Helping Alaskan Homeowners Helping Alaskan Homeowners Rebate Program Helping Alaskan Homeowners February 23, 2010 - 1:46pm Addthis The Alaska state legislature's plan to give all homeowners an incentive to weatherize their homes is a hit. In 2008, the legislature relaunched the once-dormant Home Energy Rebate Program, which reimburses homeowners up to $10,000 for every dollar spent making energy efficient upgrades. State-owned Alaska Housing Finance Corporation manages the rebate program. "It hasn't been funded for years so it's great to resurrect it," says Sherrie Simmonds, AHFC's communications officer. Residents sign up online or to a call center. When their name comes to the top of the list, an energy rater calls and has the rating done on the home.

Household environmental monitoring a strategy to help homeowners reduce their environmental impact  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

A group of 20 households was established to study whether we can motivate environmentally sustainable behaviour by providing homeowners with a clear picture of their impact, tangible reasons for improvement, and tailored solutions to follow. Reports for each household compared heating fuel, electricity, water, vehicle fuel/waste generation within the group and recommended cost-effective measures to reduce consumption. On average, 26% of the recommended measures were implemented, resulting in an estimated greenhouse gas reduction of about 2 tonnes per household. Wide variations were found between households, demonstrating the potential to reduce environmental impact through lifestyle, conservation, and energy conscious retrofits.

How well do home energy audits serve the homeowner?  

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

How well do home energy audits serve the homeowner? How well do home energy audits serve the homeowner? Title How well do home energy audits serve the homeowner? Publication Type Conference Proceedings LBNL Report Number LBNL-5712E Year of Publication 2012 Authors Ingle, Aaron, Mithra M. Moezzi, Loren Lutzenhiser, and Richard C. Diamond Conference Name 2012 Summer Study on Energy Efficiency in Buildings Date Published 05/2012 Conference Location Pacific Grove, CA, USA Abstract Home energy audits administered by utilities and government typically provide homeowners with lists of technical upgrade recommendations intended to increase the technical energy efficiency of the house. Audits proceed with assessment of physical characteristics, subsequently processed with a computational model and transformed into a report, sometimes customized by the auditor. While the design of an energy audit reflects program and policy points of view - balancing program cost with expected program savings, educating people about the value of energy efficiency, etc. - it is crucial to consider the criteria for a good home energy audit and recommendations from homeowners' points of view. How well do home energy audits currently meet these criteria? How well do asset-based assessments match what homeowners seem to want? We consider these questions based on a study of 286 homeowners who participated in a Seattle City Light home energy audit program. Findings suggest that there is substantial opportunity to reorient audit programs to better fit the realities of why homeowners undertake energy audits and retrofits. In the Seattle City Light program, participating homeowners found certain elements of the audit they received - interaction with professional auditors, blower door testing, and customized, specific upgrade recommendations - to be more compelling than the standardized and quantitative elements. Rather than being engaged with increasing energy efficiency, as invited by an asset perspective and asset-based efficiency scores, homeowners wanted to build better understanding of their home's energy use and to learn how to solve specific problems, especially reflecting their household's actual energy use practices.

To understand the behavior of wind turbines during grid disturbances, manufacturers and utility grid operators perform a series of tests and transient simulation studies. Utility operators need to estimate how much power wind turbines can provide to help regulate grid frequency. And after design modifications are made to control software, manufacturers may need to retest their turbines. But testing wind turbines in the field can be a lengthy and expensive process.

