Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI) introduced a new microgrid power switching device that can efficiently transfer power from solar cells and wind farms and then safely integrate it onto the grid to meet actual usage demands. The DTI Micro-Grid Power Controller is a medium-voltage switching device that can take power from renewable energy sources and then integrate it onto a power grid to meet peak load requirements.
Details: Connecting to the grid at 13.8 kV AC through an inverter, it can isolate faults and protect both the generator and load side on a micro-second time scale. Providing bi-directional power flow, key elements of the DTI Micro-Grid Power Controller include a grid-tied inverter at medium voltage and a lower voltage DC bus for high reliability.
Applications: Scalable to multi-megawatt levels, applications for this high-efficiency micro-grid power controller include neighborhoods, industrial and college campuses, and military bases.
The DTI Micro-Grid Power Controller is priced according to power requirements and configuration. Price quotations are available upon request.
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
