Automatic Transfer switch (ATS)

Automatic Transfer Switch : the what and the why?

Automatic Transfer Switch :  An ATS is a device that is designed to Automatically transfer between (2 or 3) sources of power to improve the reliability of the electrical supply to the connected load and to provide zero interruption of power. 

 It automatically switches when it senses one of the sources has lost or gained power.

Automatic Transfer Switch Not only transfers the load to the backup generator but also it commands  the backup generator to start and stop, based on the voltage monitored on the primary supply.

ATS installed in Industries, a  Industries is equipped with a backup generator and an ATS.

When an electric utility outage occurs, the ATS will tell the backup generator to start.

Once the ATS sees that the generator is ready to provide electric power, the ATS breaks the  connection from the electric utility and connects the generator to the same main electrical panel.

When a  utility power returns for a minimum time, the ATS will automatically transfer  back to utility power and command the generator to turn off.

Operation Areas of ATS 

1.Utility to Utility. 

2.Generator to  Generator.

3.Utility to Generator.

4.Standby power system to two utility feeds.  Etc.

Utility to Utility

Dual utility applications are becoming more common , in facilities with  zero interruption of power, but no standby generator. If one utility feed fails, the transfer switch automatically connects the load to the second utility feed.

Generator to  Generator

(using multiple on-site generators)If the primary generator fails, the transfer switch sends a start signal to the second generator and then transfers the load.

Utility to Generator

If the supply from  Utility fails/ interrupted ,the transfer switch will send a start signal to the generator automatically and connect the generator supply to load.

PrePaid Energy Meters

LoRa based PrePaid Energy Meters: Shaping the future of Utility Management

 

Technology can only be utilized and most importantly, revolutionized. When you are in the utility sector, it is the responsibility of each and everybody serving to provide ‘Vikaas’. In common words, Vikaas translates to development and it can be anything. For the time being, let’s consider a power cut. Power cuts annoy everybody. People start blaming the government, the discoms and each and everyone except themselves. But what if the mistake is on your side? What if you haven’t paid your bills ? What if, you pay and use electricity? Something similar to a prepaid sim?

For complete strangers to this technology, “the standard business model of electricity retailing involves the electricity company billing the customer for the amount of energy used in the previous month or quarter. In some countries, if the retailer believes that the customer may not pay the bill, a prepayment meter may be installed. This requires the customer to make an advance payment before electricity can be used” is how Wikipedia describes it. 

 

Pay As You Go

For those living under the rocks, this concept of prepaid electricity metering isn’t new. Landlords in the UK have used prepaid electricity meters for rented accommodation. The South African company Eskom started using prepayment system under their ‘Electricity For All’ scheme which was highly successful. Even the Indian government has decided to replace all the existing meters with smart prepaid ones. Karnataka, Maharashtra and Delhi have all started replacing the meters and Uttar Pradesh has also followed suit. Now talk about Vikaas !

The discoms are facing a host of problems. Payment dues, power theft are just the tip of the iceberg. The government has settled upon that prepayment electricity could  be the answer. And, they might have actually hit the bulls eye. There might not be a significant decrease in operating cost , but it will be a considerable one. And, not to mention the profit discoms might start making with people actually paying for what they use.  Meters will be able to measure most of the data like voltage, frequency and also display the balance left. By using smart meters, users will be able to monitor parameters by connecting it to the meters. But , how is the connection between the user and device achieved is the next big question that needs to be answered.   

The Liaison

Most of the smart meters use various connectivity methods such as  cellular communication, WiFi, ethernet,Zigbee, but LPWAN is proving to be the one to watch out for. With several advantages such as lower power consumption,longer range, low operating cost, lesser number of gateways required and free radio spectrum, LPWAN can do what bluetooth(longer range) and cellular(low power) could not achieve. 

LPWAN was created for IOT based M2M applications . It transmits data in packets to avoid packet loss, thus increasing efficiency. A wide variety of applications such as metering, location monitoring, home automation, fleet monitoring, traffic management can use this method.

With a handful of vendors offering this technology, Sigfox and LoRa are the pioneers. Sigfox uses a well-known modulation technique, but transmits slowly in a very narrow band of spectrum to maximize signal penetration. LoRa radios use a modulation technique that can find signals well below the noise floor. Having developed their own signal processing methods, LoRa has been able to achieve even longer ranges, significantly better than the standard 10 km range in comparison to other vendors. With its free to use operation and ‘build-your-network’ method of operating, LoRa has taken the lead in the race. Within the sub-GHz spectrum, LoRa chips use a spread-spectrum strategy to transmit at a variety of frequencies and data rates. That allows the gateway to adapt to changing conditions and optimize the way it exchanges data with each device.

