This thesis builds upon existing research involving energy microgrid solutions and applies the findings to isolated U.S. Navy locations, specifically, San Nicolas Island. This includes accurately building power system models for U.S. Navy remote and disparate island facilities total power-system microgrids and providing vital information for decision makers. Multifactor optimization and analysis conducted in this thesis led to enhancement of the proposed models and can aid in development of efficient control solutions. These solutions would allow the U.S. Navy to efficiently manage power systems at facilities worldwide. Ultimately, these optimizations can lead to net-zero energy solutions. The experimental and analytical methods presented in this thesis detail the technical simulations from the EnergyPLAN software model. By implementing these plans, the models and approaches developed in this thesis can be applied to other locations, as well.
