EMerge Alliance, in collaboration with a number of distributors, will facilitate a stay demonstration of a residential microgrid on the upcoming RE+ occasion in Anaheim, California, September 19-22.
Every year, RE+ (previously SPI, ESI, and Good Power Week) conducts a stay demonstration of microgrids on its present flooring. This yr’s demonstration will characteristic a completely working hybrid bi-directional residential microgrid, full with home equipment, HVAC, lighting, EV charging and varied plug load distributions together with line AC and DC, USB-C, PoE and FMP. It is going to additionally present the surplus energy it generates to the adjoining Grid Edge presentation theater and different exhibitor hundreds on the conference heart flooring. Energy assets for the microgrid will probably be a mix of photo voltaic, battery and utility vitality that will probably be positioned in an space adjoining to the conference flooring.
The microgrid will energy each AC and DC units and home equipment in a simulated residential setting. It is going to even be interconnected in a simulated multi-tiered grid-of-grids community of different microgrids and the macrogrid. Varied working modes will probably be constantly demonstrated, together with lack of utility energy, lack of on-site renewable energy, lack of renewable neighborhood/group vitality assets, full islanding and seamless reconnection of all these assets. Cyber-security will probably be achieved by way of a “Zero-Belief” working philosophy, permitting the microgrid to autonomously function whereas beneath unsure cybersecurity situations.
The demonstration is a multi-vendor system engineered by Direct Power Companions and contains electrical units 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 plenty of extra. Set up of the on-site microgrid will probably be overseen by Direct Power Companions and Rectify Photo voltaic.
Displays concerning the Demonstration Microgrid and its parts, the Grid-of-Grids Interconnection System and varied associated grid-edge topics will probably be held within the Grid Edge Theater subsequent to the stay demonstration throughout three-day occasion. Subject material consultants and firm representatives will probably be readily available to reply questions concerning the demonstration.
