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. The primary function of the Exchanger is bi-directional power flow, with each device managing its immediate network area to maintain grid stability. It also replaces the function of converters, inverters, rectifiers and transformers; dynamically managing volatile energy flow.

It has been 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 sum of the technologies it replaces.
