North Dakota Patent of the Month – August 2023

Blue Water Resolute (BWR Innovations®) develops technology to automate legacy equipment and innovate fuel cell technology. This includes improving backup power systems to function during emergencies. The company has recently patented a remotely controlled electrical power generating system aimed at optimizing backup power systems everywhere.

At the heart of BWR Innovations’ creation is a system that combines multiple power sources to deliver a reliable energy supply. This system seamlessly integrates a fuel cell and an electrical storage unit, interconnected through a cutting-edge inverter. The result? A system that not only generates power but can also be remotely controlled and adapted to changing circumstances.

One of the standout features of this innovation is its remote controllability. With an external controller, operated by a utility or managing entity, users can effortlessly enable or disable the power output. This means that, in times of high demand or during power emergencies, this system can be seamlessly connected to the AC load bus, providing a safe and reliable source of electricity.

The intelligence of BWR Innovations’ system doesn’t stop at remote control. The controller is equipped with the ability to sense and adjust the phase, frequency, and magnitude of the power output to match the AC voltage on the load bus. This advanced adaptation ensures a smooth and efficient transition of power, minimizing disruptions and optimizing energy utilization.

As technology evolves, so does our approach to power generation. BWR Innovations is at the forefront of this evolution, transforming backup power from a basic necessity to a sophisticated solution that adapts to our needs. With their externally-controllable electrical power generating system, the future of energy resilience looks brighter than ever.
