The Definition of a Mini Grid and MicroGrid tend to be interchangeable. The US Department of Energy has defined a MIcro Grid as "a group of interconnected loads and distributed energy resources within clearly defined electrical boundaries thatt acts as a controllable entity with respect to a grid. A Microgrid can connect or disconnect from the grid to enable it to operate in both grid connected mode or island mode."
OPS considers a Micro Grid to be up 200 kW in capcity while a Mini Grid may be up to several MW.
