Historical Parallels of Software-Defined Electricity

In the 1970s, the technology became widely available to shrink inefficient room sized computers to desktop personal computers, opening up a lot of markets that did not exist until that time in the process and laying the groundwork for the reliance on computers that we have today.

 

Power electronics systems of today are made up of multiple, very large devices, often taking up entire rooms operating at very low efficiencies. Software-Defined Electricity is a very powerful technology that flawlessly performs all of the functions of these multiple different power electronics systems with a tiny fraction of the energy and in an order of magnitude smaller footprint. This technology is the catalyst for a revolutionary advancement in power electronics and the real time control and analysis of electricity.

Brief History of Electricity Measurement: From Analog to Digital
An analog industry was born

 

Electrical meters go mainstream leveraging the RMS methodology to measure the amount of electricity sold to our homes and businesses

1890s
Business was good

 

The electrical grid expanded throughout the United States. Its main purpose to was to power relatively static motors and incandescent lights

1890 - 1950s
Electricity use changed

 

With the invention and widespread use of computers and sensitive electronics, the load profile began to shift

1960s
Electricity generation changed

 

The improvement in renewable energy technologies spawned new markets that produce electricity in new ways, shifting the generation profile.

1970s
Old way not working, business continued

 

50 years of maintaining the status quo while electricity generation and consumption evolved resulted in a gigantic void in available data and corresponding solutions. The analog way of measuring electricity is no longer sufficient if the goal is optimum efficiency and stability of electricity supply systems.

1970s - 2016
A digital industry was born

 

3DFS brings to market a new product for and real time digital measurement and correction of electricity, or Software-Defined Electricity ensuring electricity can always be supplied with optimum efficiency.
