Achieving Resiliency at Any Scale With SEL Microgrid Controls

Date held: December 15, 2021
Duration: 54 minutes

Join us to see how SEL designs microgrid control systems for a diverse range of use cases, including commercial, military, and mobile applications.

SEL powerMAX microgrid control systems are flexible and versatile, integrate conventional generation and renewable resources, and have been applied in projects ranging in scale from kilowatts to gigawatts. They are designed to reduce capital expenditures, simplify integration and commissioning, and improve overall system resilience.

In this webinar, we’ll examine data from various microgrid projects and discuss some of the techniques, technologies, and engineering approaches that allowed these microgrids to meet the system owners’ operational goals.

Topics will include:

  • Providing generator and inverter load sharing using SEL relays.
  • Paralleling generators and inverters from different manufacturers.
  • Achieving seamless islanding with low-cost load shedding instead of expensive batteries.
  • Using different dispatch modes, including relay local control, optimal economic, maximum resiliency, and maintenance modes.
  • Applying local and remote control redundancy.
  • Using plug-and-play communications architectures.
  • Meeting IEEE 2030.8 requirements for long-term data collection.
