September 2015
U.S. Department of Energy
SGDG, CCET, NETL, Texas, Synchrophasors

The Center for Commercialization of Electric Technologies (CCET) is demonstrating new response mechanisms to help integrate large amounts of highly variable wind generation into the ERCOT grid by utilizing better system monitoring capabilities, enhanced operator visualization, and improved load management. Improved load management includes the use of smart grid technologies at Texas facilities: Reese Technology Center in Lubbock, Mueller Development in Austin, the Harmony solar community, north of Houston and residential consumers in the Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston areas.
