Abstract

This paper presents the concept for an ad-hoc self-organized microgrid based on moveable and renewable energy sources and fully distributed coordination between intelligent power routing nodes. The primary goal of the proposed architecture is to build an adaptive, scalable, and reliable system to support energy provisioning with limited infrastructural planning. Our vision focuses on two use-case scenarios: promote electrification and energy sharing in isolated rural areas, and support emergency response crews in disaster relief situations. Both scenarios rely on the deployment of an autonomous microgrid based on movable generators and renewable sources which will dynamically reconfigure itself and adapt to changes with minimal user intervention.
