ISO-New England (Synchrophasor Infrastructure and Data Utilization (SIDU) in the ISO New England Transmission Region)
ISO-New England (ISO-NE) and seven of its transmission owners are installing synchrophasor and phasor data concentrator (PDC) devices across the six states in the New England control area. These devices, in conjunction with a set of new applications, enable further improvements of the reliability of the transmission grid and prevent the spread of local disturbances to the neighboring regions through enhanced monitoring capabilities and increased situational awareness. This project deploys phasor measurement units (PMUs), PDCs, and communication infrastructure in New England. Advanced transmission software determines real-time grid stability margins. This technology increases grid operators visibility of bulk power market conditions in near-real-time, enables earlier detection of disturbances that could result in instabilities or outages, and facilitates sharing of information with neighboring regional control areas. Access to better system operating information allows ISO-NE engineers to improve power system models and analytical techniques, enhancing the overall reliability of the ISO-NE system.

The Effect on Electricity Consumption of the Commonwealth Edison Customer Application Program Pilot: Phase 1
This report describes the Phase 1 analysis of some aspects of residential customers' response to Commonwealth Edison's (ComEd) Customer Application Plan (CAP) as well as the plans to extend the analysis and evaluate additional aspects of that plan during Phase 2 of the evaluation. Appendices: This report provides appendices that support Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) report 1022703, which describes the Phase 1 analysis of some aspects of residential customers' response to Commonwealth Edison's Customer Application Plan (CAP). This report contains technical materials that describe in detail all of the methods employed in conducting the Phase 1 analysis and presents the results of the application of those methods. Demand response is becoming increasingly important as an adaptation to the rising costs of building new generation plants, siting new transmission and distribution facilities, and dealing with a variety of environmental issues, notably including climate change. Improvements in communications and controls reduce costs and extend the range of potentially responsive loads. Many regulators are pressing utilities to fully use a range of demand response solutions. An analysis of the efficacy of smart grid technologies in facilitating demand response is essential to determining the ways in which these technologies should be used. This report describes the methods by which EPRI researchers are evaluating the efficacy of smart grid technologies in providing demand response to Commonwealth Edison and provides the first set of results from this evaluation. 4819-effect-electricity-commonwealth-program-pilot-phase-1.pdf
