Microgrid Control – a SICAM application


Maximum security in operating microgrids

Microgrids are a reliable alternative when autonomous power supply is needed, such as on islands, or when optimizations are required for higher level grids or supply costs. With grid-connected operation, microgrids enable energy to be reliably provided from renewable sources, at both high-peak and low-peak times. They can also influence reactive power and help save money by regulating the maximum power demand or infeed. Microgrids offer high reliability and improved energy quality. And they have a further advantage: Microgrids can operate independently of the higher-level grid.


Reliable monitoring and control are the biggest challenges to stable operation of a microgrid. Microgrid Control meets these challenges.

Microgrid Control – a SICAM application: reliable control and monitoring of power grids

Microgrids provide an autonomous power supply even in the most remote regions – regardless of whether or not they are connected to the power grid. Microgrid Control has been tried and proven worldwide in the important tasks of grid monitoring and control. Microgrid Control builds on the well-known Siemens RTU product family, developed and tested in the IREN2 project in Wildpoldsried, Germany.
