A Tool to Help Home Microgrids Stay Off Grid as Long as Possible

Researchers at the University of Texas San Antonio (UTSA) have developed an optimization tool for microgrids that allows homes to stay off grid as long as possible, generally using solar, storage and smart meters.

Called Power Quality of Service Optimization for Microgrids, the tool decides when to use solar or other renewable energy systems, when to store it, and when to rely on power from the grid.
