Princeton Power Systems and Aquion Energy to Construct World's Largest AHI Battery System

Princeton Power Systems and Aquion Energy to Demonstrate DRI-10 in a Fully Functioning Microgrid

PRINCETON, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Princeton Power Systems, a leading global designer and manufacturer of technology products and embedded software for energy management, micro-grid operations, and electric vehicle charging, announced today that they will be partnering with Aquion Energy, a leading manufacturer for proprietary Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI™) batteries and battery systems for stationary energy storage applications, to construct the Largest AHI battery built to date. The companies will collaborate on a project to showcase the Princeton Power Systems DRI-10 in a fully functioning microgrid at Aquion's Systems Integration Laboratory (SIL). The project, which will be commissioned at the SIL later this summer, will contain 14 of Aquion's M-Line modules (270 kWh nameplate) being charged and discharged by a DRI-10 in both grid interactive and islanding modes. The system will run a variety of protocols emulating real world microgrid conditions.

Princeton Power Systems' UL 1741 listed DRI-10 features a distinctive E-quad power flow design combined with split-phase electrical connections and islanding capability -- making this inverter ideal for applications such as hybrid solar systems, wind with storage, electric vehicle charging and commercial backup. The DRI-10 bidirectional 4-port inverter (2x DC and 2x AC) is a reliable, efficient, cost-effective and flexible solution for many advanced energy applications.

Aquion Energy's M-Line modules deliver a unique combination of safety, reliability, life, and sustainability in a cost-effective battery system based on Aquion's proprietary Aqueous Hybrid Ion (AHI™) technology. The M100 module is a 19.2 kilowatt-hour system composed of twelve Aquion S-Line Battery Stacks in a parallel configuration. The module comes equipped with an optional voltage, current and temperature sensing control board that is easily integrated with standard power conditioning systems. The M-Line modules deliver extremely long cycle life, deep depth of discharge and high efficiency, making it an ideal choice for stationary, long-duration, daily cycling applications including off-grid and microgrids, energy management and grid-scale services.

"Bringing Aquion and Princeton Power Systems together for this exceptional project to create the largest AHI battery system is an exciting and rewarding opportunity," explains Darren Hammell, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Princeton Power Systems. "We are confident that the combination of our DRI-10 and Aquion's AHI storage system will serve as a powerful platform to demonstrate a commercially available and robust microgrid solution."

"We are excited to partner with Princeton Power Systems on this project. Our System Integration Laboratory is intended to be the primary internal demonstration Aquion uses when engaging with customers and partners," said Ted Wiley, Vice President, Product & Corporate Strategy, Aquion Energy. "We selected the DRI-10 because of its proven capability and functionality in renewable powered microgrids both on and off the grid. Aquion has several similar microgrid systems planned for deployment around the world in the coming quarters."

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them?

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.
Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development.
