Putting Technology to the Test AEP’s Dolan Technology Center provides a wide range of real-world testing services for electrical and mechanical power equipment and systems—on site or at your location.
Storing energy in ice

At the Dolan Technology Center, we test various energy storage devices. In addition to the traditional battery, we test other forms of energy storage including thermal energy storage.

Aerial Device Testing

Microampere measurement of insulating electrical materials, including fiberglass booms, live line tools, insulators, insulator blankets and other insulating equipment.

Walnut Station Test Facility

The Walnut Station Test Facility provides unique research and testing services for various distributed energy resources. Test devices alone or in combination, with or without connection to the electric power grid.

Smart Grid Testing

The Smart Grid Test Lab supports activity of the NIST Framework and Roadmap for Smart Grid Interoperability Standards, including AMI testing, Demand Response Systems and SCADA Distribution Automation.
