AbstractAs non-renewable resources of energy depletes at an alarming rate, the energy market strives to find alternatives that are renewable and environmentally sustainable in the long run. The conventional power generation system burns a massive amount of coal on a daily basis to provide energy for customers. This contributes to worldwide pollution and consequently harms the environment. Besides the irreversible harmful effects inflicted on the planet, fuels are a non-renewable resource and thus it is vital that renewable resources are considered for power generation. As far as military applications are concerned, reliability and security of available energy are highly sought after. This paper reviews the concept of microgrid technology, an off-grid energy generation system used by military forces in efforts to face the energy crisis that is beginning to gain momentum in today's world. It also discusses the key features of the recently developed smart grid. � 2018 IEEE.
