How Utilities Can Be Microgrid Leaders
Microgrids are more flexible and scalable than ever before. As utilities chart a new course to address the transformation of the grid, microgrids provide a tool to achieve fundamental goals, raising the possibility of emerging as a new customer service.
Maximizing Military Microgrid Efficiencies
For the Department of Defense, having back-up power during outages is critical. This project found the most efficient and cost-effective way for microgrids to supply back-up power using battery storage and a microgrid controller.
Commercial Microgrid Sustains Winery During Power Outages
This behind-the-meter, nested microgrid (actually two microgrids) provides resiliency through seamless islanding during grid failures.
Downtown Urban Office Tower Microgrid
Isolated to one floor of an office high-rise, this microgrid integrates a battery, solar PV and Controller to reduce power consumption during peak hours, decrease strain on the urban electric grid, and mitigate demand charges.

PXiSE’s Microgrid Controller enables a managed clean energy network that supports the campus objectives for resilience, cost savings, and generating over 40% of their electric supply from onsite solar PV.

Resources For Power Plant Controller

Great Valley Solar Power Plant Control
Operating through a single POI, this site needs to comply with CAISO setpoints and constraints and when not constrained by CAISO or its off-takers, delivers the maximum available amount of real power.
Integrated Monitoring & Control Platforms for Hybrid Power Plants
This white paper debunks six myths about renewable energy power plant controls and is a must-read for anyone researching renewable energy power plant monitoring and control platforms.
Mitigating Power And Frequency Fluctuations From DERs
When a 25 MW solar farm came online, it reduced reliance on fossil fuels but created grid instability issues due to weather variations. A microgrid controller solved the instability and provided room to add more distributed energy resources.
Managing Ramp Rates Affected By Multiple DERs
The intermittency of wind and solar on this island grid caused rapid power fluctuations that traditional controls were too slow to handle. With PXiSE’s Power Plant Control, meeting ramp rate requirements at the utility point of interconnection became a breeze.
Renewable Power Plant Control For Energy Cost Savings
PXiSE’s Power Plant Controller automates storage of power generated from solar panels and wind turbines during the day and the discharge of power from batteries at night, optimizing electricity release when energy prices are highest.
