Hudson Yards, located on the west side of midtown Manhattan in New York City, is the largest
privately 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 tension
interconnection at 13.2kv level and onsite generation serves 70% of the electric load while also
serving heating and cooling loads of the development.
Resiliency an important consideration post Super Storm Sandy in New York City and drove
collaboration with ConEdison to create an interconnection which meet ConEdison standards but
also allowed for sharing of ConEdison switches and wires during an outage. This overlapping
Micro Grid design allowed for power flow to sections of the ConEdison distribution to back feed
section of the development that could not be feed normally while parallel to ConEdisons 13.8kv
The system architecture and control solutions and system control are presented for this Micro Grid
