Historical Parallels of Software-Defined Electricity

In the 1970s, the advent of desktop personal computers revolutionized computing technology, opening up new markets and transforming industries. Similarly, today’s power electronics systems operate with large, inefficient devices, lacking intelligence and real-time control directly with electricity.


Software-Defined Electricity represents a groundbreaking advancement, employing Task Oriented Optimal Computing to achieve better data analytics and control of electricity in real-time. This transformative technology is paving the way for a tectonic shift in the power electronics industry, where all systems will integrate Software-Defined Electricity for enhanced visibility, safety, and control.


As the catalyst for transformational advancements in electrification, Software-Defined Electricity holds the key to unlocking a future powered by efficient, sustainable, and intelligent energy systems.

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


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


Electricity generation changed


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


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.