The initial federal funding for the Colorado State University Smart Grid Integration Laboratory is through a Congressionally Directed Project (CDP), DE-OE0000070 Smart Grid Integration Laboratory. The original program requested in three one-year increments for staff acquisition, curriculum development, and instrumentation ?? all which will benefit the Laboratory. This report focuses on the initial phase of staff acquisition which was directed and administered by DOE NETL/ West Virginia under Project Officer Tom George. Using this CDP funding, we have developed the leadership and intellectual capacity for the SGIC. This was accomplished by investing (hiring) a core team of Smart Grid Systems engineering faculty focused on education, research, and innovation of a secure and smart grid infrastructure. The Smart Grid Integration Laboratory will be housed with the separately funded Integrid Laboratory as part of CSU??s overall Smart Grid Integration Center (SGIC). The period of performance of this grant was 10/1/2009 to 9/30/2011 which included one no cost extension due to time delays in faculty hiring. The Smart Grid Integration Laboratory??s focus is to build foundations to help graduate and undergraduates acquire systems engineering knowledge; conduct innovative research; and team externally with grid smart organizations. Using the results of the separately funded Smart Grid Workforce Education Workshop (May 2009) sponsored by the City of Fort Collins, Northern Colorado Clean Energy Cluster, Colorado State University Continuing Education, Spirae, and Siemens has been used to guide the hiring of faculty, program curriculum and education plan. This project develops faculty leaders with the intellectual capacity to inspire its students to become leaders that substantially contribute to the development and maintenance of Smart Grid infrastructure through topics such as: (1) Distributed energy systems modeling and control; (2) Energy and power conversion; (3) Simulation of electrical power distribution system that integrates significant quantities of renewable and distributed energy resources; (4) System dynamic modeling that considers end-user behavior, economics, security and regulatory frameworks; (5) Best practices for energy management IT control solutions for effective distributed energy integration (including security with the underlying physical power systems); (6) Experimental verification of effects of various arrangements of renewable generation, distributed generation and user load types along with conventional generation and transmission. Understanding the core technologies for enabling them to be used in an integrated fashion within a distribution network remains is a benefit to the future energy paradigm and future and present energy engineers.

A portal for visualizing grid usage.  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

We introduce a framework for measuring the use of Grid services and exposing simple summary data to an authorized set of Grid users through a JSR168-enabled portal. The sensor framework has been integrated into the Globus Toolkit and allows Grid administrators to have access to a mechanism helping with report and usage statistics. Although the original focus was the reporting of actions in relationship to GridFTP services, the usage service has been expanded to report also on the use of other Grid services.

Grid Logging: Best Practices Guide  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The purpose of this document is to help developers of Grid middleware and application software generate log files that will be useful to Grid administrators, users, developers and Grid middleware itself. Currently, most of the currently generated log files are only useful to the author of the program. Good logging practices are instrumental to performance analysis, problem diagnosis, and security auditing tasks such as incident tracing and damage assessment. This document does not discuss the issue of a logging API. It is assumed that a standard log API such as syslog (C), log4j (Java), or logger (Python) is being used. Other custom logging API or even printf could be used. The key point is that the logs must contain the required information in the required format. At a high level of abstraction, the best practices for Grid logging are: (1) Consistently structured, typed, log events; (2) A standard high-resolution timestamp; (3) Use of logging levels and categories to separate logs by detail and purpose; (4) Consistent use of global and local identifiers; and (5) Use of some regular, newline-delimited ASCII text format. The rest of this document describes each of these recommendations in detail.

First, in the main living areas of homes A and B there was ap proximately a 3-fold reduction in 2,4-D levels relative to the homeowner application study, contrasted with a 3-fold increase in 2,4-D levels in homes E and F. In the case of home B, there was a 2-fold increase in the 2,4-D level on the lawn, and in home F there was a 5-fold decrease in the level on the front lawn. ... Since the homeowners in homes B, E, and F removed or thoroughly rinsed shoes after self-application and before reentry, the differences between homeowner and commercial application tend to indicate that activity patterns of the family overshadow effects such as the applicator's reentry into the home or the level on the turf. ... These scenarios, in comparison with fully occupied homes, suggest that the postapplication 2,4-D floor dust levels of homes X and Y were caused primarily by intrusion mechanisms other than track-in and are presumed to involve resuspension of 2,4-D from turf followed by fine particle intrusion of the closed house (home Y) and an incremental addition of fine particle penetration as doors and windows were opened (home X). ...

