A microgrid  is a decentralized group of electricity sources and loads that normally operates connected to and synchronous with the traditional wide area synchronous grid macrogrid , but can also disconnect to "island mode" and function autonomously as physical or economic conditions dictate.

The future electricity network must be flexible, accessible, reliable, and economic according to the worldwide smartgrid initiative. The application of individual distributed energy resources as microgeneration can cause problems such as local voltage rise, the potential to exceed thermal limits of certain lines and transformers, islanding and have high capital cost [ 3 ]. Microgrid can be a better solution for these problems. The choice of a distributed generator mainly depends on the climate and topology of the region. These topics are beyond the scope of this review.
Future of Microgrids with Distributed Generation and Electric Vehicles
Distributed generation refers to a variety of technologies that generate electricity at or near where it will be used, such as solar panels and combined heat and power. Distributed generation may serve a single structure, such as a home or business, or it may be part of a microgrid a smaller grid that is also tied into the larger electricity delivery system , such as at a major industrial facility, a military base, or a large college campus. The use of distributed generation units in the United States has increased for a variety of reasons, including:. Distributed generation systems are subject to a different mix of local, state, and federal policies, regulations, and markets compared with centralized generation. As policies and incentives vary widely from one place to another, the financial attractiveness of a distributed generation project also varies. As electric utilities integrate information and communications technologies to modernize electricity delivery systems , there may be opportunities to reliably and cost-effectively increase the use of distributed generation. Distributed energy technologies may cause some negative environmental issues at the end of their useful life when they are replaced or removed.

Microgrids are a growing segment of the energy industry, representing a paradigm shift from remote central station power plants toward more localized, distributed generation—especially in cities, communities and campuses. The power to isolate from the larger grid makes microgrids resilient, and the ability to conduct flexible, parallel operations permits delivery of services that make the grid more competitive. Microgrids provide efficient, low-cost, clean energy, enhance local resiliency, and improve the operation and stability of the regional electric grid. They provide dynamic responsiveness unprecedented for an energy resource.
