S&C Builds Ameren a Microgrid to Study Distribution Use Cases

With a 12-kV microgrid that has multiple levels of control, Ameren Illinois is now able to research how to use microgrids to supply power at the distribution level for future endeavors.

For the project, S&C developed a means to “black start” the microgrid without the need for a reference voltage from the utility source. Learn from this case study how S&C’s “first-of-its-kind” engineering effort also developed adaptive protection and control software to help transition Ameren’s multiple generation sources into and out of “microgrid mode” without creating an outage.
