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:
- The continued development and implementation of a modelling algorithm to quantify the distributed generation hosting capacity of ComEd’s network; and
- 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.
