A Reactive Future modeling

Our project goal is to propose non-wire solutions to satisfy the needs of the consumers since the substations' solutions are very expensive. The suggested method consists of using integration capacity analysis to find the constraints of the system, then use locational value analysis to find non-wire solutions to the problem that beat the current bid.
There is a place in Idaho where the load concentrations are a long distance from substations, making voltage drop, cold load pick up and protection a challenge. In response to new ideals from consumers regarding the utility companies we are conducting research into providing non-wire solutions and reform how the utility plays a role in energy distribution.
|Design Process (First Term)|
|First Steps||The first step in our design will be determining the integration capacity of the circuit. Integration Capacity” is the amount of DER capacity that can be installed on a distribution circuit without requiring significant
distribution upgrades. From our locational value analysis research we know that the most successful locations are where the installation of DER’s will not require significant upgrades.
