Grid-Connected Advanced Power Electronics Systems (GRAPES) Projects: Aiming to Enhance Power System Stability, Flexibility, Robustness, and Economy
Founded under the auspices of the National Science Foundation, GRid-connected Advanced Power Electronics Systems (GRAPES) is an R&D program that aims to accelerate the adoption of power electronics–based controllers in the electric grid to improve system stability, flexibility, and robustness. The program is operated by The University of Arkansas, the University of South Carolina, and […]
This report details EPRI work to design and test an algorithm for optimization of Volt/VAR&mdasha smart inverter function that allows distributed energy resources to help maintain acceptable voltage along a feeder under various grid operating conditions. It can monitor and control smart inverter–connected distributed energy resources.
