Many utilities are interested in padmount energy storage devices that might be used in
association with one to a few homes. These systems are envisioned to provide a wide variety of services, including energy shifting, peak shaving, voltage support, and customer backup during outage. This technical update is an evaluation of how the DNP3 application profile that was just released might be utilized to facilitate the integration of padmount storage systems in a standards-based way. Six utilities that are currently implementing this kind of distributed energy storage system have worked together with EPRI to evaluate their functional requirements against the present DNP3 standard. These utilities are at various stages of development in their respective projects with some at the conceptual phase and others with nearly complete functional specifications. This technical update provides an evaluation of how well the DNP3 communication standard may be used to meet the needs of the participating utilities’ planned implementations. Full Document
