The Cat® MMC-M is designed for large industrial/commercial installations. The MMC-M will integrate a variety of traditional and renewable energy sources to provide overall monitoring and control of the assets. These assets may be either located at a common installation or dispatched over a wider region.

Application
The Cat® Microgrid Master Controller integrates the photovoltaic system, generator set, and energy storage system to maximize penetration from renewable energy sources and system reliability.
