The project name: Faster-than-Real-Time Simulation with Demonstration for Resilient Distributed Energy Resource Integration. It’s goal? To develop a Measurement and Model Integrator for Ensuring Grid Security (MIEGS) system to better detect security threats and provide enhanced clarity on grid situational awareness.

It’s a relevant and timely effort, according to EDD CTO Robert Broadwater.

“With breakthroughs in smart inverters, energy storage and flexible load management, our industry is entering an era where these technologies can provide new value for utilities and customers,” he said.
