PG&E IEEE 2030.5 DER Headend Project: Building the Foundation for Full-scale DERMS
PG&E has interconnected more Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) to its grid than any other utility in the country and as the distribution grid interconnects more DERs onto it, it needs to have a way to monitor and control it all. Like a symphony, the system aims to eventually maximize the use of DERs on the grid to avoid curtailment, to enhance grid operators' visibility of masked loads and charge and discharge at opportune times. PG&E is currently setting the foundations of this system by enabling low-cost telemetry and control devices to be available for its 1MW customers. Using the IEEE 2030.5 protocol the utility has approved vendors producing remote site gateways that can communicate back to PG&E's IEEE 2030.5 headend server. This methodology lowers the price of telemetry for interconnecting DER customers from existing methods, which further encourages the installation and adoption of DERs onto our grid. In a phased rollout, PG&E plans to integrate more and more features into this capability meeting the objectives of a full DERMS system and integration into a future Advanced Distribution Management System (ADMS).

Accelerating DER Adoption Through a DERMS Deployment at Commonwealth Edison
Increasing amounts of wind, solar, battery storage and other DER interconnections on the distribution system require operating platforms to monitor and manage those systems. ComEd’s implementation of a DERMS platform in 2021 has helped the utility overcome a potential back-flow issue through a substation that could occur during high wind, high solar and lower customer demand situations. This presentation will highlight the functional performance and benefits of the implementation along with the Operations Center approach to integrating a new real-time platform and the creative testing and go-live strategies that were developed to overcome COVID challenges.

Using DERMS to Monitor and Control a Fleet of Microgrids and Solar+Storage Sites for Optimal Resiliency and Economic Benefit
North Carolina’s Electric Cooperatives (NCEMC with its 26 coops) has deployed a fleet of microgrids and solar + storage sites throughout its service territory to bring generation flexibility, system resiliency, and economic benefit to its member cooperatives. All sites are observable and controllable by an upstream, centralized DERMS to optimize their operation for maximum value. This presentation from NCEMC and its vendor partner OATI will cover NCMEC’s philosophy around deploying microgrids and solar+storage sites, the controlling system architecture, including a centralized DERMS operating in three balancing authorities with local controls, design considerations, project implementation and real-world results.font-family:"Arial",sans-serif;
