Cogeneration Utilizing Natural Gas-fired Reciprocating Engines

Cogeneration systems, also known as combined heat and power, have traditionally been installed by larger industrial users with high steam and power demands and by smaller, institutional users such as universities and hospitals. Since the early 2000s, smaller industrial and commercial companies have discovered cogeneration utilizing natural gas-fired reciprocating engines,

Software: Optimizing Operations

For commercial, industrial, and institutional power consumers with a heightened need for affordable, reliable, and resilient power supply, advanced microgrids can provide not only control over power sources and energy costs, but also “green” energy and peace of mind. Microgrids employ a wide range of onsite generation resources, along with

Avoiding Power Interruptions at Data Centers

Avoiding Power Interruptions at Data Centers

Kyle Ellenberger of Power Systems & Controls has seen big changes in the data center industry since the earliest few data centers were launched in the United States.

“The first data centers were crazy—they had soldiers guarding them and barbed wire. No, you can’t roll up in a tank and steal

The Growing Demand for Emergency Backup Power

The Growing Demand for Emergency Backup Power

Colocation and cloud-computing company LightEdge Solutions has succeeded in the data center business largely because of one key reason: The company’s data centers are reliable. The power at these centers never goes out.

Why Microgrids Are Inevitable

Why Microgrids Are Inevitable

The fledgling electric utility companies that emerged after Thomas Edison opened his small Pearl Street, New York City, NY, power station in 1882 originally focused on distributed energy generation (DEG) operating within a microgrid. Edison envisioned that the electric utility industry would involve small firms generating direct current (DC) power

As described by the US Department of Energy (DOE), microgrids are localized grids that can disconnect from the traditional grid to operate autonomously, help mitigate grid disturbances for faster system response and recovery, and strengthen grid resilience.
