Company

Power Control Solutions (PCS) was founded in 2004 to focus on the application of high-speed communications, advanced distributed computing technology, and artificial intelligence based modeling techniques to the domain of power systems load control, power dispatch, and energy management.  As power demand increases, and the complexity of the power supply and distribution systems increases, the advantages of having intelligent, fine-grained, and automated load control and management systems in place becomes readily apparent.  Currently the power distribution system suffers from a lack of technological modernization that unnecessarily increases the cost of electricity and contributes to occurrences of power events such as the one in August 2003 in the New York / Ohio / Ontario region.  PCS provides solutions that address these issues through the application of advanced technologies from the areas of distributed computing and artificial intelligence to the challenges facing the power industry.

Since its founding, PCS has seen increasing interest in the areas of modernization of the power grid.  The Department of Energy, the utilities, and large power consumers are recognizing the benefits that come from modernizing the power infrastructure in a similar way to how other industries have been modernized in recent years.  As others recognize these benefits, we seem to be approaching a tipping point

Power Control Solutions is poised to take advantage of this sea change in order to become the predominate provider to technology for modernizing the power industry.  This industry, which used to be considered a relatively closed and slow to change market opportunity, is about to become a predominate purchaser of technology.

But the power industry is still a very specialized industry, and although there will be many interested in selling technology into this emerging market, it is only those companies, such as Power Control Solutions, that have an in-depth understanding of the complexity of the domain, and the needs of the customers, that will become major contributors to this Herculean effort of bringing the power generation and distribution sector into the the 21st century.

Welcome

Power Control Solutions provides technical solutions to the power industry for the modernization of the electric power infrastructure through the integration of high-speed communications and advanced information technology.

PCS’ solution is an end-to-end platform that provides a bi-directional distributed object communications platform between the power producers and the power consumers; an intelligent, fine-grained load shedding based demand management system; a GUI based visualization SCADA system; and an Economic Dispatch modeling and deployment framework.

The recent spiking in the cost of producing peak demand energy, combined with the recent blackouts due to the difficulty of the current transmission and distribution infrastructure to handle the increasing demand for power, has caused many to reexamine the electric power system in the United States.  The conclusions are that the current system is desperately in need of modernization in order to continue to meet the electricity needs of the country into the future.  The Department of Energy has identified the issues and is beginning the process of bringing together leaders from the power industry to address these issues.  The DoE has named the effort to modernize the electric power industry as the GridWise(tm) initiative.  Power Control Solutions provides technical solutions to the power industry that enable the building of the GridWise(tm) vision.

GridWise(tm) is an entirely new way to think about how we generate, distribute and use energy. Using advanced communications and up-to-date information technology, GridWise(tm) will improve coordination between supply and demand, and enable a smarter, more efficient, secure and reliable electric power system.

Sample Page

This is an example page. It’s different from a blog post because it will stay in one place and will show up in your site navigation (in most themes). Most people start with an About page that introduces them to potential site visitors. It might say something like this:

Hi there! I’m a bike messenger by day, aspiring actor by night, and this is my blog. I live in Los Angeles, have a great dog named Jack, and I like piña coladas. (And gettin’ caught in the rain.)

…or something like this:

The XYZ Doohickey Company was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality doohickeys to the public ever since. Located in Gotham City, XYZ employs over 2,000 people and does all kinds of awesome things for the Gotham community.
