The focus of this project is to develop a representative computer simulation model of the electrical distribution system of the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus. The model build process consists of forming the grid topology, inputting electrical asset characteristics, and calibrating model efficacy using actual load data. Circuit monitoring devices will be placed at strategic locations to gather electrical feeder loading and performance data. Backed by this real-world data, the calibrated computer model will provide a holistic systems view for making informed decisions and optimizing the roadmap for UH Manoa’s renewable energy future.
