As the population grows and power infrastructure ages, grids and microgrids require dynamic monitoring and control systems that provide processing flexibility to scale distribution, optimize grid assets, and analyze grid performance.
NI control and measurement technology helps utilities and power systems engineers to create a smarter grid to improve grid integration of renewable energy sources, implement automated analytics, advance situation awareness, and improve overall energy efficiency. NI offers design tools, test systems, and embedded deployment platforms that give engineers the ability to rapidly explore new approaches, streamline discovery and production, and deploy their innovations in ruggedized measurement and control systems. NI-based solutions use open, customizable measurement tools to meet the unique needs of an industry filled with utility grids that rarely exhibit the same problems.
Based on CompactRIO hardware and LabVIEW, a smart mini grid system can ensure a higher degree of flexibility, reliability, efficiency, and safety for the complete power system.
NI offers technology that lets you push decision making and intelligence closer to the grid, embedded within flexible instrumentation to achieve faster response times, better bandwidth utilization, and functionality field upgrades.
PMUs built on NI technology have four key features that can help utilities, power systems engineers, and grid researchers better understand the health of the grid.
The NI Partner Network is a global community of domain, application, and overall test development experts working closely with NI to meet the needs of the engineering community. NI Partners are trusted solution providers, systems integrators, consultants, product developers, and services and sales channel experts skilled across a wide range of industries and application areas.
An NI Partner is a business entity independent from NI and has no agency, partnership, or joint-venture relationship with NI.
