RTI empowers distributed energy solutions of tomorrow

Energy systems require high reliability, performance, security and scale across the critical infrastructure. With RTI Connext DDS, Real-Time Innovations provides a solid foundation for advanced and intelligent energy systems of tomorrow. Industrial-strength data sharing can improve power generation and distribution and enable the efficient use of renewable energy resources at large scale.

RTI Connext DDS delivers high reliability and performance to the world’s most demanding power applications. The databus technology enables standards-based interoperability with Industrial IoT applications outside the power industry as well as real-time performance for intelligent control at the edge of the grid. It is extremely scalable and suitable for increasingly large-scale and complex systems. The connectivity solution is equipped with low latency with real-time Quality of Service, and it is secure. It is able to seamlessly connect local and wide area networks, allowing integration of resources across a broad region. And it allows a proven integration of a fast local control loop with secure connectivity over long distances and with cloud infrastructure.

Traditional central-station power grid operators have to compensate for variation in power generation or demand. To efficiently integrate distributed energy resources, the grid needs fast-reacting intelligence at the edge. RTI is collaborating with other members of the Industrial Internet Consortium to introduce the flexibility of real-time analytics and control into power grids and ensure that power is generated more accurately and reliably to match demand.

Power plants, like the largest power plant in North America, can replace their SCADA control systems with RTI Connext DDS to further meet today’s requirements – like extreme availability, fault tolerance, performance, security, and ability to implement wide-area communications. The new control system is smarter, more efficient, and easier to evolve. It is based on modern networking protocols, and the DDS design can leverage new technology as it becomes available, such as cloud computing, connectivity, and security.

RTI is a member of the Smart Grid Interoperability Panel. The Priority Action Plan will develop a smart-grid framework to enable combining solar, wind, and storage into an efficient, secure, flexible architecture for Distributed Energy Resources.

Turbine control in wind turbine farms requires fast local loops and maintenance data collection. Gust control across the array necessitates fast communications with dynamic, selective filtering. RTI Connext DDS provides fast, reliable connectivity across many turbines. With Connext DDS, a Siemens Wind Power farm optimizes power, monitors its own health, and reacts to its environment.
