The objective of this course is to provide a comprehensive overview of microgrids and the integration of dissimilar energy sources such as: synchronous generator sets, photovoltaic panels, energy storage components and others to maximize the resiliency of the power system, reduce the carbon footprint, and lower the cost of operation.
As part of the presentation, a demo of the Cummins Power Integration Center (PIC), a microgrid lab designed by our leading engineers and microgrid advisors for the configuration, testing, and validation of microgrid power systems will also be shown.
Comprised of four main areas: a lab space including an outdoor test area, a main switchgear room, an electrical mezzanine, and an engineering control room. The testing possibilities of the PIC are endless.
