The Faraday Exchanger
Definition: A managed, high speed, power flow control device that dynamically maintains target voltage, frequency and power factor efficiently over a range of operation.
The Faraday Exchanger is a hardware device which operates in isolation and independent of any central network management, each device managing its immediate network area to maintain a stable, bi-directional power flow. However, it has also been deliberately designed to be scalable and operate as part of a network, creating a highly stable system capable of managing major fluctuations in electricity supply and demand.
The Faraday Exchanger is complementary to both existing distribution networks and other technologies, improving performance and efficiency whilst being significantly cheaper than the technologies it replaces.
Based on extensive analysis of the fundamentals of physics, theory from a number of academic streams, and using the principles of Artificial Intelligence and network optimisation, the Faraday Exchanger has been designed from the ground up to increase grid system flexibility and provide much better demand management capability than currently available.
