Since 2010, Yale University has built a new cogeneration plant, repowered and old cogenerations plant, and vastly expanded our centralized emergency power system. During (and sometimes as a result of!) these projects, we’ve spent hours in the switchgear rooms trying to figure out what went wrong, pored over reams of sequence of event data, blacked out the campus more times than we would have cared to, and, ultimately, engineered and built a robust, resilient microgrid with a number of innovative features and full islanding capability. Learn from our mistakes and ultimate successes in design, construction, and commissioning.
