Abstract: This report describes a survey of modeling and simulation (M&S) efforts that are related to tactical microgrids. Based on this survey, the most relevant M&S projects have been identified and compiled into a coherent database to provide a "roadmap" for the US Army and Department of Defense (DOD). This roadmap will be used to guide DOD M&S strategy and planning, as well as develop a comprehensive microgrid M&S capability and prioritize future efforts. Analysis of current microgrid M&S research is presented, and specifics of the different projects related to tactical microgrids are compared. The results were then used to identify gaps in existing tactical microgrid M&S research. This work was funded by the US Army Research Laboratory and performed by Intelligent Power and Energy Research Corporation.
