URL More about PDE Smart Microgrid System
PDE's Electrical Training Institute Smart Microgrid demonstrates an existing electrical infrastructure integrated with advanced electronics, energy storage, solar, and controls, providing a platform for smarter and more reliable electrical systems. These technologies will enable adoption of the emerging smart grid, facilitate integration of electric vehicles to the grid, and support California's 2020 renewable portfolio standards requiring 33% of the state's electricity to be generated from renewable resources. The system will demonstrate 6 smart grid functions: 1. The ability to charge electric vehicles through multiple energy sources, including solar, battery energy storage system (BESS), or grid power. Benefits include reduced CO2 emissions, reduced demand on the grid and local electrical transmission and distribution system. 2. Utilizing the BESS to smooth solar production at the local level. 3. Respond to a demand response signal from the utility by injecting active power into the grid from stored energy and integrate with existing building management systems. 4. Provide a more reliable electrical system by maintaining uninterrupted power during power outages and utilizing solar to sustain the load during daylight hours. 5. Showcase state-of-the-art inverter technology capable of integrating 3 DC sources and varying voltages to improve efficiency and reliability of renewable sources of energy. 6. Participate in ancillary utility markets by providing or absorbing power.
