The technology group WÃ¤rtsilÃ¤ announced the release of GEMS 6 (Greensmith Energy Management System, version 6), the latest generation of its software platform serving grid-scale deployments globally. GEMS 6 offers a set of capabilities used to integrate a broad array of generation assets including solar, wind, hydro, storage, and thermal. GEMS 6 is component-neutral to provide maximum flexible and has integrated 16 different batteries to date, each according to the application needs of each project. GEMS 6 can be used independent of energy storage. Using software-based intelligence and machine learning to enhance grid systems and networks, GEMS 6 offers a wide library of algorithms and applications. With GEMS, renewable energy sources and engine systems can now be equally modeled and simulated in a virtual environment using real-time data, which allows GEMS to be lab-tested, rather than on-site, and offers significant cost efficiencies in testing time, outages, and time-to-market. GEMS also integrates weather and load forecast data to optimize an entire grid system. GEMS can operate autonomously and automatically, based on either a rule-based engine or machine-learning, to act and function according to different or specific conditions sensed within integrated systems such as solar and/or the grid itself. GEMS is capable of processing more than 100,000 points of data per second in default mode and uses data analytics to improve the way in which it optimizes energy storage and the overall grid system into which it is integrated.
