CALM provides and maintains cyber-secure intelligent systems to ensure the transmission of reliable and high quality electricity given uncertainties and flexibility in supply and demand
The CALM Power Broker is a proven cyber-secure intelligent Delivery Management System integrating cloud managed energy with substation managed energy.
It's wired to a substation’s SCADA & relay protection systems and any substation energy storage and generation in order to fill the many gaps of providing reliable electric delivery.
AI/ML manages uncertainties and flexibility associated with inverter-based renewables, energy storage, and third party DER interoperability.
Tie-flow matters in maintaining reliability under all actual and predicted contingencies. The bulk and distribution system contingencies are challenged by masking from DER supplies and demands, especially given the stochastic nature of renewable supply.
The CALM Power Broker system applies its AI/ML to forecast loads and supplies under various equipment failure contingencies and commands substation and DER equipment to pre-empt overages when contingencies actually occur. This is critically important in an inverter-based world of energy storage, electric vehicles, wind power, and solar energy.
The installed CALM Power Broker monitors and dispatches utility-managed Distributed Energy Resources (DER) to optimize grid tie-flow at the transmission and local distribution system level to maintain reliability taking into consideration the limited supply available from Storage and DER.
Dispatch is focused first and foremost on grid reliability and then if possible market value. Substation Energy Resources dispatch is scheduled based on reliability and DER’s response to dispatch.
