SEL's microgrid control systems are efficient, reliable, and secure solutions for guaranteeing uninterrupted energy delivery to your facility and customers. They control and protect both renewable and conventional generation. SEL systems allow you to operate independently, ensuring a constant supply of energy after the loss of the utility point of common coupling (PCC). SEL's microgrid control systems also let you manage energy storage to maximize renewable generation and reduce peak charges.
Stable and Reliable System Operation
Eliminate System Blackouts
Reduce Energy Costs and Emissions
SEL protective relays, meters, controllers, communications equipment, etc. are manufactured in the USA and come with SEL’s standard ten-year warranty. SEL is ranked as the #1 protective relay manufacturer in North America as measured by the Newton-Evans Research Company customer survey.
A reliable and stable microgrid requires a thorough understanding of the power system. SEL provides comprehensive power system studies and system modeling, and is one of the few companies that performs power-hardware-in-the-loop testing of all protection and control systems — verifying operation and performance under all defined scenarios.
Advanced cybersecurity is designed into individual products and the overall system architecture. Each system uses a “defense-in-depth” approach to security, role-based access to functionality, individual centralized authentication, and encrypted communications for control and critical data. The system also provides system-wide automated password management, intrusion detection and alarming, and user audit trails for all access.
