Energy & Utilities
Distributed Technology in the Energy & Utilities Sectors
Energy and Utilities are part of the infrastructure that has unfortunately made the news lately with the Texas Grid Failure and the Gas Pipeline failure in the southern USA. Since DIDOs are not just decentralized, they are distributed allowing for each device in the “smart” and can provide redundancy for each other. Currently, DIDOs are used in a few different areas including managing wind farms, various Microgrid management and integration functions, better management of existing Dynamic Disturbance Recording (DDR) systems and Load balancing.
There are a number of standards bodies and consortium engaged in Smart Grid consortiuums: USA DOE Grid Modernization Laboratory Consortium (GMLC), Consortium for the Intelligent Management of the Electric Power Grid (CIMEG),Open Automated Demand Response (OpenADR), Open Smart Grid Protocol (OSGP), ANSI C12.18-22, and IEC 61107.
Example CASE STUDY
Tactical Microgrid Standard (TMS)
The Tactical Microgrid Standard (TMS) is a new proposed standard for power systems. TMS was developed to lower costs and increase performance for the Department of Defense (DoD), private industry, and residential users. Power grids face a range of increasing challenges:
- Natural disasters of increasing frequency and impact
- Man-made interference or malicious attacks
- The inclusion of new technologies that produce and consume power
- Better integration of components to provide system-level behaviors
