Abstract

Fuel for diesel generators creates substantial logistic and safety costs for the warfighter, while the desire to reduce noise, maintenance, and emissions of generators at FOBs are pushing for a shift to renewable power generation for forward bases. We are proposing a containerized microgrid which utilizes single-axis tracking photovoltaic (PV) generation, batteries, and inverters which provide a "plug and play" generation source which meets the Army's Tactical Microgrid Standard (TMS) interface, and provides a drop-in replacement for an approximately 30kW diesel generator.