Location Based Security for Smart Grid Applications  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Smart Grid (SG) promises efficient, sustainable, green and reliable electrical delivery by combining the existing electrical distribution network assets with modern information and communications technologies (ICT) in order to transfer information and energy in both directions. Introduction of these intelligent devices will help the grid monitor, protect, and automatically optimise the operation of interconnected elements, in addition to interaction between energy suppliers and consumers. However, this exposes the future grid to new security challenges and risks. In this paper, a framework for protecting Smart Grid applications using geographic location of the devices connected to it is proposed. With this framework, each device on the grid adds an extra layer of security. The proposed scheme is not application or device specific which means it can be implemented on any communication node on the grid. The scheme uses an algebraic code based cryptosystems known as GPT (Gabidulin -Paramonov-Trejtakov), which provides a very strong protection while utilising the smallest key size as compared to other cryptosystems based on algebraic codes. As with other code based cryptosystems, the proposed security framework protects grid information against cyber threats as well as against channel impairments in the form of error protection codes.

Smart Grid Interoperability Maturity Model  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The integration of automation associated with electricity resources (including transmission and distribution automation and demand-side resources operated by end-users) is key to supporting greater efficiencies and incorporating variable renewable resources and electric vehicles into the power system. The integration problems faced by this community are analogous to those faced in the health industry, emergency services, and other complex communities with many stakeholders. To highlight this issue and encourage communication and the development of a smart grid interoperability community, the GridWise Architecture Council (GWAC) created an Interoperability Context-Setting Framework. This "conceptual model" has been helpful to explain the importance of organizational alignment in addition to technical and informational interface specifications for "smart grid" devices and systems. As a next step to building a community sensitive to interoperability, the GWAC is investigating an interoperability maturity model (IMM) based on work done by others to address similar circumstances. The objective is to create a tool or set of tools that encourages a culture of interoperability in this emerging community. The tools would measure status and progress, analyze gaps, and prioritize efforts to improve the situation.

Automated Grid Disruption Response System: Robust Adaptive Topology Control (RATC)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

GENI Project: The RATC research team is using topology control as a mechanism to improve system operations and manage disruptions within the electric grid. The grid is subject to interruption from cascading faults caused by extreme operating conditions, malicious external attacks, and intermittent electricity generation from renewable energy sources. The RATC system is capable of detecting, classifying, and responding to grid disturbances by reconfiguring the grid in order to maintain economically efficient operations while guaranteeing reliability. The RATC system would help prevent future power outages, which account for roughly $80 billion in losses for businesses and consumers each year. Minimizing the time it takes for the grid to respond to expensive interruptions will also make it easier to integrate intermittent renewable energy sources into the grid.

Development of a thermal and electrical energy management in residential building micro-grid  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Global warming and pressing concern about CO2 emission along with increasing fuel and oil cost have brought about great challenges for energy companies and homeowners. In this regard a potential candidate solution is widely used for Distributed Energy Resources which are capable of providing high quality low-cost heat and power to off-grid or remote facilities. To appropriately manage thermal and electrical energy a Smart Energy Management System (SEMS) with hierarchical control scheme has been presented. The developed SEMS model results in mixed integer non-linear programming optimization problem with the objective function of minimizing the operation cost as well as considering emissions. Moreover the optimization problem has been solved for deterministic and stochastic scheduling algorithms. The novelty of this work is basically reliant on using data mining approach to reduce forecasting error. Several case studies have been carried out to evaluate the performance of proposed data mining method on both energy cost and expected cost.

Grid regulation services for energy storage devices based on grid frequency  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Disclosed herein are representative embodiments of methods, apparatus, and systems for charging and discharging an energy storage device connected to an electrical power distribution system. In one exemplary embodiment, a controller monitors electrical characteristics of an electrical power distribution system and provides an output to a bi-directional charger causing the charger to charge or discharge an energy storage device (e.g., a battery in a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV)). The controller can help stabilize the electrical power distribution system by increasing the charging rate when there is excess power in the electrical power distribution system (e.g., when the frequency of an AC power grid exceeds an average value), or by discharging power from the energy storage device to stabilize the grid when there is a shortage of power in the electrical power distribution system (e.g., when the frequency of an AC power grid is below an average value).

