Communication & Control Testbed for Microgrid Applications
ENERGY & UTILITIES
There are many challenges today with traditional grid design including increasing demand, new electrical loads, and aging infrastructure. The Microgrid Communication and Control Testbed will introduce the flexibility of real-time analytics and control to increase efficiencies in this legacy process – ensuring that power is generated more accurately and reliably. This Testbed is designed to show how processing, communication, and monitoring technologies can help improve grid efficiency and resiliency. Microgrid technology is thought of as a critical component to help properly manage the growing adoption of renewable generation technology such as wind and solar.
