Tech-IN is aimed at overcoming the challenges associated with the large-scale deployment of renewable-based microgrids (MGs) in the hazardous environment of the Indonesian Islands that is prone to severe natural disasters (NDs). Tech-IN’s goal is twofold: it will cope with two main concerns in Indonesia: (i) to increase the renewable energy while reducing the fossil fuel dependence, and (ii) bringing electricity to remote places and Islands. Secondly, it will provide high levels of resiliency and availability of electricity supply in front of natural disasters.
Tech-IN will develop new MG architectures with high levels of resiliency and scalability. Three layers of granularity will be developed. The potential of MGs deployment will be investigated for grid-connected and islanded applications by considering two case studies: Lombok and Medang Islands. Moreover, based on the techno-socio-economic analysis of the Indonesian energy sector, control architectures, and reconfigurable energy management systems will be developed for all three levels of granularity.
The findings of this project will provide worthwhile information for Indonesian energy authorities, the transmission grid operator (PLN), market players, and potential investors. Communicating the results of the research with the Indonesian policymakers and operators will help them to assess energy trends and energy policy directions.
