Opus One Solutions is a software engineering and solutions company with the vision of a Connected Distributed Energy Network. Through GridOS®, its intelligent energy networking platform, Opus One optimizes complex power flows to deliver real-time energy management to distribution utilities and other managers of distributed energy resources (DERs). GridOS is modular, scalable and integrates seamlessly with existing data systems to unlock greater potential for DERs, including renewable generation, energy storage and responsive demand.
GridOS is the leading software solution for real-time, model-based, 3-phase AC unbalanced decision-making for DERs on the distribution network. The software provides multiple benefits: it gives full visibility into the physics of the distribution grid, as operated, which improves operations and planning capabilities; it enables adaptive control of DERs, which allows those DERs to be engaged for grid support or other utility objectives; and finally, it unlocks the potential for new utility business models based on transactive energy.
GridOS can take <1% visibility (a handful of sensors) and paint a 100% picture of the real-time physics of the distribution grid in a variety of commercial settings. GridOS can solve >10 million partial differential equations, on a seconds-by-seconds basis, and converge with 99% accuracy to model the distribution grid in real time. It’s the world’s first solution enabling 100% penetration of distributed, renewable energy on electricity grids by solving interconnection challenges facing distribution utilities today.
