Visit us at ESNA 2015 – Learn about our new projects and features for our Real-Time Distributed Control System (RT|DECS) software, used for PG&E’s award-nominated energy storage project
October 9th, 2015
Visit us at ESNA this year in San Diego, October 13-15, to learn about our latest enhancements to RT|DECS and all our solutions for utilities, power producers, and MicroGrids.
We’ve expanded our suite of utility-grade software solutions for grid-level, vendor-agnostic control of distributed energy resources (DER) and energy storage. While early versions of our software let utilities manage a single resource as multiple Virtual Power Plants, we’ve added many new features and control modes for our latest Real-Time Distributed Energy Control System (RT|DECS), to manage control across diverse portfolios of DER & storage and to interface with utility and market systems.
Our RT|DECS software has an important role in PG&E’s Battery Energy Storage System (BESS) projects – managing grid-level controls and interfacing with equipment vendors’ control systems and market award dispatch systems. A highlight of ESNA tours the past two years, PG&E’s Yerba Buena 4 MW Battery Project is nominated for ESNA’s 2015 Innovation Award for Centralized Storage. The project provides many benefits at both the distribution and bulk power level and demonstrates several industry use cases. PG&E’s Vaca-Dixon 2 MW system, also part of the industry collaboration project using our RT|DECS control software, was the first and currently is the only resource to participate in California’s CAISO new Non-Generator Resource energy and frequency regulation markets. See www.esnaexpo.com/awards/2015-finalists.
We partner with all kinds of industry players that can use our software and expertise in control systems. We play a key role in DER, energy storage, and cyber-security research projects with NREL, PNNL, and a microgrid collaboration project at Stone Edge Farm in Sonoma, Ca. We’ve been a trusted provider to utilities, power producers, and large energy users since 1990, with solutions for substation and control center SCADA, substation and distribution automation applications, real-time communication gateways, and more. We’re experts in CAISO NRI telemetry, metering and controls, and we provide our own CAISO-certified RIG provider.
Our software solutions are complementary to virtually all players in this ecosystem, so talk with us!
We’re a gold sponsor for ESNA, in Booth 120 by the open networking area. Our CEO speaks on the expo stage on Wednesday at 10:45 and in the conference session “Resource Aggregation” on Thursday at 11:30. Contact us to schedule a meeting. See you in sunny San Diego!
