    Abstract

    Electricity is an essential part of our existence in present days but inconsistent supply of electricity during tropical cyclones and natural disasters or fault in grid can create a dilemma over our life style, especially for remote area or island and even for the entire nation. These problems can be addressed at the distribution level by using smart, self-controlled and resilient micro electric grid that can operate on its own as microgrid or with grid connected mode as distribution network and energized by Renewable Energy Sources (RES). Three different designs of distribution network are commonly used and modified as microgrid structure which are: radial network, ring/loop network and mesh network architecture. Each of them has serious drawbacks to work during the disaster situations especially during the tropical cyclone or even snowstorm. To overcome these situation; a novel distribution network with better control and management techniques is designed here which is intrinsically potential for the future power systems to achieve reliability, efficiency and quality power supply even during the disaster. This design is essentially inspired by natural structure of an aromatic molecule which could be applied in the grid structure that would be strong enough to withstand any unexpected situations or faults. The novel network structure is represented as an aromatic molecule, like dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT) where hexagonal benzene is the basic element for the network. This aromatic structure and the properties of the compound are used as the concept of the proposed design for the distribution network to ensure better stability and resiliency. Moreover, self-healing mechanism is embedded in the distribution system to minimize system interruptions during common faults. Finally, to maximize energy efficiency and reduce human effort, smart wireless communication system, effective control technology and switching of distributed generations (DG’s) with respect to demand and consumption have been included in this network design.
