VHPready Gateway

The VHPready standard applies to the communication link between the LichtBlick SchwarmDirigent® as a control Center (CC) and a decentralized technical unit (TU). The technical unit consists of a generating plant or a consumer and a controller with an integrated VHPready application. The interoperability and security when linking technical units to SchwarmDirigent via VHPready minimalizes effort and expense for the integration of new technical units. It fuels competition and thus maximize revenue for users. Change-out of a technical unit from one control center to another one is simplified.

LichtBlick offers an economical benefit by establishing the link between the TU and the energy market. With standardization of VHPready the integration in the energy market is easy and convenient.
