ONE-CYCLE CONTROL NEWS  

OCC Delivers Smart Grid Solution to Department of Energy (continue): The hardware-based control enables extremely fast response and a >10x reduction in complexity to achieve unmatched performance and reliability, necessary for large-scale widely deployed real-time power quality control and grid stabilization. OCC, Inc. has demonstrated a 40 kVA OCC- RPSI with ultra-fast, precise, and high-quality, bidirectional flow of P and Q with >0.99 power factor, ~1% total harmonic distortion, ~100s of microseconds rail-to-rail step response, and 97% efficiency. OCC-RPSI delivers unmatched speed, precision, and smoothness for step response or continuous adjustment in P or Q to enable real-time control of grid voltage/frequency necessary for effective grid stabilization. The OCC-RPSI is fundamental to DOE’s mission of grid modernization and increased renewables penetration.


OCC Enters Pentagon May 24, 2010: U.S. Dept. of the Army Annual Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Achievement Award ceremony at the Pentagon. This year 11 teams were selected of 471 eligible projects, where the One-Cycle Control (OCC) team was the only recipient in the area of power electronics. The Army emphasizes that the award is “extremely competitive” and “is given to the best Army SBIR projects based on originality of research, relevance to the Army's mission, commercialization potential, and the overall performance on the project.” Continue next page.

CEC Manager Lozano Visits OCC February 17, 2011: California Energy Commission Program Manager Michael Lozano visited  OCC. During his visit, the OCC team demonstrated the OCC-Peak Load Reduction (PLR) system with energy storage featuring four-quadrant dynamic range and ~100s of microseconds seamless rail-to-rail real power (P) and reactive power (Q) step response. The OCC-PLR is a must for grid support or customer rate reduction. Mr. Lozano is pleased about the progress.

OCC Delivers Smart Grid Solution to Department of Energy August 14, 2010: OCC, Inc. developed Reactive Power Supply Inverter (RPSI) to enable distributed energy resources to rapidly deliver/absorb real power (P) and reactive power (Q) to/from the grid to stabilize grid frequency and voltage. The OCC-RPSI is based on breakthrough OCC technology that delivers a new paradigm: 4 quadrant conversion (+/-P, +/-Q) of 3-phase power.
