Energy management systems
A combination of automation and IT to optimize media consumption
The energy management system (abbreviated EMS) is a specialized system that combines industrial automation devices and software (computer and PLC), which aims to manage the use of utilities (gas, electricity, heat, etc.). The system’s goal is to optimize the use of media through more effective use.
Some smaller energy management systems (mainly EMS for investments financed from European funds) are limited to monitoring and reporting to determine the so-called environmental effect (e.g. saved CO2 emissions).
The main functions of EMS are presented below. Depending on the client’s needs and the complexity of the system, the EMS data may implement all or some of the functions.
Reading all parameters related to the system. These are both physical parameters (e.g. temperature, pressure, power, flow) of a given medium (e.g. electricity, gas, water, compressed air), but also the operating parameters of the system itself (e.g. operation of pumps and boilers, valve positions).
Analysis of heat source efficiency, system energy efficiency, potential faults etc.
Accounting for the consumption of utilities, tenants, subcontractors, etc.
Automatic creation of PDF or EXCEL printouts containing customer-specified data.
Presenting data online in a legible and understandable way. Access using a web browser from anywhere on Earth.
SMS alarming, power guards, automatic alarm and priority procedures etc.
Steerage via the Internet any device in any location.
