Microgrid Resiliency Initiatives at Yale University 

02-20-2020 11:08

Summary

Yale University's two microgrids have run through hurricanes, winter storms and everything in between. Along the way the University has developed a series of innovative solutions for enhancing the electrical resiliency of these systems: fast bus transfer, auto throwover, automated load shedding, and emergency power system hardening. Additionally, the University has established commissioning best practices to ensure that these systems function when it really matters. This presentation will dive “into the weeds” to discuss the detailed engineering and operational implementation of these schemes, as well as some mistakes made and lessons learned along the way.
