Track Energy Consumption ... (Steel Pipe Factory)
Energy efficiency is a vital KPI for every process plant and these efficiencies cannot be achieved until all plant energies are monitored and compared.
In Abu Dhabi, UAE Energy agencies have asked all new or old process plants to have a system which can acquire Energy and Water consumption data for non essential loads like Kitchen, Pantries, Toilets and offices.
The concept is to make sure that this data can be compared hourly, daily, weekly, monthly and yearly depending on the dates selected by the user and publish the consumption report.
With ibaPDA data acquisition was a regular task but the challenge was to fetch data from different hour, time or month selected by the user and compare them on single platform.
All data from ibaPDA was pushed to a central database to make it accessible when it is needed.
ibaPDA: As central part of the iba system, ibaPDA has been proving itself as one of the most versatile data acquisition systems for maintenance and production for years. Client-server architecture, flexible recording, simple configuration owing to auto-detect are just some of the convincing features.
ibaLogic is a system for signal processing and automation. The fifth generation of the ibaLogic system, which already functions reliably in many industrial applications, has been programmed in a new way and provided with an up-to-date interface.
ibaAnalyzer-DB, the database interface for ibaAnalyzer, allows for further aggregating the measured data length or time related and storing them along with the calculated characteristic values in databases.
The Advantages :
"The system helped to detect the different consumption times for different areas For example: peak hours of consumptions were easily identified and now maintenance schedules were easy to have based on peak usage time“.
“With database connectivity now customer can initiate energy efficiency plans and plan different measures for Example: wiht long term trends change in energy consumption can be seen over period of months or years .”
