Feb 08, 2017
In a recent article that recaps the 2016 PowerGen International expo, Turbomachinery Magazine highlighted OATI’s microgrid project as a physical embodiment of the main themes of this “industry’s biggest gathering.” Through a close examination of presentations, Turbomachinery Magazine concludes that Combined Heat and Power (CHP), flexible generation, and microgrids are top on the minds of energy industry executives. This article further discusses how OATI’s new data center employs advanced microgrid software to intelligently optimize onsite generation assets to make reliability and economic decisions on whether to operate in grid-connected or islanded modes—accentuating the importance of microgrids and why they are a growing trend.
