This project will support President Obama's Climate Action Plan and commitment to improve power grid resiliency in the USA and help critical facilities, communities and cities better prepare for possible electricity disruptions caused by extreme weather conditions.

The objective of this funding is to perform research, development and testing of advanced microgrid controllers capable of managing and controlling microgrid systems to improve viability, reliability and resiliency of the electric distribution grid. Alstom will research and design community microgrid systems for the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corporation (PIDC) and the Philadelphia Water Department (PWD). The demonstration project will be implemented at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, the 1,200-acre former naval shipyard, now transformed into a progressive and modern business campus with more than 145 companies, occupying more than 2 million square metres of space.

Upon completion, part of the campus will be self-sufficient in generating, managing and storing electricity and will be able to operate independently from the main grid in case of an outage due to extreme weather or other extraordinary events.

By combining Alstom’s energy management and substation automation technology, The Microgrid Research Development and System Design (RD&D) project will provide PWD and PIDC with a comprehensive end-to-end Microgrid Controller System (MGCS) prototype which includes microgrid islanding, synchronization and reconnection, protection, voltage frequency, power quality management and system resiliency.
