Distributed operation of microgrid architectures consists of energy management, power management, power electronics management, and fault detection and recovery. Centralized control of microgrids may be conceptually and practically infeasible due to questions of reliability and ownership. A Distributed Operating System architecture is proposed to manage power and computational resources within a smart microgrid, using the FREEDM system architecture as a model.
