Abstract:  Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) are continuously increasing in the power systems. In some states, DERs have grown much faster than others and they pose a variety of planning and operational challenges. For example, Hawaii is already observing reserve power flow from Distribution to Transmission and California had to develop a flexible ramping product to address the fast generation ramping needs at sunset. Energy analysts project this trend of increasing DER penetration to continue and there is a strong business/policy advocacy effort to keep the momentum going. With the decreasing price of DERs and given the right incentives, the break-even point can be reached where DERs growth can explode in the AEP footprint as well. It is therefore very important to model DERs and study their impact on system loading, stability, transients, and voltage/frequency regulation at high penetration levels.
