Simulation Framework for Demand Response Analysis and Control System
EnerNex Corporation

This document meets the deliverable requirement for Task 4, Develop Simulation Framework for a Demand Response Analysis and Control System (DRACS) for the California Institute for Energy and Environment’s (CIEE) grant for Research Opportunity DR ETD-02-01.

The grant was provided to the EnerNex-led team to address two research topics and questions identified in the opportunity notice:

 “Using a military (or another, such as air traffic control) C3I system as a model, adapt it to conceptually deal with C2I electricity applications such as dispatching DER to keep the lights on. Compare and contrast the chosen C3I model with the requirements for implementing a C²I strategy for integrating utility information and communications systems. Are there analogies that indicate utilities can operate in a similar fashion? If not, what are the gaps that need to be filled and is it feasible to fill the gaps?

 Given current utility systems and assuming the systems are integrated, how would the CAISO or an UDC operate its control centers in a military (or another) C3I style? With up-to-date real-time information and the ability to control all of its available assets, given a particular operational scenario, how would a plan to address the scenario be executed using strategies based on military (or another) C3I?”

The requirements identified in this document are based on existing use cases (e.g., [1-3]), interaction with San Diego Gas & Electric stakeholders, and coordinated efforts between EnerNex Demand Response experts, the Open Smart Grid AMI Enterprise team, and C3I system engineers at Oak Ridge National Laboratories (ORNL).
