SEL powerMAX Commercial Microgrids—Sustainable, Economic, and Resilient

Date held: March 24, 2021
Duration: 1 hour

Please join our SEL Engineering Services experts to learn more about the system architecture, hardware, and functionality of SEL powerMAX commercial microgrid control systems. This webinar explores how a microgrid controller manages the integration of renewables and the states and transitions of the microgrid to provide resilient and economical operation. You will learn how SEL technology and services combine to address challenges faced by modern microgrids.

Topics include:

  • Maximizing renewable production while maintaining predictable and resilient operation.
  • Avoiding contractual penalties, such as elevated demand charges.
  • Avoiding export limits.
  • Seamless transitions between grid-connected and islanded states.
  • Managing multiple power system objectives.
  • Coordinating distributed energy resources (DERs) that have differing roles and capabilities.
  • System testing and validation prior to deployment.
  • Testing and validation using a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) environment per IEEE 2030.8.

Additionally, we share how SEL powerMAX commercial microgrid control systems address the following technical challenges:

  • Point of common coupling (PCC) management (IEEE-1547, IEEE 2030.7)
  • Island voltage, frequency, and reserve management
  • Generation and load controls
  • Photovoltaic (PV) and battery energy storage system (BESS) dispatch management
  • Energy arbitrage, peak shaving, and demand response
  • Life-cycle management

For more than 10 years, SEL has solved some of the most complex power management system and microgrid challenges using powerMAX technology.
