Distributed Energy Technology Simulator Microturbine Demonstration 1. Introduction The National Rural Energy Cooperative Association (NRECA) and Sandia National Laboratories have supported an effort to develop a device that will simulate the technical and economic performance of distributed energy technologies. NRECA’s Cooperative Research Network (CRN) is taking the lead in this project to eventually provide its co-op members and customers with a means of assessing competitive distributed energy technologies for their peak-shaving capabilities. This low-cost, portable device is connected at a customer’s site and will mimic up to five different onsite generation and storage technologies: Figure 1. Simulator Components: AC Monitor (top) and Embedded Controller (bottom) Peak-shaving battery Peak-shaving diesel generator Power quality battery Microturbine Phosphoric acid fuel cell Energetics, Inc. has developed and validated these five modules. This validation stage involves comparing the module to an operating distributed energy device with the goal of creating a module that properly characterizes its operation.
