Attend Trimark’s Presentations at Solar Power International, Energy Storage International, and North America Smart Energy Week
Trimark has quite a line-up at Solar Power International (SPI) in September. In addition to visiting our booth #3218, mark you calendars to attend our presentations to build your knowledge base.
Transforming Data Into Information and Knowledge
Wednesday, September 25 – 11:00 AM – 11:30 AM – Location 251D
As the implementation of the smart grids increases, so does the quantity and variety of SCADA events. To transform this huge amount of data into information, big data algorithms need to be integrated into a SCADA system. This integration is a growing trend that facilitates prompt decision-making and problem detection.
This presentation will illustrate the benefits of real-time data analytics built into a SCADA system. It will show how data analytic methods, Key Performance Index (KPI) matrices, weather information, and historical patterns can improve a plant’s operational performance. It will also cover various methodologies for energy prediction and anomaly detection based on machine learning and deep learning algorithms.
Real-life scenarios, using dashboards, alarms, and reports, will further explain how data analytics can be used to detect operational issues and the best solution to resolve these issues.
Speaker: May Cai, Data Scientist
BESS: Selecting the Right Size and Type of Energy Storage to Support Your PV System
Wednesday, September 25 – 3:40 PM – 3:55 PM – Location 253A – Technical Session
When integrating a battery energy storage system (BESS) with distributed PV generation, it’s essential to compare the characteristics of various battery types, as well as size options. This presentation will address the shortcomings of the commercially available battery sizing tools. It will also outline the methodology behind a cost analysis that incorporates investment costs, maintenance costs, and the benefits of installing a BESS. In addition, it will also cover energy storage applications, technologies, and requirements, such as peak shaving, ramp rate limiting, and grid reliability. The goal is for the BESS to fulfill the anticipated needs at the lowest cost, while maximizing the lifetime of the battery.
Speaker: Scott Barrington, Business Development Manager
