dc.description.abstractTraditionally, distribution system reliability has been improved by adopting grid hardening measures and adding intelligence into the system. Grid hardening measures are in many cases the most effective solution but they may sometimes not be attractive/feasible due to system specifications, customer preferences, and other reasons. Moreover, in some cases, grid hardening measures such as vegetation management, can also be very expensive or might otherwise not be a viable option. In such cases, a cost-effective solution to reduce customer downtime (and hence SAIDI) may be to leverage strategic placement of storage-enabled microgrid systems. This paper describes EPRI’s efforts to develop a framework for utilizing a utility’s reliability targets as the yardstick to size, locate and operate storage-enabled microgrids for reliability improvement purposes. The framework is demonstrated using a 44 kV utility feeder as a case study.
