Lets create sustainable
Energy sector has attracted a lot of attention due to valid reasons. Different government departments and agencies like ARENA, AEMO and Department of Land, Water and Planning are encouraging the innovative solutions as this sector expanded from the traditional one way model of generation, distribution and consumption to multi faceted and new business and market models. The immediate futures demand innovative and secured IoT ecosystems to be introduced into the traditional SCADA based networks and systems of energy sector.
Microgrid and Virtual Power Plant Operations
In last two years, a few multi-million Microgrid Initiatives were started. While many of the installations are successful, these microgrid project owners have recently started focusing on the operations aspects. Swans can partner with the microgrid owners to;
Design end to end system that involves DERs, connectivity, cloud based grid monitoring system
Holistic security assessment, management and processes establishment
Build new business and market models to better utilise the power generated
Smart Grids, DER - Security and Interoperability
Recently, there is a great amount of work done by CSIRO, NER and AEMO to set the Australia Energy Market and grid ready for the mass introduction of Distributed Energy Resources (DER) like roof-top solar PVs, batteries and electric vehicles.The main functions for the safe and sustainable power futures with new busienss models includes DER pushing the performance measures, ready to accept the queries and respond, Introduction of systems on the DNSP / Aggregator level to authenticate and authorise the communication from DER, Maintain Data integrity, scale-up to the data events, compute fast to send any updates to the DERs in case of disturbances.
Swans are eager to be part of the these new journeys by
Stragise the implementation of the DER security and interoperability requirements
Architect and design these new ecosystems
Influence the stakeholders (especially the equipment vendors) to meet the latest IEEE and AS standards
Integration of the DER into the multiple stakeholders'systems like distribution SCADA, AEMO Market trading systems and equpment vendors' systems.
