SCADA Performance ManagementTrimark’s powerful SCADA does more than just collect and present data. It integrates advanced SCADA functions with intuitive analytical tools to meet the operational, performance, and business needs of resource owners, operators, asset managers, and maintenance teams. It turns data into actionable information, enabling informed decision-making to optimize power generation and maximize profits. Performance Management unlocks the real value of SCADA – enhanced understanding of what the data means. Performance management confirms that all of the equipment at a site is performing at the expected levels and drives actions that deliver expected financial results.Read More
Data GatewayTrimark Data Gateway (TDG) is an environmentally hardened, industrial computer that provides connectivity and communications to connect intelligent field devices, such as inverters, RTUs, revenue meters, and meteorological stations with the Trimark SCADA system. TDG eliminates the need for separate, single purpose devices for data telemetry and data logging. It is built from rugged components to ensure reliability in extreme weather.Read More
Trimark SMA GatewayThe Trimark SMA Gateway is a drop-in replacement for the discontinued Sunny WebBox from SMA with the same communication protocol and functionality. The Trimark SMA Gateway collects data from SMA inverters and other devices using the SMA proprietary communication protocol, and then converts the data stream to Modbus for use with traditional monitoring and plant-control systems.Read More
Axiom DAS for Commercial and Industrial
Solar Site MonitoringTrimark Axiom is a cost-effective system that monitors the performance of small solar sites in commercial and industrial settings. Axiom measures and collects performance data that enables site owners to optimize power generation and efficiently manage solar equipment.Read More
Trimark offers an integrated solution to battery energy storage, combining NEC’s Distributed Storage Solution (DSS®) with Trimark’s SCADA platform.
- Trimark is a reseller of NEC’s DSS, which is a pre-configured, fully integrated energy storage platform empowering the delivery of advanced energy services at the grid edge. The NEC DSS reduces enterprise energy costs by optimizing how and when energy is supplied from the grid.
- By combining Trimark’s SCADA control platform with DSS, owners can align multiple generation sources, control charge and discharge events, track power characteristics at the point of interconnection, trend asset performance for predictive maintenance, and automatically produce and distribute scheduled reports.
- The combined DSS/Trimark platforms support smoother intermittent distributed renewable generation and shaving of peak demand.
MicrogridsTo support energy reliability, security, and independence, Trimark's Microgrid Control (MGC) solution unifies management of generation resources, loads, and protective equipment. Trimark's solution maintains equilibrium by continuously monitoring the state of the grid and coordinating commands across appropriate subsystems to accomplish your desired microgrid strategy - safely, automatically, and effectively.Read More
California ISO (CAISO) is a regulatory organization tasked with monitoring, metering, and balancing the electrical system within participating regions of California and Nevada. Electrical wholesale generation entities and Qualifying Facilities (QF) must procure and install metering and data telemetry equipment to communicate with and connect to SCADA and MV-90 systems using CAISO’s energy communication network (ECN).
Balancing the amount and quality of power carried on the transmission grid is a primary mission of CAISO. Revenue meters measure the quality and quantity of power entering and exiting the transmission grid, establishing a precise basis for settling payments. CAISO also monitors real time data for each generation resource through a Remote Intelligent Gateway (RIG). A RIG sends control commands that ensure grid stability and prevent circuit overloading.
CAISO New Resource IntegrationWhether you are a planning a new resource, applying as a Qualifying Facility, or simply need to replace a revenue meter, Trimark is here to guide you to successful completion of the NRI process. We will ensure you cover all requirements for meters, Trimark Remote Intelligent Gateways (RIGs) and meteorological equipment.Read More
CAISO Remote Intelligent GatewayIn California, resource owners must provide real-time production data and plant status to California Independent System Operator (CAISO). Trimark’s Remote Intelligent Gateway (RIG) is a CAISO-accredited gateway that fulfills the data telemetry functions required to participate in California’s electric markets.Read More
Scheduling Coordinator Metered EntityCAISO requires that resource owners select a Meter Data Management Agency (MDMA) to submit Settlement Quality Meter Data (SQMD) on behalf of the Scheduling Coordinator (SC). This is in lieu of the former requirement to provide a certified and inspected revenue meter from which CAISO would process settlement quality revenue data directly.Read More
Revenue grade meters are the cash registers of the electric industry. Meters capture power production data that determines revenue settlement payments. To maximize revenue, meters must be properly configured, so it literally pays to get it right.
