The second of the two current studies is the Intelligent Microgrid Project. BCIT’s Group for Advanced Information Technology (GAIT) has undertaken to develop and study a smart microgrid on the BCIT campus. A mini version of the power grid managed by utility companies, the campus microgrid provides a test site for the study of “smart” technologies, including meters and appliances. Both of these technologies have been installed in AFRESH Home. The project studies how localized power generation sites (solar, wind, and thermal) can be integrated into the microgrid to allow for the development of command and control models for distributed generation and integration of such alternative energy sources into the future Intelligent Grid of British Columbia.