Model checking grid security  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Grid computing is one of the leading forms of high performance computing. Security in the grid environment is a challenging issue that can be characterized as a complex system involving many subtleties that may lead designers into error. This is similar to what happens with security protocols where automatic verification techniques (specially model checking) have been proved to be very useful at design time. This paper proposes a formal verification methodology based on model checking that can be applied to host security verification for grid systems. The proposed methodology must take into account that a grid system can be described as a parameterized model, and security requirements can be described as hyperproperties. Unfortunately, both parameterized model checking and hyperproperty verification are, in general, undecidable. However, it has been proved that this problem becomes decidable when jobs have some regularities in their organization. Therefore, this paper presents a verification methodology that reduces a given grid system model to a model to which it is possible to apply a cutoff theorem (i.e., a requirement is satisfied by a system with an arbitrary number of jobs if and only if it is satisfied by a system with a finite number of jobs up to a cutoff size). This methodology is supported by a set of theorems, whose proofs are presented in this paper. The methodology is explained by means of a case study: the Condor system.

Essential Grid Workflow Monitoring Elements  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Troubleshooting Grid workflows is difficult. A typicalworkflow involves a large number of components networks, middleware,hosts, etc. that can fail. Even when monitoring data from all thesecomponents is accessible, it is hard to tell whether failures andanomalies in these components are related toa given workflow. For theGrid to be truly usable, much of this uncertainty must be elim- inated.We propose two new Grid monitoring elements, Grid workflow identifiersand consistent component lifecycle events, that will make Gridtroubleshooting easier, and thus make Grids more usable, by simplifyingthe correlation of Grid monitoring data with a particular Gridworkflow.

Window air conditioners (A/Cs) are an inexpensive alternative to central systems, and are sold in greater numbers each year than all other residential cooling systems. They are purchased to cool a specific room and are easy for anyone to install. In contrast to these benefits, window A/Cs come at a cost-they operate less efficiently (using more energy to do the same cooling) than most other residential A/C systems.

The grid will simplify access to the diverse computing, storage, network, and visualization resources, and will enable the coordinated use of shared resources regardless of location. To match existing hardware platforms, required security services, and current simulation practices, the Globus MetaComputing Toolkit was selected to provide core grid services. The ASCI grid extends Globus functionality by operating as an independent grid, incorporating Kerberos-based security, interfacing to Sandia's Cplant{trademark},and extending job monitoring services. To fully meet ASCI's needs, the architecture layers distributed work management and criteria-driven resource selection services on top of Globus. These services simplify the grid interface by allowing users to simply request ''run code X anywhere''. This paper describes the initial design and prototype of the ASCI grid.

The Global Grid  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

This paper puts forward the vision that a natural future stage of the electricity network could be a grid spanning the whole planet and connecting most of the large power plants in the world: this is the Global Grid. The main driving force behind the Global Grid will be the harvesting of remote renewable sources, and its key infrastructure element will be the high capacity long transmission lines. Wind farms and solar power plants will supply load centers with green power over long distances. This paper focuses on the introduction of the concept, showing that a globally interconnected network can be technologically feasible and economically competitive. We further highlight the multiple opportunities emerging from a global electricity network such as smoothing the renewable energy supply and electricity demand, reducing the need for bulk storage, and reducing the volatility of the energy prices. We also discuss possible investment mechanisms and operating schemes. Among others, we envision in such a system a global power market and the establishment of two new coordinating bodies, the Global Regulator and the Global System Operator.

Grid Integration of Aggregated Demand Response, Part 1: Load Availability Grid Integration of Aggregated Demand Response, Part 1: Load Availability Profiles and Constraints for the Western Interconnection Title Grid Integration of Aggregated Demand Response, Part 1: Load Availability Profiles and Constraints for the Western Interconnection Publication Type Report LBNL Report Number LBNL-6417E Year of Publication 2013 Authors Olsen, Daniel, Nance Matson, Michael D. Sohn, Cody Rose, Junqiao Han Dudley, Sasank Goli, Sila Kiliccote, Marissa Hummon, David Palchak, Paul Denholm, Jennie Jorgenson, and Ookie Ma Date Published 09/2013 Abstract Demand response (DR) has the potential to improve electric grid reliability and reduce system operation costs. However, including DR in grid modeling can be difficult due to its variable and non-traditional response characteristics, compared to traditional generation. Therefore, efforts to value the participation of DR in procurement of grid services have been limited. In this report, we present methods and tools for predicting demand response availability profiles, representing their capability to participate in capacity, energy, and ancillary services. With the addition of response characteristics mimicking those of generation, the resulting profiles will help in the valuation of the participation of demand response through production cost modeling, which informs infrastructure and investment planning.

