Hudson Yards, located on the west side of midtown Manhattan in New York City, is the largestprivately funded development projects in the United States comprising a mixed use development.The development is designed with a Micro Grid which connects to ConEdison thru a high tensioninterconnection at 13.2kv level and onsite generation serves 70% of the electric load while alsoserving heating and cooling loads of the development.Resiliency an important consideration post Super Storm Sandy in New York City and drovecollaboration with ConEdison to create an interconnection which meet ConEdison standards butalso allowed for sharing of ConEdison switches and wires during an outage. This overlappingMicro Grid design allowed for power flow to sections of the ConEdison distribution to back feedsection of the development that could not be feed normally while parallel to ConEdisons 13.8kvsystem.The system architecture and control solutions and system control are presented for this Micro Gridinstallation.
