Communications solutions from power generation to consumers

Advanced communications are essential for enabling Smart Grid applications such as grid visualization, real-time load monitoring, automated demand response, advanced protection, asset monitoring, smart metering, and consumer load control.

Digital Energy delivers the foundations of Smart Grid communications with multi-service, fiber optic Lentronics multiplexers, flexible MDS wireless devices that create reliable, long distance, wireless networks, and rugged MultiLink Ethernet management and data handling products.
Digital Energy Smart Grid

 


Utilities require an economical solution to enable fast and secure intelligent communications to
residential electric meters to allow new market-driven billing structures to be implemented. The MDS
Mercury 3650, using WiMAX technology, provides long distance, high speed communications with
secure data handling using encryption and user authentication. Industrial-grade certifications and
the exceptional performance reliability of the 3.65 GHz band, ensures trouble-free operation.

Connecting Distributed Generation (DG) to the grid is required to meet the growing demand for power,
while reducing carbon emissions produced by traditional coal generating stations. GE Digital Energy’s DGT enables the safe connection of Distributed Generation  to the grid. Our fast, 2-way wireless network sends
emergency disconnect signals from the utility to distributed generation sites. Trip confirmation status is
returned back to the utility control center. This wireless infrastructure reduces communications costs while ensuring safe interconnection to the grid.

Many remote communities need to produce and manage all of the power required to support their
loads. Providing the means to monitor the load of the entire system and optimize and dispatch the different
types of generation available to meet load requirements is needed to reduce the overall electricity operating
costs. The GE Microgrid Control System uses power generation information to select the most cost effective
method of providing uninterrupted supply, while also providing the ability to control and optimize generation,
storage and delivery of cleaner power.
