Alstom and NTU Singapore to develop MicroGrid Power Mix Management solution
Alstom, and Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU) have announced a collaboration to design, develop and deploy MicroGrid Power Mix Management (MPMM) solution in accordance with the REIDS initiative, Alstom’s press release reads.
The Renewable Energy Integration Demonstrator Singapore (REIDS) initiative is concerned with the construction of microgrid to manage and integrate electricity generated from multiple sources including solar, wind, tidal, diesel, as well as energy storage and power-to-gas solutions.
Starting from January 2015, Alstom, together with NTU, will develop a MicroGrid Power Mix Management solution, based on Alstom’s Digital Automation Platform (DAP), which will manage power exchanges within a microgrid both when it is connected to or separated from the main grid, the company says.
This solution is to be implemented at NTU’s EcoCampus and subsequently on the Semakau Landfill.
The Semakau Landfill project is expected to demonstrate the ability to manage new energy mix based on high penetration of renewable sources in an off-the-grid environment.
The main objective of this project is to ensure a greener and stable supply of energy through the integration of smart energy management and energy storage systems.
