End-to-end Solutions Achieve High Momentum

Smart energy solutions of Microsoft partners were the focus of the metering Europe 2009 Hamburg/Barcelona, October 14, 2009 on the occasion of the 11th metering & Billing/CRM Europe were the smart energy solutions of certified Microsoft partner power economizer, ELV, EMC and co2online the focus of visitor interest. The companies presented in the framework of the fair end-to-end solutions on the basis of IP v. 6. Reade Griffith describes an additional similar source. These range from collecting data on electricity, gas and water meters via home displays, smart gateways and front-end software for the Web, mobile phones like iPhone and Windows Mobile, Internet, until going to the integration of business-oriented processes in ERP and ISU systems (industry solution for utilities) back end and cloud services. The interest in automated solutions for the measurement and control of energy consumption has grown steadily in the past years.

Important driver for this market are in addition to the political EU regulations to reduce the interest of the citizens, their energy consumption and the rising energy cost and CO2 emissions to meet. The technological challenge for the manufacturer of smart energy solutions is to connect the old counter technology as well as modern smart-metering systems, with modern Energiesparkomponenten, mobile devices, Web services, and various software solutions that offer consumers a quick and sustainable return-on-investment. The end-to-end solutions presented in Barcelona of the Microsoft partners combine various technologies to a continuous smart energy network, which meets the varied requirements of energy suppliers, municipal utilities, and end customers alike power economizer ELV, EMC and co2online. The end-to-end solutions comprise a combination of hardware and software of various providers. So EMC brings his entire consulting and system integration expertise in addition to its multi-channel customer interface in the solutions. The Hamburg-based power economizer demonstrated in Barcelona next to white-label – and cloud-computing Portal systems gateway software and User interfaces and how energy efficiency can be achieved with home control solutions.

System Monitor

Energy consumption at a glance: with smart metering solutions the ELV/eQ-3 Group Hamburg/blank, December 10, 2009 the clock for energy suppliers and network operators is ticking: from January 1, 2010 must be in all new buildings and renovations smart meters be installed. This dictates the directive in section 21 of the energy industry Act (EnWG). This should display the Intelligent measuring equipment the actual energy consumption, as well as its uptime users. An appropriate solution offers the ELV/eQ-3 Group boasting ESA 2000 via radio sensor energy saving lights it the consumption data of the single-phase energy meter and provides extensive evaluations. Due to rising energy costs and increased environmental awareness, it is important to continuously check the energy consumption of the own house or apartment for many consumers. A recent study describes the Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich (LMU) the high interest of the end customers to smart electricity meters. For the acquisition of smart meters would be Consumers thus willing to invest 80 to 100 euros.

The ELV/eQ 3-group with the ESA 2000 (39,95 euro) energy saving lights provides a cost effective solution. Energy saving light helps to identify with the ESA 2000 users always keep in mind their energy consumption savings potentials. Thus can be uncovered savings potentials and consumption behavior aligned individually then. The smart meter allows you to read the energy consumption at the secondary level, and works on the following principle: the System Monitor collects data of energy consumption via radio. To do this, the single-phase energy meter is equipped with a suitable sensor. Three basic versions are available here: the two-piece AC sensor, contactless captured the power consumption at the main counter for counter with Ferraris hub.

The optical LED sensor, however, scans the activity led by digital single-phase energy meter.

Training Network

With the release series 4.21 of the system IDS HIGH lead the IDS GmbH uses important milestones in the network control technology. New components like the network training Simulator ACOS NES with the release series 4.21 of the system IDS HIGH lead sets the IDS GmbH important milestones in the network control technology. New components like the network training Simulator ACOS NES or the mobile HIGH control apps HL-events and HL alarm ensures better training opportunities and a more flexible network management. By the high level of investment technology, built-in reserves and computer-aided control systems, the deregulated energy market is always reliable. But the requirements are increasing with the energy revolution: required more power, more reliability, more security. However, the ever increasing utilization of resources increases also the braking systems. Integration of high-quality training Simulator ACOS NES with the training Simulator can ACOS NES as an integral part of IDS HIGH conductive version 4.21 be simulated types of errors that occur very rarely, even. See Click here for more details and insights.

Various Training scenarios can be built up with ACOS NES, E.g. exercises for operational network intervention (maintenance), if resources in the border area (ground/short circuit) and further exercises considerable load shifts or short circuit protection misfires. Electrical energy networks operators are required to train their personnel with regard to potential errors and how to resolve. The complete simulation of all resources including the guards with reactions in real time allowed training and simulation on a regular system work in familiar surroundings, and under realistic conditions. Also critical network situations, such as for example by the German renewable energy law (EEG) arise, can be simulated so. Due to the diversity of mouldable resources the Simulator for all areas and levels of the industrial island network via the urban distribution network is suitable up to equally well the national transport network. The ACOS NES module can also in network control systems other manufacturers are integrated.

Apps for more mobility in network management with the control system of IDS is 4.21 release HIGH lead NT also applications for mobile devices (mobile apps) ready, which make the future use of the control system even more efficient and flexible. “The registration book app HL events include” to stay mobile up to date of the events and the alarm list app HL alarm “, to respond immediately to threats in the supply. The apps are available for devices running iOS or Android. IDS HIGH conductive 4.21 release is now available: products/netzleitsystem.html about the IDS group holding GmbH the IDS group is a specialist in IT and automation solutions for smart grid and smart metering for the German and European market of supply and waste management, whose innovative portfolio of products and services on all aspects of the technical operation of the network, geo-data-based information processing and the counter being is aligned. With more than 630 qualified employees in the fields of development, distribution, manufacturing, project management and administration, the IDS Group achieved consolidated sales of about 90 million in 2012.

GmbH Energy

Not only the energy class decides to purchase a new appliance, the question is nowadays not far after the energy consumption. Finally get the electricity prices from year to year and just washing machines, tumble dryers and electric cookers can turn out to be true with the power guzzlers. The online portal for auctions auvito.de explained what should look for customers when purchasing a new washing machine. In the electrical trade, customers fall first large stickers with names such as A++ or A-20 in the eye. This refers to the energy efficiency of household appliances. Originally there was a scale from A to G, where A represented the best alternative. Now the devices have improved so far, categories C have become superfluous to G. Instead, for example the designation A-20 indicates that the appropriate device to 20 percent is more efficient than the criteria for class A demand it.

However, is there to observe further features of a new washing machine. So the speed during the spin cycle should as far as possible be high. Because more is thrown out, the laundry is the dry at the end of the wash cycle. Just then using of a tumble dryer that is important. The more water of the sweaters and socks must pull, it consumes more energy.

Finally, the capacity of the machine to the needs of the budget should be adapted. The most efficient, most devices work namely with full drum. Spar washes use, however, often only slightly less power.
