Abstract:

Odyssian Technology and its team of highly regarded experts propose to develop advanced distribution and control technology for hybrid intelligent microgrids. The novelty of their proposed concept is in the use of a wireless mesh network to control distributed generation assets in concert with system loads through multi-layer intelligent load shedding. A technology proprietary to Odyssian Technology called eBoardT will be further developed and adapted to provide load control through the use of intelligent load shedding at the device and small area network levels. Odyssian's partner EmNet has a proprietary low power wireless network technology that will be adapted to achieve a highly responsive intelligent wireless power control network. Another unique aspect of this proposed program is the coupling of network science with power engineering to an extent not commonly demonstrated. Dr. Chapman from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with expertise in power control has collaborated with Dr. Lemmon from Notre Dame University with expertise in network control to develop a concept for intelligent control of electric power microgrids. This concept offers a novel solution of an integrated intelligent control design that allows for the plug-and-play of a diverse range of various distributed power generation assets.
