrated micro grid system will be more feasible to be implemented in the rural areas at village-level with most reliable, affordable expenses with zero fuel cost and small pay-back period for 24/7 power flow. Thus, the implementation of grid integrated Micro grid system provides a better option for local power generation and it also contributes substantially towards sustainability, reliability and environment.
