Meet and greet with EnerNex thought leaders at one of these upcoming activities.
The 13th Annual Pitt Electric Power Industry Conference
October 15th, 2018
Ron Chebra presenting on Grid Modernization
2018 Minnesota Power Systems Conference (MIPSYCON)
November 6−8, 2018
Saint Paul, MN
Dave Mueller presenting: Do We Really Need to Worry about Harmonics in Wind and Solar Plants?
Wednesday, November 7, 1:45pm
Wind and solar power production is done with the use of inverters, raising concerns for harmonics and other power quality impacts. The inverters used on these projects are slight sources of harmonics, but compliance with IEEE 519 and IEEE 1547 standards can be problematic. Resonance and converter controls interactions are other issues to be considered.
38th PLMA Conference
November 12-14, 2018
Sean Morash presenting: Data Center Demand Response Opportunities
Wednesday, November 14, 11:30am
The modern economy relies on cloud computing and data centers to enable our thirst for information. Data center energy use represents about 2% of US electricity usage and is growing at roughly 3% annually, while the rest of the industry sees stagnant energy usage. These high-tech facilities are ripe for demand management implementations and represent an intriguing opportunity for demand response. Aside from shifting computationally-intensive processing load, data centers’ IT infrastructure, including the uninterruptible power supplies, emergency generation, and thermal air storage characteristics, all provide a possible rapid-demand response, both of the shed variety, and to strategically increase load.
