The Center for the Commercialization of Electric Technologies Smart Grid Demonstration Project is a U.S. Department of Energy Smart Grid Demonstration Project which is based in Austin, Texas.

Overview

Manage the fluctuations in wind power in the large Elecvtric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT) transmission grid through better system monitoring capabilities, enhanced operator visualization, and improved load management. Project includes the installation of synchrophasors to enhance monitoring of grid conditions as variable wind resources move through the system, and the use of integrated Smart Grid technologies, including household and community battery storage, smart meters and appliances, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, and homes equipped with 1-3 kW solar photovoltaics.
