This means that each site will continue to operate independently in the event of a loss of communication with the central station and that the DG equipment will not default to an all-on or all-off mode. This implies that some degree of optimization capability must reside within the local controller.

Thus, the local controller will need to be able to estimate the DG electrical and thermal output, the building electric and thermal loads, and the utility bills.