Effect of different grid shapes in wireless mesh network-genetic algorithm system  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Grid computing have emerged as scientific and technical work, where geographically distributed computers, are used to create virtual supercomputers of vast amount of computing capacity able to solve complex problems in less time than before. Thus, within the last years we have witnessed how grid computing has helped to achieve breakthroughs in meteorology, physics and other computing-intensive fields. Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are particularly suited for providing the communications required for a robust, self-healing grid architecture. The good performance and operability of WMNs depend on placement of mesh routers nodes in the geographical deployment area. In this paper, we consider the grid topology and evaluate the performance of WMN-GA system for node placement problem in WMNs. We consider different distributions of mesh clients and different grid shapes. The simulation results show the effect of grid shapes in the performance of WMN-GA. The system performs better for normal distribution.

These systems are made possible by two-way communication technology and computer processing that has been used for decades in other industries. They are beginning to be used on electricity networks, from the power plants and wind farms all the way to the consumers of electricity in homes and businesses. They offer many benefits to utilities and consumers -- mostly seen in big improvements in energy efficiency on the electricity grid and in the energy users' homes and offices.

Synchrony-optimized power grids  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

We investigate synchronization in power grids, which we assume to be modeled by a network of Kuramoto oscillators with inertia. More specifically, we study the optimization of the power grid topology to favor the network synchronization. We introduce a rewiring algorithm which consists basically in a hill climb scheme where the edges of the network are swapped in order enhance the main measures of synchronization. As a byproduct of the optimization algorithm, we typically have also the anticipation of the synchronization onset for the optimized network. We perform several robustness tests for the synchrony-optimized power grids, including the impact of consumption peaks. In our analyses, we investigate synthetic random networks, which we consider as hypothetical decentralized power generation situations, and also a network based in the actual power grid of Spain, which corresponds to the current paradigm of centralized power grids. The synchrony-optimized power grids obtained by our algorithm have some intere...

Rectangle Free Coloring of Grids  

E-Print Network [OSTI]

A two-dimensional \\emph{grid} is a set $\\Gnm = [n]\\times[m]$. A grid $\\Gnm$ is \\emph{$c$-colorable} if there is a function $\\chi_{n,m}: \\Gnm \\to [c]$ such that there are no rectangles with all four corners the same color. We address the following question: for which values of $n$ and $m$ is $\\Gnm$ $c$-colorable? This problem can be viewed as a bipartite Ramsey problem and is related to a the Gallai-Witt theorem (also called the multidimensioanl Van Der Waerden's Theorem). We determine (1) \\emph{exactly} which grids are 2-colorable, (2) \\emph{exactly} which grids are 3-colorable, and (3) (assuming a conjecture) \\emph{exactly} which grids are 4-colorable. We use combinatorics, finite fields, and tournament graphs.

Off-grid Solar PV Power for Humanitarian Action: From Emergency Communications to Refugee Camp Micro-grids  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The need for new innovative technologies to support humanitarian action is evident today. Efficient and economic technologies properly deployed and integrated should mitigate some of the potential negative social effects of poor refugee camp infrastructure engineering. The body of the paper identifies off-grid solar Photovoltaic (PV) and solar PV hybrid packaged systems that are applicable to emergency relief activities, refugee camp activities and micro-grid development. The paper's concentration on off-grid power, the description of these engineered systems by humanitarian activity and the identification of the different engineered packaged solutions is aimed at stimulating a discussion to help scale more appropriate technologies for humanitarian action. The paper concludes with a discussion of present and future private sector business strategies to support scalability of this new and growing market.

