The microgrid technology available today offers increased resiliency, lowers energy costs, and helps meet sustainability objectives. WES works within the energy network to explore how critical facilities can leverage new technologies for improved resiliency.
Microgrids are imperative to the existing energy grid for maintaining power. Continuity of operations in critical facilities in the face of recent natural disasters
When deployed, independent modular microgrids rely wholly on operational inputs for
DC Coupled Microgrids
Why Consider Microgrids Now?
Recent advances in technology such as the application of Granular Diagnostics™, Touch Safe DC, etc. and an increase in frequency and duration of power outages have increased the feasibility of, and interest in Microgrids.
Properly implemented Microgrids can offer facilities requiring consistent, continuous, reliable power, and desire increased efficiency and a lower carbon footprint a very attractive alternative.
Granular Diagnostics™ integrates and leverages sophisticated monitoring tools that can diagnose the behavior and characteristics of every device on an electrical network in real time, collects the historical data, and then utilizes state-of-the-art data analytics. While providing and audit trail of usage on each device on the network it allows the user to better understand the complex interrelationships between devices on the network and run true “what if” scenarios and exercise control more intelligently.
DC Coupled Microgrids take advantage of new technologies to allow for the delivery of safe high voltage direct current. Given the fact that renewable energy solutions produce DC energy that must be converted or rectified to AC current creating significant energy loss, and most storage solutions store DC power, DC Coupled Microgrids are highly cost effective.
