Title: Distributed Resource Energy Analysis and Management System (DREAMS) Development for Real-time Grid Operations

This project supports development of the next generation, integrated energy management infrastructure (EMS) able to incorporate advance visualization of behind-the-meter distributed resource information and probabilistic renewable energy generation forecasts to inform real-time operational decisions. The project involves end-users and active feedback from an Utility Advisory Team (UAT) to help inform how information can be used to enhance operational functions (e.g. unit commitment, load forecasting, Automatic Generation Control (AGC) reserve monitoring, ramp alerts) within two major EMS platforms. Objectives include: • Engaging utility operations personnel to develop user input on displays, set expectations, test and review • Developing ease of use and timeliness metrics for measuring enhancements • Developing prototype integrated capabilities within two operational EMS environments • Demonstrating an integrated decision analysis platform with real-time wind and solar forecasting information and timely distributed resource information • Seamlessly integrating new 4-dimensional information into operations without increasing workload and complexities • Developing sufficient analytics to inform and confidently transform and adopt new operating practices and procedures • Disseminating project lessons learned through industry sponsored workshops and conferences • Building on collaborative utility-vendor partnership and industry capabilities
