This technology generates a workflow and tool set that will streamline microgrid and power system design, development, test, and commissioning with the help of ultra-high fidelity, real-time analysis capability.

 However, adoption has been hindered by high costs and slow acquisition due to a disconnected design processes, interoperability issues between legacy equipment (“brown field”) and new equipment, lack of flexibility and modularity to incorporate evolving requirements, and lack of ability to integrate and control multiple microgrids on the same installation.

This is exciting to hear about-- are there any particular types of sites the DoD expects to see become more available to microgrids thanks to these types of solutions, the lowest hanging fruit acquired?
