Document Description
The proposed project would use collected data from a Southern California Edison Substation into a generic microgrid controller (GMC) model. The GMC does not require any physical changes to the substation. Different tariffs and interconnections would be assessed for a portfolio of scenarios to address the participation of distributed energy resources into the market, and a fictitious retail/distribution market would be developed and assessed.
