Distributed energy resources
- More information ARENA Insights Newsletter Edition #22
This month we congratulate NOJA Power on a big win and take a look at a collection of projects helping to better integrate renewables into the grid, along with some exciting extras.
Australian switchgear engineering company NOJA Power celebrated a win in the Queensland division of Engineer Australia’s Engineering Excellence Awards.
With ARENA funding, NOJA Power is developing smart switchgear that will monitor energy flow including voltage, current and phase angles on distribution networks. The switchgear includes phasor monitoring units capable of capturing granular real-time data up to 100 times more frequently than SCADA monitoring.
The project is a world-first deployment of Synchrophasor technology in a distribution grid and will provide a variety of safety and reliability benefits.
