Dynapower, the world’s leading independent manufacturer of energy storage inverters and fully-integrated energy storage systems, today announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued the company a patent for its Dynamic Transfer technology which enables grid resiliency for its utility and commercial & industrial customers. The patented technology enables the seamless transition of an energy storage system with a Dynapower inverter from grid-tied to backup battery power in the event of a grid disturbance.
“This technology enables our utility customers and their ratepayers to have increased energy surety and provides resiliency from energy storage systems using Dynapower energy storage inverters,” said Chip Palombini, sales manager for Dynapower’s Energy Storage Group.
Dynapower’s Dr. Apurva Somani, R & D Lead, and Palombini are inventors of United States patent 9.819,190. Dynamic Transfer was designed to address energy resiliency issues, and more importantly, to ensure power surety for utilities and commercial and industrial users of Dynapower energy storage inverters and systems.
This is critical as the Electric Power Research Institute estimates that the economic costs of power outages amount to about $120 billion annually in the United States.
“Dynamic Transfer can help reduce the economic impact of power outages significantly by providing facilities with Dynapower inverters and energy storage systems the ability to seamlessly transition to backup battery power during a grid disturbance,” said Adam Knudsen, president of Dynapower, adding: “This is critically important for many facilities where even a short interruption in power can result in lost data, production time or food spoilage. Dynamic Transfer ensures their critical processes continue without interruption of power during a grid disturbance.”
Dynapower inverters and energy storage systems featuring the now-patented Dynamic Transfer capability have been installed to help power island nations with 100 percent renewables as well as help reduce the electricity bills and provide critical backup power at colleges, resorts, malls, factories, breweries, wineries, and sports stadiums.
