Northern Power’s site controller for energy storage applications is fully integrated with the NPS FP2000 power converter system. It provides the single point of contact between an integrated NPS ESS and an external SCADA system for real-time control and monitoring.

Northern Power’s site controller contains the following components:
- Site Control PLC
- Site Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) / Data Logger
- Human / Machine Interface (HMI)
