Princeton Power Systems offers the ability to integrate a EMOS (Energy Management Operating System) . The EMOS has built-in control algorithms to allow participation in ancillary service markets including Area Frequency Regulation, Auto Demand Response, Peak Power Limiting, VAR Support, and others.
The EMOS is a ruggedized PC-based hardware and software solution with a graphical interface. Aggregating data from multiple stations at a given installation, the EMOS provides a single control and monitoring point. A EMOS may be useful if the charging stations will be operational before the Central Controller is fully defined, developed, and implemented. Once the Central Controller is fully developed, it can issue commands to the Princeton Power Systems EMOS rather than directly to each station.
New devices can be loaded into the control framework to scale the system complexity to the user requirement.
- All control inputs and measurements gathered by the EMOS can be aggregated and made available on a communication interface to the site.
- Supports many standard protocols like Modbus TCP, Modbus RTU, DNP3 or OCCP.
- Scalable set of control functions that aggregate all site connected hardware to fulfill control of the microgrid for energy efficiency.
- This also aids in viewing status of the microgrid in real-time.
- The communication client who interfaces to specific peripheral or hardware (like power meters, inverters & generators for example)
Scheduling is a very powerful EMOS feature. It allows parameter values to be set at specific times. This can be used for a number of uses, such as charging batteries during times of the day when power is less expensive, turning on peak shaving during high demand periods of weekdays, and switching on inverters in the morning.
The Princeton Power Systems EMOS has built-in control algorithms to allow participation in ancillary service markets including Area Frequency Regulation, Auto Demand Response, Peak Power Limiting, VAR Support, and others.
The EMOS can be configured to host and control many devices that interconnect at any particular site. It is scalable and can be used for simple tasks such as scheduling peak power thresholds or more complex like managing large multi-megawatt distributed power generators, meters, diesel generators and many types of battery management systems.
