S&C Electric Company Inc. Key Developments

S&C Electric Company and XetaWave Launch New SpeedNet™ SDR Software Defined Radios

S&C Electric Company announced the new SpeedNet SDR Software Defined Radios, which combines S&C's field-proven mesh-radio technology with the software-defined radio platform from XetaWave. The SpeedNet SDR will support ultra-high frequency (UHF) bands, between 406 430-MHz and 450 “ 470-MHz, and will be used in S&C's self-healing distribution automation systems around the world. The new radios are being deployed on the Isle of Wight, off the coast of the United Kingdom, where they are being used with S&C's IntelliRupter® PulseClosers and IntelliTeam® to reduce the frequency and duration of power outages on the island. The new SpeedNet SDR offering will help expedite smart grid deployments globally, and ensure these solutions reach full potential backed by a reliable, effective communication network. The SpeedNet SDR has received its FCC and IC certifications and CE conformity mark allowing it to be used in smart grid applications wherever the UHF 400-MHz bands are available. Subsequent certifications for South Africa, South America and Central America are in the approval process. The SpeedNet SDR will be used where S&C's SpeedNet 900-MHz mesh radio operations band is not available or when licensed frequencies are preferred by utility customers. The radio offers reliable Ethernet and serial connectivity, layer3 wireless mesh bridging and highly available mesh connectivity. The SpeedNet SDR has modulation levels up to 32QAM that provide the industry's higher level of data throughput using licensed 12.5-KHz channels. XetaWave's software-defined radio platform is incredibly flexible and scalable, allowing for multiple data speeds, channel sizing and modulations such that customers can optimize throughput and range. XetaWave is manufacturing the radios in its 17,000 square-foot facility in Louisville, Colo., with S&C serving as a value added reseller.

S&C Electric Company Secures Contract from Ergon Energy to Provide 20 S&C PureWave(R) Community Energy Storage Systems

S&C Electric Company announced it was awarded a contract by Ergon Energy, an Australian utility, to provide 20 S&C PureWave(R) Community Energy Storage Systems for the utility's Grid Utility Support Systems (GUSS). The storage systems will be used to improve the power reliability and efficiency on constrained single-wire high-voltage distribution lines, commonly known as single wire earth return (SWER) lines. Ergon Energy will also be using S&C's IntelliTeam(R) DEM Distributed Energy Management System to optimize and control the fleet of CES units throughout their SWER network.

S&C Energy Storage System to Provide Grid Support for PJM

S&C Electric Company announced the deployment of six 25-kW PureWave Community Energy Storage systems at its global headquarters in Chicago. The 150-kW energy storage system provides fast-response frequency regulation for the PJM market. Ancillary grid services, such as frequency regulation, are crucial for maintaining the stability and reliability of the power system. Frequency regulation is used to minimize the mismatch between generation and loads by quickly adjusting generation output to maintain the grid's ideal frequency -- 60 Hz in parts of the world and 50 Hz in others. Historically, fossil-fueled fired generating plants have provided a majority of such services, but response times often exceeded 20 minutes. S&C is selling its CES-stored electricity to PJM through Intelligent Generation, which offers a networked software platform that facilitates optimization and bidding of distributed energy resources into wholesale electricity markets.
