The Venetian Convention and Expo Center Las Vegas, NV

Distributed Intelligence and Semi-autonomous DER & Microgrid Controls

Tuesday, August 4 | 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm ET

This webinar will explore control systems that easily connect DERs and create self-organizing and self-regulating microgrids capable of meeting all the electrical demands of neighborhoods, commercial buildings, industrial sites, and even small cities.

Distributed controllers can bring real intelligence to each controllable asset in a microgrid. They address the interoperability challenge by serving as an intermediate layer that homogenizes and standardizes the system, simplify the system operation by performing primary control functions and processing data continuously at the local level, and implement a modular and decentralized optimization suite of techniques that can be used by the microgrid's energy management system. Details of these features as well as field results in the operation of several microgrids will be presented.  In particular, control of DC-coupled microgrids that are becoming the prevalent power architecture due to efficiency, simplicity, reliability, and cost advantages. will be featured.

Join us to hear from noted industry experts on taking advantage of this energy transition.
