    Comments Off on Spanish DSO Selects Advanticsys Monitoring Solutions for District Heating and Cooling Project

    Advanticsys extends its projects portfolio with an automated meter reading project in one of the largest District Heating/Cooling networks in the south of Europe, operated by Spanish company Sampol. In particular, this project, located in Palma (Majorca – Spain) provides heating and cooling to the Balearic Islands University (UIB) and the Balearic Islands Innovation Park “Parc Bit”. Built in 2000, it comprises a tri-generation plant providing heating and/or cooling to 25 different customers.

    Sampol, as DHC operator, requested an end-to-end solution for remotely collecting meters data previously installed. Advanticsys deployed a system based on its datalogger MPC-330 with M-Bus interfaces to read data from Kamstrup meters and to send them periodically through csv files to a remote server. In parallel, a Modbus TCP connection was enabled to support real time data collection from company SCADA.

    Comments Off on Advanticsys M2M monitoring solutions enhance Kliux Energies self-consumption installations

    Kliux Energies has selected ADVANTICSYS remote monitoring technology to manage their renewable-energy generation facilities. Two Spanish technology companies joining their strengths in the quest for a quality product in the energy market.
    Kliux Energies is a Spanish company with a global presence in distributed energy solutions and energy generated at site of use, tailor-made to the client’s specifics needs. Kliux has worldwide exclusivity rights to manufacture and sell the Kliux Zebra vertical-axis wind turbine (developed by Geolica Innovations) which also integrates into hybrid systems with solar photovoltaic technology.

    By combining a vertical axis wind turbine from Kliux Energies and solar photovoltaic panels, customers are able to make the most of the resources offered by the sun and wind, thus optimizing the power generation hours, while making it possible to supply 100% of the electricity consumption of an average household.
    Regardless of the season or the weather, the dual wind solar system will supply the power needed throughout the year. It also reduces customer dependence of the electrical system and, thus, avoids the impact of the continued increases in the cost of electricity or the occasional power outages.
    To make it easier for remote tracking and monitoring of the facility, an ADVANTICSYS MPC-143 controller, equipped with a built-in GSM/GPRS modem, has been set up for remote telemetry which virtually covers 100% of the area by taking advantage of the cellular network deployment.

    This agreement, which is framed within Advanticsys’ worldwide operational strategy, is seeking to give a boost to the renewable industry by harnessing its efficiency and productivity by means of M2M technology, previously implemented in other areas such as energy efficiency or environmental monitoring.

    Comments Off on ADVANTICSYS to exhibit its smart energy solutions at European Utility Week 2014

    ADVANTICSYS has confirmed its participation at the European Utility Week 2014 in Amsterdam, November 4-6. Our latest monitoring & control products and solutions for energy distribution grid, renewables micro-generation systems, energy efficiency or smart water solutions will be shown at booth 4.J36.
     
    Grid monitoring and management solutions
     
    European Utility Week 2014, is an essential 3 days in the diary of every smart utility professional. Europe’s biggest smart utility event puts the focus on innovation for 2014. The event will showcase the latest in the power and utility sector, focusing on five megatrends:

    • The Grid and Renewables: Taking a deep dive into the future grid. One that will be fit for purpose for intermittent generation coupled with traditional base load supply.
    • Energy Storage: A key piece in the new energy mix, exploring its role in frequency regulation, smoothing intermittent power and the impact of behind the meter storage.
    • Smart Metering, ICT & Grid security: Technology and data are driving the new grid, from operational efficiency, billing, through to asset management. We look at business models, trends and implementation roadmaps and case studies.
    • Smart Home end users & cities: What impact will the smart connected home and city have on the energy mix? How are sustainable policies effecting the energy mix in built environments?
    • Smart Water: Produced in partnership with the International Water Association, focusses on the commonalities between the energy and water sector when it comes to smart grids, smart meter roll-outs and Big Data.

  • Advanced M2M technology enables real-time monitoring of the entire network of Georgian State Electrosystems power substations
    Advanced M2M technology enables real-time monitoring of the entire network of Georgian State Electrosystems power substations
    Comments Off on Advanced M2M technology enables real-time monitoring of the entire network of Georgian State Electrosystems power substations

    ADVANTICSYS successfully completed an ambitious project in Georgia, a country at the crossroad of Eastern Europe and Eastern Asia with major hydroelectric resources exploited mostly by Georgian State Electrosystem (GSE) , a hundred percent state-owned company that seeks to increase the reliability of substations to improve and secure energy supply to companies in the country while reducing costs.
     
    How can we monitor the substations status, with real-time detailed information? ADVANTICSYS has developed a monitoring system able to acquire and transmit data of all substations this energy giant has in the region of Kakheti and send them to the control center, located in the capital city Telavi.
     
    With aging substations, with a risk of blackouts and increasingly higher maintenance costs, GSE sought ways to improve its operation, a feasible goal through remote monitoring, which can process, display and archive the data into HMI (Human Machine Interface), with simple graphs with information on the status of the stations through, for example, Single line diagrams. ADVANTICSYS proposed an all-in-one solution (including hardware and software) through the use of MPC devices (Multi Protocol Controllers) , comprising communication protocols – ranging from measurement of voltage, current and power, to the circuit breakers status – providing a full overview of each substation, with more than 50 simultaneous measurement points. Thus, thanks to the MPC controllers, information registered by all sensors is integrated and transmitted to a control center via a secure GPRS virtual private network. In order to avoid communication losses due to power failure, the controllers are equipped with a back-up battery that provides extra reliability to the system.
     
    Real-Time Power Substations Monitoring System deployed
    In terms of software, ADVANTICSYS developed a tailored edition of the Concordia software platform with an interface suited to the needs of Georgian State Electrosystem, with a fast and secure data base with regular backups, a user-editable SCADA, automated generation of alarms and system events, access to historical data and multiple languages support, including kartuli, official language in Georgia. All integrated in their web server, avoiding the need to install any special software to view the data.