National Smart Water Grid  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The United States repeatedly experiences floods along the Midwest's large rivers and droughts in the arid Western States that cause traumatic environmental conditions with huge economic impact. With an integrated approach and solution these problems can be alleviated. Tapping into the Mississippi River and its tributaries, the world's third largest fresh water river system, during flood events will mitigate the damage of flooding and provide a new source of fresh water to the Western States. The trend of increased flooding on the Midwest's large rivers is supported by a growing body of scientific literature. The Colorado River Basin and the western states are experiencing a protracted multi-year drought. Fresh water can be pumped via pipelines from areas of overabundance/flood to areas of drought or high demand. Calculations document 10 to 60 million acre-feet (maf) of fresh water per flood event can be captured from the Midwest's Rivers and pumped via pipelines to the Colorado River and introduced upstream of Lake Powell, Utah, to destinations near Denver, Colorado, and used in areas along the pipelines. Water users of the Colorado River include the cities in southern Nevada, southern California, northern Arizona, Colorado, Utah, Indian Tribes, and Mexico. The proposed start and end points, and routes of the pipelines are documented, including information on right-of-ways necessary for state and federal permits. A National Smart Water Grid{trademark} (NSWG) Project will create thousands of new jobs for construction, operation, and maintenance and save billions in drought and flood damage reparations tax dollars. The socio-economic benefits of NWSG include decreased flooding in the Midwest; increased agriculture, and recreation and tourism; improved national security, transportation, and fishery and wildlife habitats; mitigated regional climate change and global warming such as increased carbon capture; decreased salinity in Colorado River water crossing the US-Mexico border; and decreased eutrophication (excessive plant growth and decay) in the Gulf of Mexico to name a few. The National Smart Water Grid{trademark} will pay for itself in a single major flood event.

GridWise: Transforming the Power Grid with Information Technology  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

GridWise is a vision for the future electric system shared by a new DOE initiative and an industry alliance. GridWise is built upon the fundamental premise that information technology will profoundly transform the planning and operation of the power grid, just at is has changed business, education, and entertainment. The electric power system has served us remarkably well for over half a century. However, with business-as-usual solutions, the U.S. will invest around $450 billion in conventional electric infrastructuregeneration, transmission, and distributionover the next 20 years just to meet demand for a growing population and economy. Even more investment will be needed to relieve the growing backlog of deferred transmission additions. Since the mortgage on infrastructure is a major component of electric rates, economic prosperity and our way of life depend upon minimizing the need for new infrastructure by increasing the utilization of these assets. This paper discusses the GridWise vision and describes some example technologies and how they are woven together to fundamentally alter the way the power grid works. The benefits of an information-rich power system and key elements of the DOEs new GridWise initiative are also presented.

Broader source: All U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office Webpages (Extended Search)

Generator Modeling Generator Modeling NREL works with the solar and wind industries to provide utilities and grid operators with generator models to help them analyze the impact of variable generation on power system performance and reliability. As the amount of variable generation increases, the need for such models increases. Ensuring the models are as generic as possible allows for ease of use, model validation, data exchange, and analysis. To address this need, NREL researchers are developing generic dynamic models of wind and solar power plants. NREL's dynamic modeling efforts include: Collecting wind plant output data with corresponding wind resource data (speed, direction, and air density) from meteorological towers and performing multivariate analysis of the data to develop an equivalent wind

A HYBRID SOLAR WIND MODEL OF THE CESE+HLL METHOD WITH A YIN-YANG OVERSET GRID AND AN AMR GRID  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A hybrid three-dimensional (3D) MHD model for solar wind study is proposed in the present paper with combined grid systems and solvers. The computational domain from the Sun to Earth space is decomposed into the near-Sun and off-Sun domains, which are respectively constructed with a Yin-Yang overset grid system and a Cartesian adaptive mesh refinement (AMR) grid system and coupled with a domain connection interface in the overlapping region between the near-Sun and off-Sun domains. The space-time conservation element and solution element method is used in the near-Sun domain, while the Harten-Lax-Leer method is employed in the off-Sun domain. The Yin-Yang overset grid can avoid well-known singularity and polar grid convergence problems and its body-fitting property helps achieve high-quality resolution near the solar surface. The block structured AMR Cartesian grid can automatically capture far-field plasma flow features, such as heliospheric current sheets and shock waves, and at the same time, it can save significant computational resources compared to the uniformly structured Cartesian grid. A numerical study of the solar wind structure for Carrington rotation 2069 shows that the newly developed hybrid MHD solar wind model successfully produces many realistic features of the background solar wind, in both the solar corona and interplanetary space, by comparisons with multiple solar and interplanetary observations.