Metering Gets Smarter with LoRa

When electricity meters are used with LoRa, metering tends to be smarter. Each meter shall have a seperate QR code and can be scanned by the user and can be quickly installed. A single gateway can connect upto 256 energy meters ( to one gateway with programmable data log interval, meters can be scaled up to 1000) and data is transmitted from the meters to the central server through this gateway. Important data can be sent , so less operating cost and losses occur. Places where source changovers are used, a wireless communication module is used to send the data to the user as well as the server where all the data is stored. Using a mobile app, the meter data can be monitored by the user.

Key Features of LoRa based Elmeasure Prepaid Meter

Long Range 

Connects devices up to 1 Km  apart in rural areas and penetrates  dense urban or deep indoor environments

Low Cost

Reduces infrastructure investment, and ultimately operating expenses

Secure

Features end-to-end encryption, mutual authentication, integrity protection, and confidentiality

High Reliability

Designed to operate across a wide temperature range in unforgiving environments, these devices are ideal for Aerospace, Industrial and Military applications.

LoRa enabled prepayment meters can be used in residential complexes where energy supply and source can be controlled and data of each household can be monitored. Since their operation does not rely upon network providers, it can be accessed anytime of the day. In case of commercial establishments, energy can be monitored such that the load is operated in an efficient manner. With increase in power theft, payment dues and meter manipulation, these set of meters stand a great chance in reducing utility losses coupled with its large communication range. The app can also be used  to recharge the account. 

With a smattering of manufacturers coupling LoRa with prepaid energy measurement, companies like Elmeasure India Pvt Ltd. are setting standards in the energy sector. It’s only a matter of time before we hear their success stories !

Why do residents/builders install ACCL (Automatic Changeover with Current limiter)?

Instability of power, fluctuation, and failure in the supply of electricity is a major challenge in several developing countries. Setbacks arising from incessant power failures are still a major concern even in the era of the industrial revolution 4.0.

The need for alternative power supply had become imperative and generators were used for assistance during power outages to supply load in residential and commercial buildings. However, this comes with the challenges associated with the manual changeover between sources. Thus, builders and residents came up with the solution by installing Automatic Changeover with Current Limiter to eliminate the need for manual or human intervention for switching to an available source of power.

What is ACCL?

The ACCL is a device designed to provide automatic switching of power supply between utility supply and generator. In general, there are two types of changeover switches that are used to transfer the sources namely, manual and electronic changeover. 

Manual changeover switches comprising switch gear box and cutout fuse or the connector fuse are popularly used to transfer load between two sources. This comes with a limitation that the electrician or a maintenance supervisor needs to manually switch the contacts from mains terminal to generator terminal and vice versa during an outage. This could lead to damage to equipment resulting from overloading at a changeover, and the ceramic insulator could crack during the process of transfer leading to electric shock.

Automatic changeover is found to eliminate the delay associated with manual operation and transfers back to the primary source (to utility) spontaneously when the power is restored. Also, ACCL is inbuilt with step loading feature which would help in protecting the generator coils and increase the lifespan of generators reducing the downtime.

The ACCL manufactured by Elmeasure ACCL standouts with its ability to set parameters on site such as a programmable number of tripping cycles, current, overvoltage and under voltage protection and comes with additional features such as :

  • Control your ACCL remotely using Mobile APP
  • Reset your ACCL using your MCCB from your residence without depending on an electrician and extra cost
  • On-Site current programmability based on loads for both mains and generator
  • Load protection from over-voltage and under-voltage
  • Sequential time-delayed switching to avoid sudden overloading of the generator
  • Field configurable overcurrent setting and tripping for mains supply and generator.
  • Inbuilt display and measurement of I, V, F and Kwh on the generator side and mains side for iACCL M600
  • Single phase ACCL is built with separate control for power and lighting load to reduce wiring cost

How does it help the residents?

