The DEW/ISM software from Electrical Distribution Design represents a new paradigm in modeling and analysis for electric utilities. Come listen to Steve Steffel, Manager of Regional Capacity Planning – Distributed Energy Resources, speak on Tuesday, January 23rd at 3 pm in the session: Real World Experiences Streamlining DER Interconnection Studies. Steve’s presentation, entitled “Big Data Analytics at Pepco Holdings: Integrated System Model,” will describe the implementation of DEW/ISM that includes a 1.9M meter Integrated System Model of PHI’s primary and secondary system. The ISM includes over 730 MW’s of DER and an 8760 hourly load model for all 1.9M customers with net-metered accounts separated into native load and DER output. The ISM provides a platform for automating engineering analysis and maintaining model data quality that is critical for managing the modern smart grid.
EDD’s Chief Technical Officer, Dr. Robert Broadwater, will be on hand to answer questions and to meet with interested parties to discuss the DEW/ISM technology.
