Abstract
IPERC will further develop our Intelligent Power Controller (IPC), an intelligent power management system, to reduce fuel consumption, decrease maintenance requirements and improve operational capabilities for the US military. We will refine a plug-and-play power grid that can be used across a broad range of power generation and loads characteristic of Marine Corps needs. The Intelligent Power Controller (IPC) consists of artificial intelligence software contained within a compact, portable hardware casing. The plugand-play integrated devices of the IPC are able to learn from experience, self-correct and predict future performance. It is deployable across a decentralized network of energy generation or energy consumption equipment and can communicate with multiple IPCs. The IPC is an advanced modeling system which fundamentally changes the structure of supervisory controls and eliminates the need for centralized SCADA systems.
