Emerging Technology to Support Distributed Grid Optimization and Microgrids

The briefing focuses on the value of distributed distribution management as it applies to Microgrids to support overall value in moving electricity generation toward a more sustainable model.

Recorded: 18 Apr 2016

Webinar Overview

This briefing explores the structure, use, and value of Distributed Grid Management as a process and technology to support distributed grid optimization functions and microgrids to better integrate into the electrical grid small quantities of local, distributed power generated from renewable resources. The briefing focuses on the value of distributed distribution management as it applies to Microgrids to support overall value in moving electricity generation toward a more sustainable model.

Never in the history of the utility industry has the electric utility become so dependent on systems and data to drive safe and reliable operations. Electric utilities face a daunting challenge when they address local and regional mandates to increase use of distributed smart grid technologies including intermittent renewable, distribution based, distributed generation (DG). These DG systems are normally interfaced to the grid through power electronics and energy storage systems. A systematic organization of these DG systems within a Microgrid forms autonomous electricity environments that can operate within a larger electric utility grid.
