Demonstration Details

The demonstration will highlight some of the leading benefits of SEL powerMAX® microgrid control systems:

  • Microgrid resiliency with no single point of failure
  • Distributed relay control and centralized Real-Time Automation Controller (RTAC) control
  • Interoperability between gensets of different manufacturers, models, and sizes
  • User-selectable dispatch modes, including relay local control, optimal economic, maximum resiliency, and maintenance modes
  • Stable operation for low-inertia systems
  • Plug-and-play system configuration
  • Compliance with MIL-STD-TMS

Information will also be available on the full range of powerMAX power management and control applications—from microgrids on college campuses, military bases, and commercial properties to renewable energy integration, battery storage projects, and industrial power management.
