This paper presents a hierarchy for autonomous mobile microgrids to ensure robustness and scalability of such systems for power distribution applications. Developing an autonomous mobile microgrid based on the proposed hierarchy will create a microgrid system that will autonomously connect to different power nodes (generators, loads, storage units, converters, etc.) and interact with them accordingly. This system will have the scalability characteristics of an ad hoc system and can reconfigure itself depending on available power nodes.
