Addressing Radial Feeder Challenges with Microgrid Value Stacking

ABB Microgrid Business Case

Radial feeders are often the most unreliable network configuration in any given distribution utility circuit portfolio. Not only do these feeders face reliability issues, but also, many are experiencing voltage challenges due to the increased solar Photovoltaic (PV) penetration.

ABB Microgrid solutions help distribution utilities by providing a reliable, stable and affordable power with renewables and energy storage technology. The economic and operating benefits include:

  • Defer substation capacity upgrade
  • Improve reliability performance
  • Reduce capacity and transmission charges
  • High reduction of operational and maintenance cost related to voltage regulation issues