  • The automatic change over switch minimizes damages to lives/equipment since it has its own monitoring system and its switching requires no human contact with the switch.
  • An ACCL could also reduce the maintenance cost of a generator as it provides the feasibility to program delay of transfer between utility and generator to avoid overloading.
  • It provides seamless transfer to maintain a high quality of service to complement the main power supply and provide the uninterrupted power supply.
  • Monitor regularly generator and utility consumption to avoid tenant issues
  • In case the tenant delays the payment towards DG consumption bill, the relay can be programmed on site to cut the service to the particular flat and restore on payment

 

Where can we use ACCL ?

  • Apartments and Villas
  • Commercial centers
  • Airports & Railways
  • Banking & Finance
  • Infrastructure & Telecommunications.

India over to Prepaid Meters - Elmeasure

Why India is moving towards Prepaid Meters?

{:en}

Electricity is always a hot topic & you can always witness shocking results if you are looking at the data of India. Now, It is accompanied by other 2 major utilities, gas & water as well.

Especially now, India is in the extreme water-scarce situation & also there is no point in discussing the demand vs supply ratio of both electricity & gas, which are based on non-renewable natural resources.

In such an uninvited (probably) conditions, how do the government manage a country with 1.3 billion people?

It is a difficult situation both to control the needs & also to satisfy. This also leads to various malpractices within the industry like quality, tampering, theft, etc. that ultimately damages the economy and breaks the trust between government & people.

Until then, there is this smart innovation came into the picture that exactly needed for a country & situation like this. The government is also made a smart move towards making it mandatory, that is when India over to #PrepaidMeter.

What is a Prepaid Meter?

The energy meter that allows customers to pay for utilities in advance is a prepaid meter. Similar to our prepaid sim card used in mobile phones where the customer can call until the amount is used after which the connection is unavailable.

ISI approved Prepaid Meters
Elmeasure’s ISI accredited Prepaid Meters

Prepayment or prepaid meter is a single device that can be used for integrated monitoring of electricity, gas & water consumption. The prepaid meter allows you to pay in advance for electricity to be on the safer side and ensures you don’t have to pay penalty & spend the dark nights.

How are things till date with utilities?

In the past, consumers had no option to view the real-time data of how much electricity has been used & had no control over the budgeting. While, the prepaid meters enables the customer to budget their consumption in advance, detect theft /tampering and payment of energy bills, preventing tenant disputes, further eliminate manual errors while taking energy meter readings.

The challenges generally observed in the conventional metering system were higher tenant dispute & longer payment period, unavailability of alarm on failure, historical data, real-time reporting, accuracy, aggregated meter location, inability to make forecast & control meter remotely also it was found that longer wiring leads to transmission losses.

Prepaid Meters within your reach: Highly integrable, configurable, and a versatile solution.

Prepaid is a plan that deducts usage charges and any fixed charges from account balance each day. These prepayment meters have given the customer the control to budget electricity expenses & monitor usage anytime, protect equipment against overload/over voltage, notifications and alerts via SMS/ Email when recharge balance is low, to keep records of recharge & consumption history for easy support & follow-ups & much more available on our fingertips using the mobile app.

Energy Saving to kill hunger - Elmeasure

For every 2 Units of Electricity Saved, A man (Or) [A Woman + A Kid] can be fed a whole day.

I call this a hypothesis because it is just the dogma of an individual after seeing the problems and correlating with some other equivalent theory and the industry his company works for, to compliment in their own style.

This is a hypothesis, which can cause chaos if it’s considered just as another theory…So, we still have the chance to be not included in /concluded as THE NEXT CHAPTER IN CHAOS THEORY!

This is all about energy and its consumption. As we discuss its usage we speak a lot about its wastage too, which has the major role!

THE SUSPICIOUS STORY

Energy is being transformed from one state to other, the energy which is not utilized or energy utilized more than required is, and also the unrecognized/unknown transformed state of energy is considered Energy wasted.

In chaos theory, “The Butterfly Effect” is the sensitive dependence on initial conditions in which a small change in one state of a deterministic nonlinear system can result in large differences in a later state.

In more apt to the situation, it can be rewritten as simple as,

Your small & simple unnoticed actions here are the reason for huge reactions/chaos somewhere else later.

The butterfly has a very major role in creating natural calamities like tornados, cyclones, hurricanes because of their wing flap which cause a small pressure gap in the surrounding air molecules here, that create a huge damage somewhere later.

“Human Beings are as beautiful & innocent as Butterflies, but not as dumb”.Butterflies don’t know what they are causing, but being the most intelligent species on the earth, I believe our cognition system is far better than theirs. So we can understand how and what damage we are creating, at least we can share it if someone doesn’t know!

