An Armada Power Grid Optimizer is a small, but powerful device. When installed on an electric water heater and connected to our secure, enterprise software platform, this controller effectively transforms an electric resistive water heater into a rapid-response, energy storage asset without affecting end-user comfort.
Designed to solve some of the power grid’s most pressing concerns, the Grid Optimizer unlocks a myriad of benefits. Five times more cost-effective than batteries for most grid applications, it supports a variety of grid applications including demand response, thermal energy storage, energy arbitrage, renewables integration, time-of-use optimization, fast frequency regulation, cold load pickup support, droop control, and more.
The unobtrusive Grid Optimizer easily attaches to an electric water tank with no required plumbing modifications. Two small, wire probes are positioned to continuously monitor the top and bottom tank temperatures, ensuring hot water remains available to the consumer. The sensors efficiently track power and voltage in real time and the resulting telemetry helps identify leaks, burned out elements, and other tank anomalies.
