Ameren Unveils Advanced Distributed Energy Microgrid

Ameren Corp. has completed an advanced utility-scale microgrid . The $5 million facility, located at Ameren's Technology Applications Center (TAC) adjacent to the University of Illinois campus in Champaign, Ill., is capable of serving paying customer loads on a utility distribution feeder. As larger companies and high energy users seek to become more energy independent, Ameren built the microgrid facility to test monitoring and control methods for aggregating clean, renewable energy sources — wind, solar , and natural gas — with advanced automation and battery storage. The Ameren microgrid operates at utility-scale voltages, between 4 kV and 34.5 kV, with multiple levels of control. It is capable of seamlessly transitioning the power source for an entire distribution circuit from distributed generation sources to the traditional grid. This concept, known as islanding, enab...