Advertisement

This is the stimulus for writing this to all human beings over there, The Energy we wasted here, is somewhere affecting the lives of other people in a very painful way! The name “The human effect” is coined after finding the similarities in the concept of “the Butterfly effect”!

So let me tell you, how much damage we are causing to the whole economy of our country & how injustice we are to the poor without our notice. Allow me to use a situation of a middle class family in India.

THE MATHEMATICAL MYSTERY

A (1) Fan that consumes 100 watts when runs for 24 hrs. a day, the electric power would be Approximately 72 UNITS/MONTH (Average Data)

(Let’s make it equal for one day on both sides. i.e., fan rotated for the whole day & the units spent for 1 day)

1*100*24 (Watt Hr) = 72 units/month = 72 /30 (Avg. days of a month)

= 2.4 units /day

                                      2400 watt hr = 2.4 units

                                                1 UNIT = 1000 WATT Hr ……. (1)

                                                [This is how Electricity is measured, Isn’t it?]

The energy transforms into different forms. So, why not we convert its equivalent amount to what is required for the survival of human beings. This is where the hypothesis has started. (i.e., kilowatt-hour into Calories)

1 WATT Hr = 3600 Joules……. (2)

                                                   But, 4.184 k Joules = 1 Large Cal

                                  so,  1 Joule = 1/4184 = 0.000239 Large Calories ……. (3)

                              Now, From (2) & (3)

                                    1 WATT Hr. = (3600* 0.000239) Large Calories

                                     1 Watt Hr = 0.86042065 Large Calories ……. (4)

                                and, From (1) & (4)

1 UNIT = 1 Kilo Watt Hour = 1000 * 0.86042065 Large Calories.

1 UNIT ~ 860.402 Large Calories

So, 1 unit of electricity is equivalent to 860.402 large calories

Advertisement
A LITTLE HISTORY:

Harvard Health Publications suggests, The SAFE INTAKE for women is at least 1,200 calories daily and men get a minimum of 1,500 calories a day.

1 Unit of Energy = 860.402/1200 = 0.717 FEMALE ADULTS

                       = 860.402 / 1500 = 0.573 MALE ADULTS

2 UNITS of ELECTRICITY can Serve ~ [1 WOMAN & 1 kid] (or)1 MAN for a day.

United State’s Energy.Gov (http://www.energy.gov/) says, “This (Electricity) is just 34% of the all forms of energy (including electricity, gas, and fuel) what we use daily and you can save about 30% on your energy bill while reducing environmental emissions”. (http://energy.gov/energysaver/tips-heating-and-cooling)

The following table gives the wattage and daily usage time of typical household appliances owned by a middle-class family in India on an AVERAGE (Credits: http://achahome.com/)

Total consumption Per day = 7 units.

Total consumption Per month = 30* 7 = 210 units.

If we can be able to save 30% of it, which for each house can be estimated as = 30*210/100 = 63 UNITS

This can at least serve 45 WOMEN (or) 36 MEN (or) 100 children per month.

Annually, each house hold can save a lot of energy equivalent to serve up to 500 people. In case if it is a factory /industry/shopping mall, the number is bigger.

If the wastage could not be stopped, someone has to sacrifice their life. It was Nature previously which is abundant, but mankind is not kind enough to save nature for future, so the sacrifice has to be made by mankind ultimately! NATURE HAS NO FUTURE! If at all, it has to be called “Artificial Nature” may be!

There is the rising demand for energy on one side and diminishing natural resources on the other, which will now lead to intolerance of Nature.

BIG FAT COMPLEMENTARY:

The complementary & important information is, the extra fat/cholesterol accumulated in our body is a form of energy and that was snatched from other’s food. Exercise to let go of the energy being stuck wasted in you! This will keep you healthy too!

This is just wastage of Electricity as a form of energy, if we relate the wastage of Gas, petroleum, water, etc. as the forms of energy too, the guilt will kill us.

I find this is the way to explain a common man too. Every time you waste energy, someone is dying of hunger & you are the murderer. Next, it may be you, one of your family member, your friend or other human beings.

So, is it just a murder? Isn’t that suicide???

AND, THE COMPULSORY:

New York’s (REV) Reforming the Energy Vision is too far from. India’s Energy vision is still at “understanding the importance of Energy”. Long way to go …

But, that doesn’t mean we are technically backward class. We only have a section of people who are economically backward! The only problem is the information and communication about the state-of-art technologies being developed in India to control and manage energies at homes, shopping malls, factories, industries, apartments, etc.

