Porter Hillhttps://bios.inl.gov/Lists/Researcher/DisplayOverrideForm.aspx?ID=288Porter HillPorter J. Hill is an electrical engineer at Idaho National Laboratory with over ten years’ experience as an engineer. He was a major contributor to a system-level electrical study INL did for several military bases for Army, Navy, and Air Force.  During the system-level studies the He provided guidance to the Bases regarding future plans for the base’s electrical system,  He also performed power flow modeling analysis to identify impacts to the distribution system as solar and wind were integrated. He also performed design to incorporate grid storage into systems in both grid-tie and microgrid modes, the grid storage devises that he has researched are battery, flywheel, and fuel cells.  He holds a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from Utah State University. <div class="ExternalClassFF9F0A11F2A84F1B9B8A41AE03CB4A26"><p>​B.S., Electrical Engineering - Utah State University</p></div>Renewable Energy;Power and Energy Systemshttps://bios.inl.gov/BioPhotos/Blank%20photo.pngElectrical Engineer
