This paper describes field testing of the CERTS Microgrid concepts in an actual hardware installation. The test setup, including hardware that incorporates the CERTS controls, is installed at American Electric Power's Walnut Test Site, near the AEP Dolan Test Center. The results of a variety of tests that cover different scenarios of step load changes and transitions from utility-tied to islanded operation will be described.
