Photos placed in horizontal position with even amount of white space between photos and header Photos placed in horizontal position with even amount of white space between photos and header Sandia National Laboratories is a multi-program laboratory managed and operated by Sandia Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation, for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-AC04-94AL85000. Thoughts on Testing, Demonstrations and Pilots Abraham Ellis Manager, Photovoltaics and Distributed Systems Integration August, 2016
  2. 2. Outline § Microgrids becoming of age… Sort of, maybe? § Crossing the Valley of Death § The value of full-scale demonstrations and pilot § Filling the information gap § GMLC Testing Network and Open Library § Conclusions 2
  3. 3. Microgrids becoming of age… Maybe? § Big and growing numbers* § Database: ~1,600 projects, 16 GW installed, ~2 GW/year to quadruple by 2024 § North America (mainly U.S.) and Asia each represent ~40% market share § Opportunities and Drivers § Deployment of DER, mainly RE, but increasingly storage § Expansion of comm. infrastructure and intelligent devices § Demand for resilience, differentiated reliability, iEnergy, prosumer concepts § Signs of progressive policies and initiatives § Challenges § Business model, value proposition § Regulatory framework § Lack standardization § Integration technology gaps 3 * NavigantMicrogrid DeploymentTracker 2016 Q2. Includes commercial/industrial,institutional/campus,community,utility distribution,military,remote, and direct current (DC) systems operating,under developmentand proposed
  4. 4. Crossing the Valley of Death 4 Lab-based & field full- scale demos/pilots Proof of concept Government-funded National Labs, Universities Research Development Deployment Commercialization Industry-funded Technology providers, Utilities, Consultants Support,Investment § Microgrids are at various maturity stages, depending on application § Demonstrations and pilots can help bridge the chasm
  5. 5. The Value of Demonstrations and Pilots § Expose gaps and barriers § Technology; regulatory/policy; models, tools & procedures § Reduce risk § Prove technologies; validate assumptions and models; build capacity and know-how across the industry § Accelerate innovation, standardization and adoption 5 § What kind of demo/pilot? What do you want to learn? § Lab-based vs real world deployment § Simulation/emulation vs hardware, or combined (HIL) § Small scale vs large scale
  6. 6. Lab-based Demonstration § Islanding detection demonstration 6 ConnectedIslanded
  7. 7. Full-scale Demonstration 7 § Mission assurance microgrid deployment
  8. 8. Full-scale Demonstration § Commercial/utility-scale µgrid control for local DER management 8
  9. 9.

  10. 10. Demonstration Capabilities § Opportunities § Large investment in demo/pilots § Vast capabilities at national labs, universities, utilities, manufacturers, independent labs, up-takers § Challenges § Need information, better access mechanisms, better integration 10
  11. 11. GMLC Project 1.2.3 (GMLC TN/OL) § Goal: Accelerate grid modernization by improving collaboration on device and systems testing, and by making lab- based test capabilities and simulation models more accessible § Objectives: § Establishing a Testing Network (GMLC-TN) that will function as a federated, lab-based resource for standards-based testing and validation of grid devices and systems § Establishing an Open Library (GMLC-OL) that serves as a public repository for validated component models, simulation tools and testing resources
