The NREL project team will utilize field verification to improve the ability to model and understand the impacts of high-penetration PV on electric utility systems and develop solutions to ease high-penetration PV deployments. The team will develop and verify advanced modeling and simulation methods for distribution system planning and operations; define the impacts of high penetration levels of PV on the distribution and transmission grid with high-fidelity simulation tools; develop a handbook of validated models and solutions for the stakeholder community; and provide simulation-assisted evaluation/de-risking of technology solutions to enable successful integration of high levels of PV.
