Clarkson University Chooses DEW/ISM for Distribution Planning Research Project

Blacksburg, Va.- Clarkson University chose Electrical Distribution Design’s DEW/ISM software for a distribution planning research project. The university has gained support by Orange & Rockland Utilities and National Grid. According to Clarkson University professor, Thomas Ortmeyer, the project is a study to identify the costs of service of supplying energy to battery electric vehicles in the…

Electrical Distribution Design’s Cost-Benefit Analysis of Orange & Rockland Utilities’ Smart Grid Investments Released by EPRI

Blacksburg, Va. – October 10, 2014 – The cost-benefit analysis Electrical Distribution Design performed using DEW/ISM with Orange & Rockland Utilities and Brookhaven National Laboratory was released by EPRI in early October. ORU had begun to implement automation on about five percent of its distribution system. When functional, the system would be represented in near real time…

A model-centric approach allows utilities to analyze more data than ever before

A mounting problem for utilities is the increasing amount of data produced by smart grid devices like Automated Meter Infrastructure and Radar Weather Data. These technologies are generating terabyte sized data sets, which utilities are struggling to, or failing to, analyze. The standard practice is to deploy different models to organize data and solve certain problems. This creates silo’ed organizations with…

EDD president discusses the smart grid at Greentech Media Soft Grid Conference

John Federowicz, president of Electrical Distribution Design, spoke with a group of industry professionals during the “Resource Planning in the Age of the Soft Grid: Targeted Investment in EE and DERs” panel session at the third Greentech Media Soft Grid conference at the Stanford Research Institute in Melo Park, California on Sept. 10. You can read the Q&A…

PV interconnection studies help utilities deal with the growth of solar generation

Photovoltaic (PV) solar systems are one of the fastest-growing energy sources being integrated into the utility distribution system. According to Clean Technica, solar energy capacity in the United States grew 418 percent from 2010-2014. This is in part because states that have Renewable Portfolio Standards (mandatory) or Goals (voluntary), are seeing a large increase of solar…

EDD to perform PV interconnection study on Silicon Valley Power’s entire electrical system

Electrical Distribution Design, Inc. is implementing a three-phase dynamic simulation of Silicon Valley Power’s entire transmission and distribution system, using the simulation to study the effects of high penetration distribution-level solar generation on transmission system generation dynamics. EDD built Silicon Valley Power’s model to enable a three-phase analysis, though for the past 40 years electrical systems have been…
