DERMS, or Distributed Energy Resources Management Systems, are new types of software and communication systems that manage distributed energy resources such as solar photovoltaic and battery storage systems. This whitepaper discusses numerous aspects of DERMS, including purpose, core functions, relevant standards, relationship with utility Distribution Management Systems (DMS), utility DERMS projects, and next steps for […]
Update on Hydrazine Alternatives for Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) Secondary Chemistry Control: PWR Chemistry Technical Strategy Group Report
Operators of pressurized water nuclear reactors use hydrazine for oxygen control in the secondary water system. For decades, they have sought a substitute that is as effective as hydrazine while less toxic. This report examines available information on hydrazine alternatives, toxicity, chemical properties, and plant trials.
This research examines how distribution system architectures and applications impact requirements for communication networks.
