UQ’s Richard Bean and Neil Horrocks discuss a project they are involved with that would enable network operators to see household voltage and current data in real time.
distributed energy resources
James Martin from SwitchDin, provides an overview of the state of distributed energy management, and how it relates to last week’s events in SA.
Guest author, Andrew Wilson, reviews the performance of his home solar + battery system at the one year mark after installation.
SwitchDin’s Joseph Kassouf examines the real-world challenges of coordinating control of rooftop solar inverters.
Several stakeholders within the DER industry have come together to publish a best practice guide specifying the data required to enable aspects of the next iteration of our electricity network. Our guest author, Stefan Jarnason of Solar Analytics, writes about the need for real time DER data and explains aspects of the guide.
There’s already been a large uptake of distributed energy generation data, and there promises to be much more to come in this energy transition. With this comes some significant challenges – along with opportunities (with respect to the electricity production itself, and also in terms of the data that’s produced). So in the interest of doing things better, here’s a detailed look at our own rooftop solar experiences at home.
