Aspects of data science at Redback Technologies
April 2, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Smart solar inverters can be used to store, monitor and manage a home’s solar energy.
We describe a smart solar inverter system with battery which can either operate in an automatic mode or receive commands over a network to charge and discharge at a given rate. In order to make battery storage financially viable and advantageous to the consumers, effective battery scheduling algorithms can be employed. Particularly, when time-of-use tariffs are in effect in the region of the inverter, it is possible in some cases to schedule the battery to save money for the individual customer, compared to the “automatic” mode.
We describe a novel battery scheduling algorithm for residential consumers of solar energy.
We also outline future research directions for the Redback Technologies Research Centre in the Network Intelligence area.
