Intelligent Microgrid Solutions

Intelligent Microgrid SolutionsThe Tactical Demonstration area features wind turbines, solar panels, power generators, modular small shelter systems and associated Environmental Control Units that together illustrate the Integrated Smart Basic Expeditionary Airfield Resource.

Critical operations need a dependable energy system that ensures power is provided to their most significant needs during demanding conditions. Intelligent Microgrid Solutions provide an Efficient, Reliable and Secure energy microgrid system that integrates existing power generation assets with new or existing renewable power sources and manages energy demands, whether connected or independent of a utility power grid. This microgrid power system will support mandates to improve energy efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, decrease fuel use and increase the use of renewable energy, while reducing energy costs.

Lockheed Martin’s Intelligent Microgrid Solution has an established record of offering efficiency to its customers through programs such as the Integrated Smart BEAR Power System (ISBPS), the Hybrid Intelligent Power (HI Power), and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP)  microgrid systems.

Performance Validation

The Microgrid Development Center is an advanced systems engineering facility that offers a holistic approach to testing new technologies and solutions. Lockheed Martin’s Microgrid Development Center (MDC) offers a holistic approach to power systems design. The MDC helps our customers and partners in industry analyze and verify the impact of new technologies on microgrid energy system performance. This is achieved through industry-leading systems engineering processes, a world-class simulation and visualization center, and software-in-the-loop and hardware-in-the-loop integration experience.

Lockheed Martin is already applying its renowned systems engineering expertise in tackling such challenges through programs like the the Integrated Smart BEAR Power System (ISBPS), the Hybrid Intelligent Power (HI Power), and the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP)  microgrid systems, and partnerships similar to the sublicense agreement with Ideal Power Converters and Polarity.
