Abstract

This paper discusses the hardware implementation of distributed control strategies that could be used to enable the utilization of distributed energy resources for the provision of grid support services. Although the capacity of individual resources may be small, the large number of them present in many distribution networks suggests that under proper coordination and control, the collective capacity of the resources could provide useful system-level ancillary services. The software necessary to implement the control strategies is discussed and experimental results are presented.
