Building a Better Grid, in Partnership with the OMNETRIC Group and Siemens

Electric utilities have traditionally employed centralized control systems to keep the electric grid operating optimally, focusing on balancing energy loads with generation, and to the extent possible, controlling power flows on the transmission grid. At the ESIF, NREL partnered with the OMNETRIC Group and Siemens to demonstrate a distributed control hierarchy that allows control decisions to be made at the grid edge—enabling a more timely response to changing conditions.
