dc.description.abstractFor fiscal year 2017, according to the Department of Energy’s June 2018 sustainability performance report, the DoD’s total energy consumption stood at 210 quadrillion joules (199 trillion Btu) of energy with a total energy expenditure of $11.9 billion. The majority of its energy budget was spent on the purchase of fossil fuels. This reliance on fossil fuels to sustain military operations would pose serious financial, operational, and strategic challenges and risks to the energy security and resiliency of the military. To reduce the reliance on fossil fuels, SECNAV has set forth five energy goals as key steps for the Navy to switch to alternative renewable energy sources. This thesis focuses on the design and development of a feasible micro-grid powered by renewable energy to fulfil SECNAV’s energy goal of increasing alternative energy ashore by producing 50% of shore-based energy requirements from alternative sources by 2020. The main aim of the thesis is to design and provide a proof of concept for an automated industrial control of a supercapacitor microgrid and compressed air storage system by integrating an alternate power supply in the supercapacitor solar microgrid and compressed air storage system, and by designing an algorithm to control the power supply using off-the-shelf automated industrial components.en_US
