The advantages of using nonsynchronous microgrids in networked systems containing densely concentrated loads, the investigation of behavior of the grid and the microgrid by comparing: the occurrence of faults, voltage reduction, and losses, in the presence and absence of the microgrid, and the benefits of the dc microgrid were tested and made evident with steady state and transient studies performed on a real distribution network in New York City.
