PacWave Grid Integration Study: Transient and Dynamic Conditions - Final Report

Terry Lettenmaier, Vahan Gevorgian, Michael Antonishen

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This report describes the results of PSCAD simulations that were performed in 2020 to assess the impacts of PacWave generation on CLPUD's 12.47-kV distribution and 69-kV subtransmission systems. PacWave South (PacWave) is a wave energy test facility planned by Oregon State University. PacWave shore facilities will be located south of Seal Rock on the Oregon coast. PacWave is expected to be operational in 2022 and will connect up to 10 MW of generation to CLPUD's Seal Rock distribution feeder.
