Building A Better Microgrid - Schneider Electric Microgrids

LinkedIN Posts-01

 

This article is the third in a series from the Microgrid Conference Panel 2019 – Making Sure Your Microgrid Will Work: Risk Reduction with Controller Hardware In the Loop (C-HIL) and Model-based Engineering

Andy Haun, CTO of Schneider Electric’s microgrid business, was one of the panelists at the Microgrid Conference 2019. He has led many key product development and technical innovations at Schneider Electric to simplify and enable effective grid-edge solutions including battery-based energy storage with highly-efficient inverters for distributed energy resources.

Andy talked about how Schneider Electric used model-based system engineering and microgrid Hardware-in-the-Loop testing for designing and testing power systems controls.

The Ship is a Microgrid (Part II) - Why is this so hard to design and build?

00 Top

 

This is an extension of my previous blog relating a ship's power system to a microgrid - interconnected loads (propulsion, C4ISR, propulsion and auxiliary) and distributed energy resources (power generation, distribution and energy storage) acting as a controllable entity. I will be describing a layman’s perspective on digital engineering as it applies microgrid design, building, commissioning, operation and maintenance or lifecycle of a ship.

Shipboard Microgrid

The ship is a microgrid with interconnected loads (propulsion, C4ISR, propulsion and auxiliary) and distributed energy resources (power generation, distribution and energy storage) acting as a controllable entity. This is not a new concept. However, it is one that is taking on far greater significance with the increasing electrification and computerized control of naval and merchant marine ships.
