This chapter presents the principles and concepts of system of systems (SoSs) and applies them to microgrids. It defines a microgrid as it pertains to the five principles of SoSs, and uses a SoS architecture to develop a novel way to model such a distributed electricity system. The chapter provides a case study in the modeling and simulation of a microgrid. It introduces the dynamic data-driven application system (DDDAS) framework of a particular microgrid design. The chapter describes about simulation techniques for SoSs such as microgrids and gives a foundation for further research in the areas of DDDAS and its relationship to agent-based simulation. Based on the five principles of a SoS, a microgrid presents itself as a dead-on example in that it possesses operational independence, managerial independence, geographic distribution, emergent behavior, and evolutionary development.
