Oracle Utilities DERMS

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.

Anticipate DER behavior

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.

DER Modeling

Give operators the power to procure

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.

DER Scheduling and Dispatch

Optimize for efficiency

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.

Dispatch and Network Optimization

Real-time, adaptive control

Realize better network efficiency through predefined switching plans that are activated based on SCADA values and modeled DER capacity.

Active Network Management

Unlocking value through markets

Accept and process bids for DER-based energy and services based on principles of access.
