Power Analytics finds partners for microgrid project

Power Analytics, which recently won a Department of Defense’s Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) contract to demonstrate the management and control of a secure cluster of microgrids at three U.S. Navy facilities, announced partner companies for the project.

The partners are Conner Networks, OSIsoft, Spirae and Viridity Energy.

Initial software and hardware testing is currently underway for this three-year project. One of the expected outcomes is the development of a microgrid template that can be used for deployment of similar systems at U.S. military bases worldwide.

Conner Networks will provide cybersecurity for the innovative cluster solution, which when fully operational will link three naval facilities into a secure cluster. OSIsoft will provide data network management including a data historian for the microgrid system.

Spirae will provide the control mechanisms for the microgrid. Viridity Energy’s software will forecast electrical loads, generation capability, and market price to allow the bases to optimize use of their electrical infrastructure.

In addition, the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) and San Diego Gas & Electric (SDG&E) will act as consultants to the microgrid project.
