- Electric Distribution System Coordination
- Distribution Generation Coordination Integration
DGR provided a device by device coordination study for the Willmar Municipal Utilities electric distribution system.
Utilizing Milsoft’s Windmil® and Light Table® software we were able to develop a system wide coordination philosophy designed to grow and develop as their system grows.
Utilizing a “zone coordination scheme” we provided recommended settings for relays in each substation as well as proper fuse and VFI selection on the distribution circuits.
The project proved to be challenging on a number of levels, including designing a coordination philosophy flexible enough to handle the activation/deactivation of local system generation.
The distribution coordination project dovetailed into a full 69 kV transmission system loop coordination analysis.

The SE Sanitary Sewer Extension project provided sanitary sewer service to a previously un-serviced area southeast of Dell Rapids, SD
Dell Rapids, SD
Two-phase, 3.16 mile recreational trail on the north and west side of Luverne.
The addition of these new lots gave the City of Minneota opportunity for growth and an increased tax base.
Coordination between multiple entities to create a mutually satisfying layout of buildings, parking area, utilities and street access was a main element of the planning process.
