Energy data collection relieves energy-intensive companies
Energy data collection encompasses all measures for recording and analyzing energy consumption data in a company or household. By accurately recording energy consumption, potential savings can be identified and effective measures can be developed to increase energy efficiency. Energy data is usually recorded using smart meters or sensors that record consumption values in real time. This data is then evaluated and visualized using software solutions. Energy data logging can record not only electricity consumption, but also water, gas and heating energy consumption. By continuously recording and analyzing energy data, companies and households can reduce their energy costs and make a contribution to climate protection at the same time.
As part of the EEG regulation, it is not only particularly energy-intensive companies that decide to optimize their energy consumption. It is often necessary to record both process data and energy data simultaneously in order to identify correlations. With the scalable system from Delphin, this is exactly what is possible. The measurement technology devices can be installed decentrally on the processes and record analog values in parallel to control systems via mA interfaces. Alternatively, they can be connected via fieldbus. Meter readings are recorded via digital inputs. The ProfiMessage devices cumulate the counter pulses into time-synchronized power and work values. The data can then be clearly displayed parallel to the process values with ProfiSignal can be evaluated and printed out as reports.
Application highlights of process and energy data acquisition
- Development of a combined energy and process measurement network
- Stationary energy data acquisition
- Self-sufficient and secure energy data acquisition without a PC
- Simple analysis of the relationships between process characteristics and energy consumption
- Monitoring consumption and performance
Practical example of process and energy data acquisition
Combined energy and process data acquisition in titanium production
The production of titanium is a particularly energy-intensive process. At the same time, a particularly high product quality must be guaranteed. Titanium is a high-purity and very expensive material. A Delphin measuring network with message devices was set up to analyze and monitor energy consumption throughout the plant. The performance data is recorded in the Delphin system via a connection to existing power measurement units. Important process parameters are recorded in parallel. In this way, the manufacturer can simultaneously document the quality of its product in the manufacturing process and monitor its energy consumption and avoid overruns during expensive electricity tariff periods.
