Increase the flexibility of your utility-scale PV assets with ALICE, Latimer Controls' AI-driven solar control and optimization solution.
Introducing ALICE - the Automated Learner for Intermittency Control by Extrapolation - a revolutionary software control solution that transforms solar generation from a liability on the grid to a valuable asset. ALICE allows grid operators to optimize power dispatch from utility scale solar assets while avoiding curtailments. By allowing solar generation to maintain economic value even at high penetration levels, ALICE reduces grid-wide operating costs and makes solar energy a cost-effective and reliable solution for the future.
Accurately Calculate Potential High Limit in Real Time
ALICE continuously reads in real time information from every inverter and processes it with a robust machine learning model to compute the maximum power point at both the inverter and plant level, even when a plant is curtailed.
Optimize Inverter Set Points to Meet Grid Signals
ALICE incorporates a groundbreaking hierarchical control scheme to direct active power setpoints for each inverter. With multiple layers of sophisticated control, ALICE manages power generation to meet automatic generation control and fast frequency response signals with unparalleled precision.
Compatible with Existing Inverter, SCADA and Power Plant Control Hardware
ALICE is vendor agnostic, offering seamless integration with pre-existing embedded systems. As a locally hosted backend software solution, ALICE effectively communicates with plant SCADA, unleashing a host of innovative capabilities for both current and future investments.
