IPERC's forwarding-thinking technology has provided unique energy solutions for a variety of projects and demonstrations. Read some of our case studies below to learn more about what we have accomplished in the world of microgrids.
IPERC Supplies Microgrid Control System for SPIDERS Microgrid Project at Joint Base Pearl Harbor Hickam, Hawaii
Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security (SPIDERS) is a multi-agency, three-phase project funded and managed by DoD, DoE and DHS. IPERC was selected to provide the microgrid control system solution for the initial phase of the project.
In proof of concept testing and demonstration, the IPERC IPC moved from initial research and theory to a working prototype. The IPC demonstrated the ability to control equipment, reduce fuel consumption, and optimize equipment performance.
The second phase of the SPIDERS project completed commissioning and demonstration in October of 2013. The IPERC GridMaster® served as the microgrid control system solution.
The SBIR program has provided several opportunities for IPERC to utilize the research grant funding to develop and hone a number of technologies. IPERC has completed Phase I, II and II-e projects focused on plug-and-play technologies for the tactical grid.
IPERC was awarded the contract to provide the networking and control system for the microgrid to be implemented at Camp Smith, Hawaii. IPERC has now been independently selected to provide the control system for all three phases of the SPIDERS project.
