The limited penetration of microgrids into the nation's electric infrastructure can be attributed to uncertainty, both true and perceived, associated with designing, building and operating the systems. The Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security aims to develop and demonstrate a cyber-secure microgrid architecture that can be used to supply critical end-use loads when the bulk power system is not available. SPIDERS is strongly focused on transitioning the technologies, concepts and lessons learned to a broad number of stakeholders.
