Raleigh, N.C.-based Optimal Technologies International Inc., a developer of technologies to optimize power grid systems, has announced the commercial release of its advanced energy management power flow analysis system technology (AEMPFAST), an analytical, planning and operational platform that provides visibility over a utility network to maximize power generation, transmission and distribution.

According to the company, AEMPFAST has the potential to eradicate blackouts, reduce costs for energy producers and end users, create more reliable and efficient power, and lower greenhouse gas emissions.

AEMPFAST features proprietary resource sensitivity index technology, which measures the performance and reliability of locations in the power grid to prioritize and optimally manage all its resources.

"The current grid system has no central operating system, no brain to connect the nerves and parts that continue to be added," says Roland Schoettle, Optimal founder and CEO. "It must be optimized to meet 21st century energy requirements and address our growing environmental challenges. AEMPFAST makes the grid smart by showing in detail all parts of energy usage and providing actionable recommendations on how to deliver positive change at the system level. The result is maximized efficiency within our existing power networks."

According to Optimal, AEMPFAST can also minimize congestion on the power grid by identifying and ranking critical points and identify the most effective placement of new power sources to maximize their benefits, including renewable energy systems such as wind and solar.
