Oregon Air National Guard Kingsley Field Microgrid
Coffman provided electrical engineering design services through phase II design for a microgrid and alternate power sources for the Oregon Air National Guard at Kingsley Field in Klamath Falls, Oregon. The project examined resiliency and sustainability in deciding which components to use. The current design uses combined heat and power (CHP), diesel generators, photovoltaic solar panels, electric boilers, and Li-Ion battery storage. Diesel generators were an especially good choice for this project because they have a large storage of JP8 fuel, which will work in place of diesel in a generator on-site. The design also looked at the integration of the system into the existing electrical grid, which buildings were backed up, and laid out the basis for a control system.
