The upgrades to FE’s control room ties all aspects of the microgrid project together. The FE control room is the nerve center of the FE grid. All aspects of the grid are controlled and monitored from this location. The upgrades to the control room will give the FE operators the latest technology in the controls of an electric grid. The upgrade will enable the FE operators to efficiently control the LM6000 as well as our additional generating units, monitor the loading on the upgraded underground and overhead cables, and have faster connectivity to our automated systems to reduce response times.
