StruxureWare Demand Side Operation
This software optimizes the operation of your microgrid and distributed energy assets. Using real-time pricing data feeds and weather conditions in conjunction with predicted load profiles, it uses advanced algorithms to coordinate communications with the smart grid
and optimize your microgrid operation. By tracking, forecasting, and visualizing all microgrid parameters, it helps you control energy assets to maximize financial benefits while maintaining optimal operation. Demand Side Operation automatically predicts your energy flexibility for the next period and proposes it to the system for evaluation (with manual override capability). The system will then coordinate actions at scheduled times (for example by curtailing non-critical loads) and will manage all payment transactions.
