The Microgrid Research and Innovation Park will develop and demonstrate a functioning ‘grid-tied’ microgrid at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) campus in Oshawa. A 500kW Lithium ion (Li-ion) battery energy storage system, inverter system, 50kW solar PV generation and microgrid controller/optimizer will be integrated with the existing 1.6MW diesel and 2.4MW Combined Heat and Power (CHP) generation plants for this microgrid. The islanded microgrid will power first-priority critical loads during grid interruptions that are isolated from the grid until overall power is restored.
