Software Framework for Energy Systems

As the energy industry continues to evolve, changes are happening at a faster rate: costs associated with Distributed Energy Resources (DERs) are dropping, retirement of centralized coal generation is gaining speed, and a desire for smart technologies is creating the need to transform legacy systems.

The RTI Connext® databus provides industrial-strength security and data sharing, vastly improving ways to generate and distribute power today and into the future.

Smart Machine Connectivity and Energy Systems

RTI is the largest software framework company for autonomous systems. RTI Connext, based on the DDS standard, is the world's leading architecture for developing intelligent distributed systems. Connext offers a purely data-centric architecture versus a traditional device-centric solution. Data centricity has an immediate impact on reducing system complexity, enhancing security and enabling automation; device files no longer need to reside in a central database for access across the enterprise.

From massive hydropower dams to the smallest microgrid distribution, Connext delivers a secure data-connectivity platform for all utility automation applications - from the legacy to the future of clean energy generation.


Learn how RTI Connext DDS is proven across the energy industry to connect and secure next-generation systems.

Smart Grid

RTI Connext provides the flexible, connectivity framework required to develop the power grid of the future, while securely incorporating and protecting legacy equipment and protocols.

Distributed Energy Resources (DERs)

RTI Connext enables utilities to integrate DERs to optimize energy production, storage, coordination, monitor system health and adapt to the environment.

Energy Generation

RTI Connext exceeds modern requirements for extreme availability, fault tolerance, scalability, performance and security - all with flexible installation and cutover options.

Success Stories

Largest Power Plant in North America

GC Dam

The US Army Corps of Engineers is replacing the plant's monolithic supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system with a modern distributed system. The system's fundamental communications platform relies on Connext.

Smart Grid Distribution and Control

Microgrids and NI LabVIEW

MicroGrids connect generation, load and storage to optimize usage. Deploying at Toronto Hydro, Connext seamlessly integrates apps, enforces security, and merges NI LabVIEW.

Distributed Power Generation

Siemens Wind Power

Connext enables fast control within wind turbines and distributed gust mitigation across the array. RTI will also integrate with predictive maintenance and business diagnostics.
