Smart Grid Store

Smart grid store is a distribution that combines BTrDB, DISTIL, Mr. Plotter and ancillary tools for configuration and management. It is a recent effort to package the research and tools developed in the ARPA-E Microsynchrophasors for Distribution Systems project into an easily installed and managed unit for use by industry. We are partnered with PingThings, Inc to make this stack available for use by industry. [link]
