OS Features

SYSTEM CONTROLS

Actively manage power and operational modes at the Array, Core, Node, and Cube levels with easy access to system KPIs.

APPLICATION SCHEDULING

Schedule multiple market dispatch applications with all relevant timing and operating parameters.

CHARGE PREVENTION

Prevent charging during select days and hours to avoid peak pricing or comply with network requirements.

REAL-TIME ALARMS

Alarms proactively notify operators to system issues and anomalies with time-stamped details.

APPLICATION STACKING

Increase revenue by stacking multiple real and reactive dispatch applications.

EMBEDDED SAFETY

Continuously monitor, detect, and alert operators to potential anomalies in the system.

Layers of Logic

The OS architecture uses integrated intelligence to turn market signals and operator commands into efficiently utilized power. Three levels of supervisory controls and embedded logic coordinate system charging and discharging based on operating parameters and constraints.
