The Operational Experience of Sendai Microgrid in the Aftermath of the Devastating Earthquake: A Case Study

  The Operational Experience of Sendai Microgrid in the Aftermath

  of the Devastating Earthquake: A Case Study

 

  The Sendai Microgrid was initially designed in 2004 as a test bed for a demonstration project of the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).
After the study was completed in 2008, the microgrid system has continued in operation under the management of NTT Facilities, Inc.

On March 11, 2011, the devastating Great East Japan Earthquake hit the Tohoku district, inflicting catastrophic damage on the district’s energy supply system for a number of days.
Despite the extreme devastation, the Sendai Microgrid resumed supplying power and heat to customers after a short interruption, proving its effectiveness.

This case study is an analysis of the operations of the Sendai Microgrid in the aftermath of the earthquake and will provide useful lessons for all microgrid operators and users around the world.
