The Perfect Power Prototype for the Illinois Institute of Technology


Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) in collaboration with Exelon, the Galvin Electricity Initiative (GEI), S&C Electric and other key partners (the team) propose to develop, demonstrate, promote, and commercialize a system and supporting technologies that will achieve "Perfect Power" at the main campus of IIT. This will be a self healing, learning and self-aware Smart Grid that identifies and isolates faults, reroutes power to accommodate load changes and generation, and dispatches generation and reduces demand based on price signals, weather forecasts, and loss of grid power.
