SEMINAR: The ARDA Power DC Microgrid Platform

SEMINAR: The ARDA Power DC Microgrid Platform

Seminar Abstract 

This seminar will provide a system overview of the battery-centric ARDA DC Microgrid Platform setting the stage for mass proliferation of microgrids with the following benefits:

  • ​Reducing and/or eliminating the need for customization.
  • DC resource coupling in the interests of increasing system efficiency.
  • The simplification of the grid interface, and the reduction of impact on grid operation, as well as the execution of seamless islanding during grid failure.

This presentation will also provide an example of a microgrid, recently installed in an industrial building located in Burlington, Ontario, which includes: a solar plant, a gas generator, storage, DC and AC loads, and the ability to support both grid-connected and off-grid operation.
