ABB Ability™ Distributed Energy Resource Management Solution (DERMS)
Power distribution networks are being transformed by the connection of distributed energy resources (DERs) like rooftop solar and battery energy storage. Distribution network operators need to keep the grid balanced and optimized in real-time while maintaining system reliability and power quality.
As the number of intermittent renewable and DERs being integrated into the grid increases, advanced digital solutions are required to manage the challenges posed by increased network complexity and load variability. Market participants such as generation companies, aggregators and retailers want to create and offer innovative new services that maximizes the revenue on their DER portfolios.
ABB’s Distributed Energy Resource Management Solution (DERMS) enables electric distribution companies, generation companies with renewable energy portfolios, and aggregators participating in wholesale electricity markets to manage the entire lifecycle of DERs from registration to optimization, control and settlements.
