Abstract
This project will develop and deploy an advanced distributed control and communication infrastructure with the goal of optimizing renewable resource utilization and system benefits. The project will integrate high-penetration distributed Photovoltaic (PV) systems, local storage, and substation-sited PV and storage with both local distribution system management and overall load management at the system level. At the local level, the project will evaluate smart inverter interface technologies to enhance system benefits, applying previous work in the area of smart inverter interface software to residential and substation-based PV. This project aims to match local loads with rate structures to identify and resolve technical issues related to high penetration of renewable generation at the utility distribution level. The project will investigate and analyze additional consumer-based demand response opportunities using a modern communication infrastructure integrated with a Home Area Network (HAN), commercial building control systems and smart devices.