Convectively cooled electrical grid structure  

DOE Patents [OSTI]

Undesirable distortions of electrical grid conductors from thermal cycling are minimized and related problems such as unwanted thermionic emission and structural failure from overheating are avoided by providing for a flow of fluid coolant within each conductor. The conductors are secured at each end to separate flexible support elements which accommodate to individual longitudinal expansion and contraction of each conductor while resisting lateral displacements, the coolant flow preferably being directed into and out of each conductor through passages in the flexible support elements. The grid may have a modular or divided construction which facilitates manufacture and repairs.

FermiGrid - experience and future plans  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Fermilab supports a scientific program that includes experiments and scientists located across the globe. In order to better serve this community, Fermilab has placed its production computer resources in a Campus Grid infrastructure called 'FermiGrid'. The FermiGrid infrastructure allows the large experiments at Fermilab to have priority access to their own resources, enables sharing of these resources in an opportunistic fashion, and movement of work (jobs, data) between the Campus Grid and National Grids such as Open Science Grid and the WLCG. FermiGrid resources support multiple Virtual Organizations (VOs), including VOs from the Open Science Grid (OSG), EGEE and the Worldwide LHC Computing Grid Collaboration (WLCG). Fermilab also makes leading contributions to the Open Science Grid in the areas of accounting, batch computing, grid security, job management, resource selection, site infrastructure, storage management, and VO services. Through the FermiGrid interfaces, authenticated and authorized VOs and individuals may access our core grid services, the 10,000+ Fermilab resident CPUs, near-petabyte (including CMS) online disk pools and the multi-petabyte Fermilab Mass Storage System. These core grid services include a site wide Globus gatekeeper, VO management services for several VOs, Fermilab site authorization services, grid user mapping services, as well as job accounting and monitoring, resource selection and data movement services. Access to these services is via standard and well-supported grid interfaces. We will report on the user experience of using the FermiGrid campus infrastructure interfaced to a national cyberinfrastructure--the successes and the problems.

Grid Service for User-Centric Job  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

The User Centric Monitoring (UCM) project was aimed at developing a toolkit that provides the Virtual Organization (VO) with tools to build systems that serve a rich set of intuitive job and application monitoring information to the VOs scientists so that they can be more productive. The tools help collect and serve the status and error information through a Web interface. The proposed UCM toolkit is composed of a set of library functions, a database schema, and a Web portal that will collect and filter available job monitoring information from various resources and present it to users in a user-centric view rather than and administrative-centric point of view. The goal is to create a set of tools that can be used to augment grid job scheduling systems, meta-schedulers, applications, and script sets in order to provide the UCM information. The system provides various levels of an application programming interface that is useful through out the Grid environment and at the application level for logging messages, which are combined with the other user-centric monitoring information in a abstracted data store. A planned monitoring portal will also dynamically present the information to users in their web browser in a secure manor, which is also easily integrated into any JSR-compliant portal deployment that a VO might employ. The UCM is meant to be flexible and modular in the ways that it can be adopted to give the VO many choices to build a solution that works for them with special attention to the smaller VOs that do not have the resources to implement home-grown solutions.

A framework model for grid security  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Computational grids can be considered as tiered objects; following a widespread terminology, cluster grids may be grouped into enterprise grids, that in turn may belong to global grids. Therefore, computing grid security has to be tiered too, with the ground level remaining the OS one. In this work, we introduce a sort of unified approach, an overall architectural framework for access control to grid resources, and one that adheres as much as possible to current security principles. Current grid security implementations are viewed in the light of this model, their main drawbacks are described, and we show how our proposal is able to avoid them. We believe that a main strategy could be to adopt both PKI and PMI infrastructures at the grid layer, ensuring that an adequate transfer of authentication and authorization will be made between the Virtual Organization and Resource Provider layers. This can be achieved by extending those features at the OS layer as system applications and services.

