Sept. 23, 2021
In this video, leaders in microgrid engineering describe challenges they’ve faced in designing, installing and operating microgrids and how they solved them.

Leaders in microgrid engineering describe challenges they’ve faced in designing, installing and operating microgrids and how they solved them. Scott Manson of SEL discusses a project where they reversed engineered a blackout at a large industrial facility using a hardware-in-the-loop simulation and how microgrid architectures are changing to optimize cost and reliability. Allie Schwertner of Rockwell Automation shares insights on how companies can address the data disconnect challenges that exist with microgrids and distributed energy resources. Finally, Jason Philhower of Power Engineers discusses campus microgrid design considerations.

This panel discussion is moderated by Phil Gonski, Project Manager at The Burns Group.

Featured speakers include:

Scott Manson, Technology Director, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories

Allie Schwertner, Advanced Energy Business Development Manager, Rockwell Automation

Jason Philhower, Senior Electrical Engineer, Power Engineers

This video was recorded during Microgrid 2020 Global, a virtual gathering of microgrid leaders, advocates, and thinkers from seven continents. Held in November of 2020, the editors at Microgrid Knowledge gathered the industry at a pivotal event designed to set a goal for microgrid growth over the next decade. Although this was previously recorded, you’ll find many of the examples and insights are timeless in their strategic value.

The three-day event featured over 90 speakers and 27 educational sessions. Designed by the editors of Microgrid Knowledge, the one-of-a-kind event covered news and trends in microgrid market development, technology, business models, financing and policy. Topics covered during the event include how microgrids can make or save you money, residential microgrids, and solutions to microgrid engineering and technical challenges.

Microgrid Knowledge produces the world’s largest microgrid events.
