A new micro-grid controller has been launched.

The system, by Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, responds to external information such as users’ priorities and real-time data.

It can be assigned to various user-defined scenarios, like economic dispatch, carbon footprint minimisation, renewable integration and system resiliency.

SEL micro-grid control solutions accommodate many types of distribution energy resources.

Bob Morris, SEL Vice President of national operations said: “Micro-grids have low inertia, which means they need relay-speed SEL micro-grid controllers.

“SEL micro-grid solutions combine dependable computing and communications to provide high-performance micro-grid control, including adaptive relaying, synchrophasors and cybersecurity.”

Controlling these mini-grids may become more necessary as the move towards greater energy efficiency and decentralised energy increases.
