Northern Power Systems Builds on Microgrid Experience to Offer Grid Storage Solutions

In-House Power Laboratory Used to Optimize Storage Power Converters and Control Platforms

BARRE, VT--(Marketwired - September 26, 2014) - Northern Power Systems ( (TSX: NPS) grid solutions are installed at many commercial and test sites for the use of storage technologies designed to provide peak shaving, load shifting and grid stabilization. The optimization of power converter and controls technology in NPS' state of the art, permanent magnet direct drive wind turbines has resulted in compact systems with remarkably high power density. This results in a unique combination of performance and reliability under widely varied operating conditions. The patented converter architecture and advanced controls technology is modular, fully customizable and liquid cooled, yielding extremely fast response time.

Northern Power Systems can trace its roots to the integration of complex power systems for applications across the globe, including weather stations in Antarctica.

Jonathan Lynch, Chief Technology Officer at NPS, said, "Northern Power has over 30 years of experience providing quality power products and systems to the utility industry. Our converters are built around a modular architecture and scalable controls in a common chassis that is easily customizable to meet the demands of a wide variety of specifications."
