      Microgrid Maintains Power Supply During Emergency Simulation

      The Bronzeville Community Microgrid can keep power flowing in an emergency, ComEd recently announced after conducting a test. The “simulated islanding” test checked the resiliency of the microgrid by mimicking events that have the potential to affect power delivery, including weather calamities,  cyber attacks and acts of terrorism. The tests ComEd conducted demonstrated the microgrid’s ability to provide power in island mode while drawing upon distributed energy resources (DER), including battery energy storage and solar photovoltaic PV, to serve customers.
