The presentation provides case studies and process of model and system validation using the Clemson University’s Duke Energy eGRID real-time emulator in the SCE&G Energy Innovation Center in Charleston SC. With the ongoing penetration of SmartGrid and DER technology on the T&D feeders, including Wind, PV, GridEdge and Energy Storage technologies, the facility is used to validate the performance and operation of these devices at full power levels. The power stages and controls are validated in an integrated approach. The presentation will provide real project case studies and results on several industry and DOE projects.
