Micro Grid - Harding, Expansion and Maintenance - Sustainable Approach to Resiliency 

10-13-2017 10:43

Summary

Since New York University has embarked on a Greening of the Campus. First was the re-powering of the 1960 Co generation system and expansion of the 4160V Micro Grid system. During the Super Storm Sandy the system remained operational and rode through the Manhattan power outage. After Sandy demand has increased for connection to the Micro Grid to expand the shelter in place capabilities for existing dormitories, housing, and assembly areas. These new loads impose increased demand on the campus Micro Grid. This demand is creating challenges in balancing economics with resiliency goals. Opportunities for viable solutions are found through a mix of utilization of existing assets and strategic planning of new assets which provide a sustainable approach to increased campus resiliency. Increased importance is also emphasized on maintenance for Micro Grid resiliency.
