With the increasing prevalence of renewable energy sources, microgrids have risen as a heavily researched tool to help integrate these new types of generation and to improve grid reliability and resiliency. Because microgrids can disconnect from the national grid, some form of energy storage is needed to reap the primary rewards of a microgrid installation. My project focuses on simpler battery microgrid installations that could provide stability benefits to more rural, unpredictable communities. My main goal was to create a phasor domain MATLAB-Simulink simulation of a microgrid with both traditional battery storage and flywheel storage and compare their ability to stabilize a microgrid facing faults typical of a rural environment. Creating this relatively streamlined power flow model will hopefully make energy storage decisions for rural microgrid installations easier. In addition, the ubiquitous nature of MATLAB in the engineering industry will make this model widely adaptable.
