Prescient has analyzed microgrids to create innovative solutions for their use both in island mode and in parallel with the power grid.
Description of Services
By developing microgrid models, we can estimate daily, hourly, and seasonal microgrid loads, as well as renewable power generation and stored energy capacity. Using these real and reactive power models, we can then make recommendations to optimize microgrid load and generation.
Our Solutions Address:
Day-to-day operation issues while running in parallel.
Effective separation after the grid experiences a fault.
Continued operation while in island mode.
Efficient reconnection to the grid after issues have been resolved.
Why Use Our Services?
Microgrids are a network of electricity sources that can either work with the existing power grid, or can act independently of the grid in “island mode.” Microgrids are an exciting movement happening today, with modern cities, building, and homes being designed to generate and distribute their own electricity. Excess energy created by microgrids is sold to local utility companies, which minimizes the electric bill for those on the microgrid.
However, because microgrids are often independently owned and operated, issues often arise within their systems. At Prescient, we analyze microgrid systems to identify issues and recommend solutions. Contact us to learn more.
