Power System Master Plan

Location: Livermore, Calif.

Client: Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory retained Burns & McDonnell to develop long-range and short-range plans for its power system. A master plan was created that documented planning criteria, study methodology and load forecasts; technically evaluated the existing distribution system; analyzed the 2004 electric power system; analyzed the 2019 electric power system's future requirements; and developed transition and recommended plans. The project included a system load forecast, power system analysis, individual system improvements recommendations, condition-based equipment assessment, bulk power delivery analysis, and SCADA and metering system assessment.
