The GridMaster® Microgrid Control System
The GridMaster® Microgrid Control System is an essential element of a microgrid. Without a robust control system, your microgrid could be just a collection of expensive equipment. The integrated software/hardware solution is the conductor of the microgrid symphony. Simplifying the inherent complexity of a microgrid, the GridMaster easily integrates and communicates with a host of different energy assets.
GridMaster’s distributed control architecture eliminates single points of failure, thereby enhancing power system resiliency. The system is designed from the ground up with cybersecurity in mind, as a seven-layer Defense-in-Depth security protocol is built into the software and hardware.
The GridMaster automatically recognizes system changes and uses control algorithms to handle unexpected events. The GridMaster manages system priorities as defined by the microgrid operator. This sophisticated system is capable of handling multiple contingencies simultaneously to preserve critical loads.
