Get visibility and control over enrolled customer DERs.
For utilities seeing or anticipating high distributed energy resource (DER) penetration systemwide, a distributed energy resource management system (DERMS) can turn DER intermittency into a dispatchable grid resource that supports reliability and efficiency goals.
With several DER profiles to choose from, users can quickly model DER assets within the network model to support power flow state estimation and other ADMS features.
Whether on a day- or hour-ahead basis, distribution grid operators can schedule and dispatch nominated DER capacity to realize system reliability and safety benefits.
Improve DER capacity allocation and dispatch to deploy DER capacity where it’s needed most for system reliability, with optional network optimization for added operational efficiency.
Realize better network efficiency through predefined switching plans that are activated based on SCADA values and modeled DER capacity.
Accept and process bids for DER-based energy and services based on principles of access.
Leverage our integration and optimization capabilities to get the benefits of DERMS without having to replace your advanced distribution management system (ADMS).
Deploy DERMS as an extension to Oracle Utilities Network Management System (NMS) to realize bundled ADMS and DERMS cost savings.
