GridLAB-D™ is a new power distribution system simulation and analysis tool that provides valuable information to users who design and operate distribution systems, and to utilities that wish to take advantage of the latest energy technologies. It incorporates the most advanced modeling techniques, with high-performance algorithms to deliver the best in end-use modeling. GridLAB-D™ is coupled with distribution automation models and software integration tools for users of many power system analysis tools. GridLAB-D™ examines the interplay of every part of a distribution system with every other. GridLAB-D™ does not require the use of reduced-order models for the aggregate behavior of consumer or electrical systems. It becomes an essential tool that enables industry and government planners to design more effective and efficient programs to manage load growth and improve system reliability.
After the introduction to the tool participants will get the opportunity to present Questions to the presenter
Jason Fuller, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Jason Fuller joined the staff at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) as a research engineer in 2009. He is an active member in IEEE, Chair of the Distribution System Analysis Subcommittee and Chair of the Test Feeder Working Group. Mr. Fuller’s area of interest includes distribution automation and analysis, and integration of advanced distribution-level technologies such as distributed generation and demand response. His main area of work has been in the development and application of GridLAB-D, a power-flow simulation environment designed for smart grid applications and developed at PNNL. He is currently the Technical Group Manager of the Electricity Infrastructure group, a dynamic team of 70+ power engineers working on cutting edge power system research.
