Microgrid controllers are a key component of a microgrid. The microgrid controller is used to optimize, manage, and control the DERs within the microgrid boundary as well as controlling how the microgrid as a whole communicates with the larger grid to provide grid services. The content in this document was developed by Southern Company to compile use cases and functionalities for microgrid controllers and outline how they can be operated to meet different needs.
