Powerside, PingThings to Offer Grid Edge Power Quality Solutions

March 31, 2022
Makers of PQube 3 power quality sensors and PredictiveGrid analytics and AI data platform are now offering a solution for greater visibility into power quality anomalies

Two advanced grid sensing technology companies, Powerside and PingThings, signed a memorandum of understanding to offer an integrated solution for sensing and data analytics that provides utilities with critical visibility into distribution networks where solar, wind, battery energy storage, microgrids, and EV charging are deployed.

These non-linear sources create dynamic instabilities within electrical distribution grids, creating power quality and reliability issues. Changes in consumer preferences, environmental benefits, regulations and decreasing costs are continuing to drive widespread DER deployment, with capacity expected to reach 387 gigawatts by 2025 according to research firm Wood Mackenzie.

Powerside’s PQube 3 and microPMU sensors detect and measure these anomalies while PingThings’s PredictiveGrid time series data platform collects and analyzes the data, providing actionable information to enable swift reaction and correction by utilities.

The partnership provides grid operators and their customers with the ability to sense, analyze and act on changes in grid stability.  This unified solution from Powerside and PingThings modernizes an aging grid and enables the growth of distributed energy on existing networks.
