Princeton Power Systems (PPS) has been awarded a contract from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to develop advanced power conversion technologies under the Solar Energy Grid Integration Systems program.
The research and development grant will enable a complete design for a 100 kW demand-response inverter based on PPS' proprietary inverter technology. The design will be optimized for low-cost, high-quality manufacture, and will integrate control capabilities such as dynamic energy storage and demand response through load control.
The initial nine-month performance period includes two one-year options. The contract is worth $6.5 million if both options are executed.
