ADMS Test Bed Updates

Annabelle Pratt, Santosh Veda

Research output: NRELPresentation


This webinar will present results from a joint project with utility partner Xcel Energy in which we evaluated their ADMS application for volt-var optimization using different levels of model quality. We were able to help Xcel Energy understand the trade-offs of telemetry measurements and model quality when managing a feeder's voltage profile to maximize energy conservation. We simulated scenarios with varying levels of model quality and measurement density to evaluate Xcel's options for best using its ADMS. The results help Xcel and other utilities understand how network data affects voltage management as grid operations see continued growth in solar photovoltaic (PV) systems and electric vehicles (EVs).
