Russelectric Advanced Microgrid Control Solution Seamlessly Integrates Energy Assets

Power control technology integrates demand and generation assets

Hingham, MA - Russelectric, A Siemens Business, announces its Advanced Microgrid Control Solution, adding value to a facility's infrastructure through power quality, resiliency, cost reduction, carbon minimization and grid market transaction participation. At the core of the Advanced Microgrid Control Solution, Russelectric's transfer switches, switchgear, and power controllers provide hardware, data, and control integration of a facility's onsite demand and generation assets. This integrated hardware and software solution optimizes loads and generation sources. In doing so, it delivers all the benefits from a wide range of distributed energy resources (DER) technologies.


To successfully deploy an Advanced Microgrid requires a complete physical and software solution that controls a facility's power supply assets - connecting, controlling, and optimizing loads and generation sources to achieve each customer's unique mix of benefits. Russelectric's Advanced Microgrid Controls is a modular, scalable, seamless hardware and software solution to connect, control, and optimize facility generation assets and loads.

"Siemens takes a holistic approach to microgrids, ensuring we can meet customers' evolving needs," says Jason Martin, Head of Russelectric, A Siemens Business. "This includes providing individual components for microgrids, such as switchgear, more integrated solutions such as the Advanced Microgrid Control Solution which is a packaged solution of switchgear plus microgrid controller, or even delivering a turnkey microgrid that can be provided at no upfront cost to the customer via an Energy as a Service agreement. This portfolio of offerings enables Siemens to be a one stop shop for microgrid needs, no matter the partner or project."

Ideal for use in healthcare, data centers, and other critical sectors, the Advanced Microgrid Control Solution improves grid outage, business continuity, while reducing energy costs and carbon footprint. In addition, it improves facility power quality, benefiting internal equipment and reducing utility power quality charges. This is accomplished via dynamic islanding capabilities, fast and reliable decoupling, automatic black start of backup generators, seamless grid resynchronization, and more.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
