SECURE COMMUNICATION & CONTROL

COMMUNICATION & CONTROL SCHEMES

Fractal EMS can configure communications and network security to meet your specific project needs.

Cloud Dispatch

Schedule dispatches through the Fractal Calendar. Also receive API commands, ADS (CAISO) or Dispatch Calendar invites from Fractal Model

Utility SCADA Dispatch

Securely receive power (P/Q) commands from SCADA (all data points securely sent to the cloud for monitoring, reporting and predictive failures).

Local Dispatch

The Fractal Site Controller can be programmed to respond autonomously by responding to local measurements (voltage, frequency, load, etc.)

FRACTAL EMS CONTROL MODES

Manual Schedule

Schedule pre-programmed and customizable applications (stack up to ten) through the Fractal EMS Calendar.

Monitor and Respond

Fractal EMS monitors load, pricing, or SCADA (AGC) and responds with predefined applications.

Measure and Respond

Fractal EMS measures frequency, current, and voltage (and calculates power), and responds with predefined applications.

Receive and Respond

Fractal EMS receives commands via SCADA (AGC) or receives commands from a third-party via API.

SECURE COMMUNICATIONS

  • Secure (e.g., 2-factor security authentication) access and communications, using industry standard protocols, including Modbus/TCP and DNP 3.0
  • Controller offers seamless integration with a SCADA system or any 3rd party controller
  • Compliant with leading open standards specifications e.g., MESA and SunSpec
  • Authentication via secure log-in with multiple user profiles that have the appropriate level of access and control for different users

REMOTE SYSTEM OPERATION

The Web Interface (HMI) enables remote control across multiple locations through encrypted communication:

  • Open and close site level switchgear / breakers
  • Open and close inverter breakers (AC and DC)
  • Open and close battery rack contactors
  • Switch operating modes and reset inverters
  • Seamlessly update parameters and setpoints in real-time (locally and remotely)
  • Receive and acknowledge faults, alarms and warnings
  • Address faults, alarms and warnings by performing diagnostics and reviewing bit status codes
  • Issue an emergency stop (E-Stop)
  • Automatically and remotely deploy fire suppression
  • Custom BOP control algorithms and optimization available
