AbstractIntegration of renewable energy into power grid systems by the use of microgrid are becoming attractive to supply electricity to remote areas in all aspects like reliability, sustainability, and environmental concerns; especially for communities living far in areas where grid extension is difficult so generation of renewable energy resources like solar energy to provide reliable power supply with improved system efficiency and significant cost reduction is best way. This paper reports the ETAP model of a conventional grid connected to Microgrid system of an educational Institute. The purpose of this work is to study the prototype model which is been designed according to some standard electrical conditions. This paper also provides the readers the understanding about the selection appropriate protective equipments, proper cable sizing and electrical parameters which results in a energy efficient design. In this paper we have considered an educational Institute which is connected to 33/0.4 kV conventional grid supply and to this system a 50 kW microgrid is connected.
