Public Service Company of New Mexico and its partners will co-locate a 2.8 MWh advanced lead acid battery with a separately installed 500kW solar photovoltaic (PV) plant to create a dispatchable distributed generation resource. This hybrid resource will provide simultaneous voltage smoothing and peak shifting through advanced control algorithms and switch between two configurations, end-of-feeder and beginning-of- feeder. Data collection and analysis will produce information for a wide range of applications including grid upgrade deferral. The project will also yield modeling tools used to optimize battery system control algorithms and further the understanding of feeders with storage and distributed generation. The site is located in southeast Albuquerque and is easily accessible for viewing by the public.
