An energyTRADE set-up is designed in accordance with the properties of the plant and its interfaces. The figure below shows a set-up with two databases being the interface between energyTRADE and the SCADA and the BRP. It is also possible to have a set-up where the communication is directly with the SCADA and energyTRADE can be set-up using the protocols needed.
Simplified energyTRADE set-up example at the plant. Each set-up is individually made according to technology, preconditions and other requirements at the plant. In this set-up example an indirect DB interfaces is made, but direct interface set-up is possible depending on requirements and preconditions.
