5th report for the E.S. Cornwall Scholarship – second 3 months with Commonwealth Edison

Over the past quarter, my fifth on the E.S. Cornwall Memorial Scholarship (1st November 2015 to 31st January 2016), I have continued my placement with Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) based in the Smart Grid and Technology team.

During this time I have been focused on:


  1. The continued development and implementation of a modelling algorithm to quantify the distributed generation hosting capacity of ComEd’s network; and
  2. Planning for the Bronzeville Community Microgrid, a project that would see the development of a microgrid to supply a number of critical facilities, infrastructure and customers within the South Chicago community of Bronzeville.


My fifth quarterly report (here – PDF 2.13MB) provides an overview of this work and its value to the Australian electricity supply industry.

I welcome any feedback on this report or my future direction.
