Abstract:

The objective of Duke Energy’s Smart Grid Demonstration Project is to optimize distributed energy resources to achieve a more efficient and reliable grid, enable improved customer programs, and prepare for increased adoption of distributed renewable generation and plug-in electric vehicles (PEV). To achieve its goal, Duke Energy will install 40,000 advanced meters for customers, 8,000 communication nodes at transformers, and distribution automation including integrated voltage/ volt-ampere-reactive (VAR) control, self healing, sectionalization, and line sensors. Five homes will be equipped with solar photovoltaic panels, battery-energy storage, PEVs, and home energy management systems (HEM).
