Microgrid Power Management System™

Optimization of microgrid operations with controls for load and generation

Paladin® Microgrid Power Management System™ (MPMS) is the first commercially available software platform designed specifically for the online management and control of next-generation “hybrid” power infrastructure incorporating both traditional utility power and on-premise power generation, e.g., solar power, wind turbines, battery storage. It optimizes energy consumption in multi-energy source sites, whether they are focused on a single objective – such as minimizing the annual cost, carbon footprint, peak load, or public utility consumption – or a combination of objectives that vary by time, costs, energy source reliability, etc. Paladin® MPMS helps by:

 

  • Serving as a master controller for intelligent smart grid design, monitoring and trading (i.e., selling electricity back into the public grid)
  • Monitoring in real-time microgrid power quality, utilization and capacity, in order to offer excess capacity to the smart grid
  • Monitoring all transactions between public electric service and micro grid infrastructure
  • Maintaining rate and pricing information for management of private-public exchange
