Intelligent management of energy data
Data is information and “information is power”.
For any facility or building, this statement is completely true, both literally and figuratively. The more you understand your energy data, the greater the benefit you can obtain.
By having both electrical data – current, voltage, power, energy, etc. – and contextual data – operation characteristics, production data, external climate data, etc. – at your disposal, you can optimize the energy consumed and avoid costly inefficiencies.
Continuous improvement cycle: define, measure, understand, act and control
The energy digitalization strategy should be based on:
Define which are the electrical and energy parameters whose information is considered important to improve your energy consumption.
Measure all those electrical and energy parameters that will feed the management systems in charge of monitoring and control.
Understand how the infrastructure operates on a day-to-day basis and where we may have points for improvement.
Act by proposing solutions and actions based on available information.
Control that the proposals implemented and actions carried out comply with the expected results.
Smart Panels, software and digital services to implement your energy digitization strategy.
Once you have “built” your smart panel, energy management platforms are specially designed to monitor, analyze and control the electrical distribution system, providing tools for:
Real-time energy monitoring: you will be able to visualize energy events as they occur, as well as usage and consumption fluctuations in real time.
Data visualization and analysis: you will be able to visualize energy and consumption data in graphs and reports, with functions for comparison, analysis and adaptation to your needs; detecting trends, energy quality problems and events, improvement opportunities, etc.
Alarm and event management: receive instant alarms in case of events or problems. Get sequential information to contextualize the failure, analyze and find the root cause of the incident and proactively manage problems.
Management platform for IoT devices: easy connection of multiple smart meters, controllers and sensors to the energy management platform.
From this point on, infinite possibilities of analysis and questions open up that you will be able to answer:
Last year, which processes/lines had the highest energy consumption?
What energy use intensity (kWh/product) do I apply to each of my range of manufactured products?
Does the actual consumption pattern match the hours and intensity of use of the facility?
Which equipment should I prioritize in the next maintenance planning?
If there is an event or failure, will my critical processes and devices remain operational?