Earth resistivity measurement near substation ground grids  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Proper substation grounding grid design requires good, accurate soil resistivity measurements. This data is essential to model the substation ground grid to design a safe ground grid with a satisfactory ground grid resistance at minimum cost. For substations with several decades of service, there is some concern that a grid may have deteriorated, been damaged during equipment installation or excavation, or that initial soil resistivity measurements were lost or may not have been correctly performed. Ground grid conductors change the substation surface voltage distribution. Any voltage measurements taken at the complete substation will also vary from the tests made without conductors present. During testing, current was injected in the soil by probes placed near the ground grid. The current tends to follow the ground grid conductors since copper is a far better conductor than the soil it is placed in. Resistance readings near grids will be lower than readings in undisturbed soil. Since computer models were unavailable for many years, analyzing the effect of the grid conductors on soil resistivity measurements was very difficult. As a result, soil resistivity measurements made close to substations were of little use to the engineer unless some means of correcting the measured values could be developed. This paper will present results of soil resistivity measurements near a substation ground grid before and after a ground grid has been installed and describes a means of calculating the undisturbed soil model.

The impact of large-scale distributed generation on power grid and microgrids  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract With the widespread application of distributed generation (DG), their utilization rate is increasingly higher and higher in the power system. This paper analyzes the static and transient impact of large-scale \\{DGs\\} integrated with the distribution network load models on the power grid. Studies of static voltage stability based on continuous power flow method have shown that a reasonable choice of DG's power grid position will help to improve the stability of the system. The transient simulation results show that these induction motors in the distribution network would make effect on the start-up and fault conditions, which may cause the instability of \\{DGs\\} and grid. The simulation results show that modeling of distributed generations and loads can help in-depth study of the microgrid stability and protection design.

National Grid Deep Energy Retrofit Pilot, Massachusetts and Rhode Island (Fact Sheet)  

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

Between December, 2009 and December, 2012 42 deep energy retrofit (DER) projects were completed through a DER pilot program sponsored by National Grid and conducted in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. 37 of these projects were comprehensive retrofits while 5 were partial DERs, meaning that high performance retrofit was implemented for a single major enclosure component or a limited number of major enclosure components. The 42 DER projects represent 60 units of housing. The comprehensive projects all implemented a consistent "package" of measures in terms of the performance targeted for major building components. Projects exhibited some variations in the approach to implementing the retrofit package. Pre- and post-retrofit air leakage measurements were performed for each of the projects. Each project also reported information about project costs including identification of energy-related costs. Post-retrofit energy-use data was obtained for 29 of the DER projects. Post-retrofit energy use was analyzed based on the net energy used by the DER project regardless of whether the energy was generated on site or delivered to the site. Homeowner surveys were returned by 12 of the pilot participants. Based on the community experience, this DER package is expected to result in yearly source energy use near 110 MMBtu/year or approximately 40% below the Northeast regional average. Larger to medium sized homes that successful implement these retrofits can be expected to achieve source EUI that is comparable to Passive House targets for new construction. The community of DER projects show post-retrofit airtightness below 1.5 ACH50 to be eminently achievable.

SciTech Connect (OSTI)

A smart grid uses digital power control and communication technology to improve the reliability, security, flexibility, and efficiency of the electric system, from large generation through the delivery systems to electricity consumers and a growing number of distributed generation and storage resources. To convey progress made in achieving the vision of a smart grid, this report uses a set of six characteristics derived from the National Energy Technology Laboratory Modern Grid Strategy. The Smart Grid Status and Metrics Report defines and examines 21 metrics that collectively provide insight into the grids capacity to embody these characteristics. This appendix presents papers covering each of the 21 metrics identified in Section 2.1 of the Smart Grid Status and Metrics Report. These metric papers were prepared in advance of the main body of the report and collectively form its informational backbone.

The 20th-century engineering feat that most improved the quality of human life, the electric power system, now faces discipline-spanning challenges that threaten that distinction. So multilayered and complex that they resemble ecosystems, power grids face risks from their interdependent cyber, physical, social and economic layers. Only with a holistic understanding of the dynamics of electricity infrastructure and human operators, automatic controls, electricity markets, weather, climate and policy can we fortify worldwide access to electricity.
