To improve the energy resilience of military microgrids, Alejandro Dominguez-Garcia and his research team at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have developed numerous control algorithms for microgrid applications that rely on a distributed decision-making approach under this new ESTCP project. Unlike centralized counterparts, a control architecture based on a distributed platform enables managing and processing real-time measurement data locally at control nodes. This allows the development of algorithmic solutions that are far more scalable, resulting in a reduction of communication requirements and enhancing resiliency of the system to node misbehavior due to cyberattacks or hardware failures.
