Every year, RE+ (previously SPI, ESI, and Good Power Week) conducts a stay demonstration of microgrids on its present ground. This yr’s demonstration (in Anaheim, California, Sep. 19-22) will characteristic a completely working hybrid bi-directional residential microgrid, full with home equipment, HVAC, lighting, EV charging and numerous plug load distributions together with line AC and DC, USB-C, PoE and FMP.
EMerge Alliance, in collaboration a number of distributors, is facilitating the stay demonstration.
The demo will even present the surplus energy it generates to the adjoining Grid Edge presentation theater and different exhibitor masses on the conference middle ground.
Energy assets for the microgrid shall be a mix of photo voltaic, battery and utility vitality that shall be situated in an space adjoining to the conference ground.
The microgrid will energy each AC and DC gadgets and home equipment in a simulated residential setting. It’s going to even be interconnected in a simulated multi-tiered grid-of-grids community of different microgrids and the macrogrid.
Numerous working modes shall be repeatedly demonstrated, together with lack of utility energy, lack of on-site renewable energy, lack of renewable neighborhood/neighborhood vitality assets, full islanding, and seamless reconnection of all these assets. Cyber-security shall be completed by way of a “Zero-Belief” working philosophy, permitting the microgrid to autonomously function whereas beneath unsure cyber safety situations.
The demonstration is a multi-vendor system engineered by Direct Power Companions and contains electrical gadgets from Emera Applied sciences Block Power, CE+T America Energy Programs, LG Home equipment and Photo voltaic Panels, Trane HVAC, Cisco Programs PoE & FMP, Enteligent EV Charging, PomCube iCan Power Storage, Nextek Energy Programs, ATX LED, IronRidge Photo voltaic Mounting, Alencon Optimizers, and lots of extra.
Set up of the on-site microgrid shall be overseen by Direct Power Companions and Rectify Photo voltaic.
Displays in regards to the Demonstration Microgrid and its parts, the Grid-of-Grids Interconnection System, and numerous associated grid-edge topics shall be held within the Grid Edge Theater subsequent to the stay demonstration throughout three-day occasion. Subject material consultants and firm representatives shall be on-hand to reply questions in regards to the demonstration.
Have you ever checked out our YouTube web page?
We’ve a ton video interviews and extra content material on our YouTube web page. Lately we debuted Power Forward! — a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to debate increased degree trade subjects in addition to finest practices / developments for operating a photo voltaic enterprise at this time.
Our longer operating aspect venture is The Pitch — by which we now have awkward discussions with photo voltaic producers and suppliers about their new expertise and concepts in order that you do not have to. We have discusses all the things from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new house solar + storage microgrids.
We additionally put up our Project of the Year bulletins there! Interviews with this yr’s winners shall be up beginning the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe at this time to remain on high of all this additional stuff.
