Abstract The observability of system operating state is the prerequisite for most system-wide optimization and control applications. The operation of microgrids and networked microgrids requires a sensing and communication infrastructure to collect real-time measurements carrying system operational information. This chapter reviews commonly used sensing and communication technologies for microgrid and networked microgrid monitoring and introduces concepts and methodologies for the planning and operation of this critical system. The goal is to achieve performances in terms of cost-effectiveness, end-to-end data transfer delay, and multidomain resiliency against component failures. Case study results are presented to demonstrate the importance of mutual knowledge awareness between the power grid domain and the communication network for achieving desirable results in such a cross-domain problem.
