Costa Rica Hotel to Set Up Microgrid with Heila Technologies Controller

The owners of a Marriott hotel in Costa Rica are installing a microgrid in a first for the Marriott chain in Latin America. The solar plus storage microgrid at the Costa Rica Marriott Hacienda Belén will use control and optimization software made by Heila Technologies, the companies said July 13. The project includes 250 kW of solar, a … [Read more...]

How Hardware in the Loop Tests the Functionality of Microgrid Controllers

In the fourth article of this special report series brought to you by Microgrid Knowledge and Typhoon HIL, we're looking at how Hardware in the Loop (HIL), specifically controller Hardware in the Loop (C-HIL), is an ideal technique for testing the functionality of microgrid controllers. The IEEE’s 2030.8-2018 Standard for the Testing of … [Read more...]

Controller & Distributed Energy Resource Management System

mPulse is an energy management and supervisory control software platform that leverages standard protocols and interfaces (such as SunSpec, Modbus, DNP3, TCP/IP, XMPP, OpenADR 2.0b, JSON to name a few). CleanSpark’s system is designed to be technology agnostic and capable of integrating with a wide array of energy resources and management systems; … [Read more...]

Concentric Power’s Intelligent Microgrid Controller installed at Taylor Farms

 Taylor Farms’ Gonzales, Calif.,  processing facility had existing wind and solar components, but they functioned independently of each other. The goal of a microgrid and cogen project was to integrate these existing distributed energy resources (DERs) and add firm power to form a microgrid system that could effectively take the facility off grid — … [Read more...]
