1.5.05 CleanStart Distributed Energy Resource Management System

The CleanStart Distributed Energy Resource (DER) Management System will design, implement, and validate a novel blackstart and dynamic microgrid solution from DER feeders. This project will validate the capability to start a feeder from a complete outage, using DERs in the form of solar, energy storage, minimal diesel, and building control to resynchronize with the wider area network. The project will integrate distributed analytics, controls, and DER management system concepts, along with enhanced communication and control for agile islanding and microgrid controls.
