Smart Microgrid Solutions

Smart, flexible Power Management solutions that optimize energy production in a microgrid

Imagine being able to combine the predictability tools of an Energy Management System with the full control of a Power Management System in one, easy-to-use software platform that allowed you to make maximum use of renewable energy, reduce fuel costs, improve efficiency, decrease greenhouse gas emissions and improve power reliability both on-grid and off-grid: that’s ARTICS Smart Energy! The heart of our smart microgrid solutions.

Smart microgrid

Nidec ASI is working with customers and communities across the globe to install smart microgrids which integrate existing power generation assets with renewable sources to meet local energy demand. When coupled with battery energy storage solutions, we offer the maximum flexibility to help meet and offset peak demand, manage critical and non-critical loads optimizing energy demand and ensure grid stability in a dynamic, constantly changing environment.

Our activities include

  • Load profile mapping (understanding energy needs)
  • Optimal source configuration (based on availability of wind, solar, diesel, etc…)
  • Electrical design of the micro-grid
  • Procurement & Project Management
  • Customization of the Power & Energy Management functions in ARTICS Smart Energy
  • Installation
  • Grid Connection & Commissioning
  • Assistance (including remote diagnostics)
Commercial Facility

Increase the reliance on green energy without risking interruptions in power supply

Large shopping centers, university campuses, government facilities and resorts are seeking ways to increase their reliance on green energy without risking interruptions in power supply. Nidec ASI works closely with customer to identify demand management profiles that will allow the users to define how they use the energy they produce.

For example, customers can avoid peak demand penalties by re-scheduling non-critical loads, define load priorities so that critical loads like security systems, refrigeration or emergency power supply is always guaranteed, etc…

ARTICS Smart Energy can be scaled to any power rating. It is a flexible open platform that can easily be customized to adjust to changes in loads and energy supply making it the ideal solution for commercial buildings.

Rural

Increase the reliance on green energy without risking interruptions in power supply

Thousands of towns and villages in remote areas as well as small islands rely on diesel fuel for their energy supply. Diesel is costly and not always easy to deliver in some regions.

Smart micro-grids are enabling communities to switch to renewable energy sources like wind and solar to reduce their dependency on diesel or other traditional energy sources. When coupled with battery energy storage systems, these micro-grids are radically changing living conditions by giving citizens access to a steady supply of safe, clean electricity that can be used at any time of the day or night.

ARTICS Smart Energy can be scaled to any power rating. It is a flexible open platform that can easily be customized to adjust to changes in loads and energy supply making it the ideal solution for rural electrification.
