The big question is whether the move to a smart grid would increase the country's vulnerability to cyber attacks, or serve as the best form of defense. California-based Electric Power Research Institute has been selected by the Commerce Department to draw up the "roadmap" of the new smart grid. Its main task will be figuring out just what standards should prevail in that brave new world.

Integrated Agile, Bonfiglioli's frequency inverters for wind turbines, are available as custom design products on request, for Wind Solutions system integrators. Integrated Agile inverters can be mounted directly to the motor and represent a very compact alternative to the traditional yaw system without inverter or with the motor supplied by a standard frequency converter installed in a cabinet.
