Abstract: This paper presents a novel way for electric power recovery using mobile micro grids. It’s an integration of power electronics with robotics. Conventional power grid has become more complex with more and more Distributed Energy Resources (DER), calling for the need of a more flexible and reliable micro grid architecture. This paper aims to design a micro grid composed of autonomous vehicles that can navigate through a disaster stricken area for the recovery of electric power. The designed mobile micro grid is expected to detect for current failure and navigates to the desired load while simultaneously establishing the electrical connection.
