Flexible Distribution of EneRgy and Storage resources

(FDERS) was proposed for reliably supplying critical and sensitive loads from a cooperative and adaptive network of multiple smaller-rated distributed energy and storage resources - especially when power from the main grid is not available. It was inspired by the cooperative formations observed in nature such as the V-shape of a migratory bird flock and peloton of a cycling marathon racing team. The objective is to realize greater sustainability benefits like increased resource lifetime, optimal energy storage deployment, enhanced controllability and improved system robustness.
