As seen in Sacramento Business Journal
Folsom, Calif. – Trimark Associates, Inc. (Trimark) is pleased to announce the addition of Mr. Brian Wright as SCADA Engineer. Wright will be responsible for developing advanced tracker and inverter controls to help guide Trimark’s SCADA design and development efforts.
Wright brings more than five years of experience in energy management systems and most recently worked for two years at California Independent System Operator (CAISO) as a Remote Intelligent Gateway engineer. In his role there, he provided real-time data telemetry validation, maintenance and requirements for participating generators, participating loads and proxy demand resources. He also performed Point-to-Point tests and 72-hour Telemetry tests for new resources.
Prior to CAISO, he worked for Trimark as a systems integration manager, where he was part of a team that created a groundbreaking solution – the Imperial Valley Loss Compensation System. The System calculates losses based on metered power production values gathered every four seconds. The result is an acclaimed solution that allows resources at three large solar sites in the Valley totaling 460 MW of power to report their actual losses and resulting settlement values with a high degree of accuracy.
Originally from the Sacramento area, Wright earned a bachelor’s degree in electronics engineering with an emphasis in control systems from California State University, Sacramento. A self-proclaimed physics fanatic, he loves to stay in touch with the nuances around particle physics and nuclear fusion reactors.
