FEATURE RESULT BENEFIT
Ordered power tab Calculating, by the algorithm, values of: optimal power level, power level without penalties and safe power level Possible reduction of the costs for ordered power
Boot profiles Recording boot profiles Avoidance of exceeding ordered power during facility start-up
Energy profiles Selection of active power waveform from any period of time for comparison purposes Possibility to compare active power utilization, in different periods of time, on a weekly basis
Electrical network anomalies monitoring In the alarm log, there are records related to the occurring events, e.g. dips, declines, increases The ability to track events on the grid that are related to the quality of supplied energy
Waveforms monitoring The user has the option to perform an analysis using multiple data from various sources on the timeline The correlation of events gives us the opportunity to detect dependencies in the process, which may reduce costs, e.g. by better understanding the process
Reactive power monitoring The platform presents records related to the course of inductive and capacitive reactive power, tg Φ, cos Φ Avoidance of penalties for reactive power and exceeding tg Φ, possibility of optimization
Harmonics monitoring Analyze the harmonics of both voltages and currents Avoid damage to the equipment and devices
Load monitoring Real-time monitoring of many parameters, e.g. current and voltage asymmetry Application of a uniform load on individual phases, maximum use of the available load with even distribution
Efficiency indicators Ability to use predefined performance indicators User receives selected information in one place in form of an easy to use array
Power guard User receives information about the usage of the ordered power and the prediction of power usage in next 15 minutes Avoidance of charges for exceeding ordered power. Very important, especially during summer
Energy usage tab The manager has access to selected period of time in terms of energy consumption. He can correlate data with the current production status and relate to the number of employees on a given shift We gain the possibility of optimal use of the staff resources depending on the production plan. The profit consists in reducing the number of employees at a time when production does not require so much workload
Energy consumption comparison The operator gets charts where he can compare different periods of time in case of energy consumption, e.g. the current and previous week, month or the billing period Constant monitoring and data comparison
General tasks tab Enter tasks on the timeline, e.g. injection molding machine overview Ability to plan services and inspections. You have everything in one place, you do not have to switch between other calendars, save your time

How does optimisation of energy consumption with our platform look in practice? Below you will find a graphic illustrating this process. If you need additional information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We will answer all your questions and clarify any doubts with pleasure. Customer satisfaction is our top priority, which means that when you choose our energy saving solution, you can count on expert service.

Update 2022/06 

Reactive power in AC circuits is a magnitude that describes the pulsing of electrical energy between the elements of an electrical circuit. This energy is not converted into power or heat, but it is necessary for the operation of electrical machines. The energy is taken from the source during part of the period of the AC waveform, stored by the load, and returned to the source during another part of the period.

The occurrence of reactive power (inductive or capacitive) directly translates into expenses incurred by businesses in relation to electricity bills. Reactive power is represented by the parameter tg fi. This parameter should be between 0 and 0.4. If tg fi is not in the specified range, the energy supplier will apply a penalty for excessive reactive power in the utility's power grid.
The presence of reactive power contributes to a number of negative effects:
• the need to install generation and processing equipment with higher power ratings,
• forcing the use of devices with higher rated current and allowable short-circuit current,
• requires the use of larger cross-section cables,
• reduces the capacity of the power supply lines,
• increases active energy drops in transformers, power grids and consumer installations, increases voltage drops in transformers and supply lines.

Currently, the largest supported diameter of the cable on which the transformer can be mounted is about 30 cm. Using this type of transformer we can measure currents in the range from 1600 A to 6000 A.

Yes, a phase angle tracking algorithm φ is implemented using machine learning and will be implemented in IPOE.

The shortest measurement period required is a work week, a weekend and three days of the following week (so a total of 10 days). It is important that the measurement period includes the weekend. However, it is necessary to take into consideration the operation profile of the plant - if it is variable in time, the measurements should also include the time when the plant operates in a different profile.

Reactive power compensation in the power grids consists of the combination of energy loads in such way that the character of the grid meets the requirements for maintaining proper grid parameters. Generally speaking, an unfavorable power factor resulting from a large share of inductive loads can be reduced (compensated) by including capacitive loads in the power grid (or vice versa in the case of a predominance of capacitive loads).

Data are read from the instrument every second.

Yes, IPOE allows integration with a pv inverter. Thanks to the use of a bidirectional analyzer, IPOE gives full control over energy flows from and to the power grid, as well as provides instantaneous and archival data on energy production. Additionally, IPOE enables meeting the requirement of electronic excise register in the field of electricity production for entities that are obliged to keep excise duty records.

No, with the use of IPOE it is possible to monitor the consumption of gas, water, heat and cold.

• Real-time measurement,
• High scalability of the solution,
• Non-invasive installation,
• Optimization (of ordered and reactive power),

• Configurable KPI1* and dashboards.

 

* KPIs (key performance indicators) - key performance indicators or key measures of achievement.

Yes, the analyzers are certified to IEC 61557-12, the standard for measuring and monitoring electrical parameters in power distribution grids.

The range of applications of IPOE is very wide - from monitoring main power connections, through selected circuits, to individual lines or machines. There is also no limit to the number of analyzers, which work with IPOE.

To a large extent, the efficiency of electrical machinery and equipment.

Trusted Product - certificate


The Intelligent Energy Optimization Platform (Inteligentna Platforma Optymalizacji Energii) has been certified as a "Trusted Product" by TUV Nord, a company with over 140 years of tradition that supports quality-related activities of entrepreneurs. The audit report confirms the compliance of the IPOE product's performance in terms of measured voltage parameters, which are specified in the PN-EN-50160:2010/A3:2019 standard. This standard addresses the parameters of the supply voltage in public power grids. Specifically, we are referring to voltage, frequency and harmonic distortion measurements. Additionally, during the audit, other areas affecting the quality of the product offered were also examined - such as the software development process, procedures for deploying and launching the platform at customers' sites, the supplier chain, the equipment used to conduct measurements, and many others. Following the audit, the Intelligent Energy Optimization Platform was awarded a verified product certificate, thus confirming compliance with the requirements of the standard mentioned above.
