Project Summary:

Public Service Company of New Mexico and its partners co-located an 500kW/1MWh advanced lead acid battery with a separately installed 500kW solar photovoltaic (PV) plant to create a dispatchable distributed generation resource. This hybrid resource provides simultaneous voltage smoothing and peak shifting through advanced control algorithms and switches between two configurations, end-of-feeder and beginning-of- feeder. Data collection and analysis produce information for a wide range of applications including grid upgrade deferral. The project has also yielded modeling tools used to optimize battery system control algorithms and further the understanding of feeders with storage and distributed generation. The site is located in southeast Albuquerque.
