Encorp LLC announced the launch of its Microgrid System Controller, which it says is the industry’s first microgrid system controller to connect onsite synchronous generators with renewable energy assets—such as photovoltaic systems, wind, and microturbines—and then monitor and control the resulting microgrid. The controller has already been successfully installed at a major international defense contractor site. It connects separate generator sets with inverter-based renewable sources, and it can interconnect a combined generation source to the utility grid or operate in island mode. (http://www.encorp.com).
