Price Server System for Automated Critical Peak Pricing

June 3, 2005 - 12:00pm

Overview of current California Energy Commission (CEC)/Demand Response Research Center (DRRC) Auto-CPP project:   This summer, some select commercial CPP customers of PG&E will have the option of joining the Automated Critical Peak Pricing pilot.  The pilot will have the same tariffs as standard CPP programs, but will include an added feature: automated shedding of electric loads.    Through use of the Price Server System, day-ahead CPP event signals initiated by PG&E will ultimately cause electric loads to be automatically curtailed on commercial customer sites.  These optional predetermined shed strategies will occur without human intervention.     To reach the next level of progress in Automated DR and CPP research, it is necessary to create a next generation Price Server with the following attributes:  1) Flexibility  2) High availability/reliability  3) Scalability  4) Security  The presentation will cover the approach (in progress) toward reaching  these goals.
