IoT Solutions for Power Engineering
New governmental regulations face overall system security, safety and reliability, while commercial environment demands further optimization of the grid performance.
AggreGate SCADA/HMI and other AggreGate-based products recognize a wide range of power engineering tasks and offer a cost-effective solution for diverse energy management objectives:
AggreGate SCADA/HMI is a flexible and secure supervisory control system for the power distribution industry. The system can interface virtually any PLC and RTU, as well as tightly integrate with existing automation systems. A wide range of supported protocols ensure that even the most sophisticated intelligent meter will be connected.
Grid operators having a large number of similar substations have an option to create a reference project modeling a typical substation. Multiple AggreGate servers operating different substations can be joined into a distributed peering network and coordinated through a central server. The primary server will also consolidate all statistical data for reporting purposes.
AggreGate contributes to optimization of the grid performance, visually rendering the bottlenecks and allowing to set up alerts, reports and HMIs that consider economical effectiveness of operations and improve decision making.
Solar and Wind Power
Solar and wind power network operators face a necessity for remote unattended supervision of a large set of similar generation units. In most cases, data it being collected via GPRS/radio modems rather than direct network connection. Areas where AggreGate can help include templated substantion automation, demand change response, distribution automation, energy theft prevention, secure SCADA, what-if analysis, and monitoring of the network.
Wind Power Management
Solar Power Management
AggreGate can provide centralized real-time monitoring, performance optimization analytics and logistics for companies operating hybrid power units. Those units normally handle complicated switching logic maintaining balance between usage of grid power, diesel-generated power, solar and wind power, and accumulated energy. Installed in remote locations for serving geographically disparate telecom sites, those units expose multiple control setpoints and statistical usage metrics, allowing centralized status visualization and reporting, as well as real-time alert dispatching through SMS and email messages.
