DE-FOA-0001325: Modification 0001: RFI - Research and Development Needs for Wind Systems Utilizing Controllable Grid Simulators and Full Scale Hardware in the Loop Testing

This RFI is being modified to extend the date for response to May 27, 2015, 5:00 PM EDT.

Through a balanced portfolio approach, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Wind and Water Power Technologies Office’s (WWPTO’s) Wind Power Program, herein referred to as the “Wind Program”, makes strategic investments in the Power Systems Integration subprogram, including transformational technology innovations that seek to maximize generation from wind power resources while addressing key grid level integration, operations, and planning challenges. The Wind Program addresses technology needs and opportunities in wind integration, which would otherwise not be addressed by the private sector on its own.

The purpose of this Request for Information (RFI) is to solicit feedback from industry, utilities (investor-owned, municipal, and electric cooperative), academia, research laboratories, government agencies, and other stakeholders on issues related to the use of controllable grid simulators to perform full scale wind-grid system research, development, and testing. Such research, development, and testing could include the application of Power Hardware-In-the-Loop (PHIL) testing capabilities to the wind technology market and the associated grid integration impacts.

Responses to this RFI must be submitted electronically to GridSimRFI@ee.doe.gov no later than 5:00pm (EDT) on May 27, 2015. Responses must be provided as attachments to an email.

Please identify your answers by responding to a specific question or topic if possible. Respondents may answer as many or as few questions as they wish.

This is solely a request for information and not a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). EERE is not accepting applications through this RFI. DOE will not respond to questions regarding this RFI.
