Software for real time monitoring and control of DER at the grid edge to manage grid integration through Utility DERMS (Strata Grid) or Microgrid (Strata Resilience) products.

Element Grid provides:

  • Integration point for DER and grid assets and field devices using open standard utility protocols
  • Stand-alone and local control modes to manage micro or macro grid within its limits
  • Standard and custom fail-to-safe local functionality
  • Secure and flexible software component to deliver multiple use cases locally and in concert with upper layer Utility DERMS and Microgrid controls.
  • Proven capability and flexible configuration through advanced toolchain to deliver bespoke projects.

Element Grid is the configurable software solution to enable smarter monitoring and control of DER and network assets at the grid edge.

Distribution Utilities require a means of interfacing to customer sites and deliver autonomous fail-to-safe responses when flexibility service providers or flexible connection users fail to deliver required services or operating schedules, comply with dispatch or control instructions, or lose communications or other system interruption.

Element Grid is the configurable software solution to enable smarter monitoring and control of DER and network assets at the grid edge. Deployed as a standalone solution for grid interconnection and export limiting applications, or as an integrated part of Strata Grid, Element Grid delivers key monitoring, fail-to-safe and local autonomous control functions.
