Illumination of Micro-grid System for the Tribes ─ Pingtung County
The Pingtung County Government planned to establish a disaster-prevention microgrid system that could provide essential lighting, food, communication, and life-support equipment during the 72-hour “golden
window” for the safety of Indigenous townships. The microgrid system combines four components, solar generators, power storage, backup power, and remote power management systems.
The benefits of the disaster prevention micro-grid system are as follows:
1. The primary supply of electricity when using these systems is usually from solar power. When insufficient solar power is generated, the system transmits electricity from Taiwan Power Company. This helps reduce
2. The system provides 100% self-sufficiency in renewable energy during the islanding effect caused by disasters. Thus, it helps to achieve the vision of zero carbon emissions during a disaster.
3. The system provides a stable supply of electricity for 72 hours for lighting, communication, and life-support equipment. It also helps to support the residents who are waiting for rescue.