#DigitalTransformation FOR INDIAN ELECTION SYSTEM & THE FUTURE OF GOVERNANCE – A HYPOTHESIS

My previous article was about how to effectively choose an energy management system? Since the hype is on Indian elections, why can we not correlate the same for how to effectively achieve good governance using technology, #DigitalTransformation?

Note: This is just a hypothesis that might be a possibility with ever growing technology, data & the evolving ways of easy processing.

Energy is central to nearly every major challenge & opportunity the world faces today so does an opportunity to choose a leader to you.

This is an opportunity that might be central to every major challenge or opportunity you face tomorrow but the emotions towards caste, influence is mundane to get replaced quickly. Science may help, Technology may be the witness to put one’s thoughts & mind forward for the well being of the human race. Either saving our country for future generations or saving the future of the country for generations, We are in the front line. The prior was our job, what we are absolutely good at maybe only in the energy space but that decides the future of a country, but the latter is something where we wanted to be a helping hand.

Before going digital, Dear people, please cast your vote because, #ApnaTimeAagaya

So, Digital Transformation for Elections & Future of Governance can be addressed for 3 categories. 

Leaders:

It is the primary concept where elections fail, people go emotional in choosing a leader after all the humans right! But, the true sense of a political leader is always in disguise but not if digital trends like AI, Sensitivity analysis & Blockchain technology comes into the picture.

Digital Transformation-Election-Leaders

Technologies like these can record minute financial details & provide a clean chit for a political leader who can be in the race. Sensitivity analysis can help predict future behaviors based on the previous & AI, Machine Learning can help the leader by personalizing people experiences.

Voting:
election day ballot box

The process of voting can be made very transparent & effective with the technologies that we have now, needless to say, the Aadhar system had every individual’s security data (like fingerprints, address, mobile, etc.) & the voting system can be so secure & effective using biometric systems using retina, thumb impression, etc.

People & Governance:

Nearly 1.4 billion population & slow pace of #DigitaTransformation makes our governance the weakest in the whole world, but may not be anymore if all the above-mentioned technologies are in place making the #DigitalTransfusion into the whole country through every house/street by means of “Local Governance”.

Digital Transformation-Election-Governance
  • Financial Matters like money, gold, properties are taken care of by Blockchain at it’s best.
  • Criminal Matters are taken care of by Sensitivity analysis & behavioral analytics using Big Data & Robotics.
  • The Agricultural, Industrial & Infrastructure can have co-aligned growth through technologies like IoT, Additive Manufacturing, Smart cities, EV, cloud technologies, etc.
  • Flawless governance is achievable with technologies like AI & machine learning, etc. to integrate all together.

Keeping aside the theory, Every change has it’s limitations & problems before stepping in. You all know the difficulties to implement these still-evolving technologies, but may not be impossible within 10-15 years. Let’s hope for the best.

Meanwhile, I would love to hear your thoughts on how #DigitalTransformation can help us achieve good governance in the comments below.

Digital Transformation by Elmeasure

Digital Transfusion – An Energy Industry Perspective of Digital Transformation.

The digital world is the living world & the rest are just spectators. So, this statement gives birth to these 2 questions of all time, that makes Digital Transformation is not the luxury but necessary.

Are you Digital Ready? / Are you Digitally Ready?

Digital Transformation in many areas like Data, Analytics, Technology, Revenue, even strategy, etc… is accused of being merciless & collapse many fat-cat corporates within no time.

It is not a specific industry but, even the technological industries had their own versions of excuses for not preferring change & the following basic reasons has to be addressed for being on top.

  • No Information / Don’t see it coming
  • No idea of where to start & How it ends
  • Budget, Resources, & etc.



Digital Transformation is a process where the way an organization operates, measure & perform gets effective with less hassle in terms of measurement, monitoring & control.

So, In context to #DigitalTransformation in the shoes of Energy industry, We have 3 concepts to hit on.

1. Digital Transfusion but not Digital Transformation

In medical terms, Transfusion happens in order to change the old blood with a fresh one that suits. Electricity is one such bloodline that flows through the entire organization & any type of organization that demands primary attention. But, is it possible for Digital Transformation of the company particularly in Energy & power?

Yes, Which why we call it Digital Transfusion & this is how we help organizations to achieve the Digital Transformation.

2. Where to begin, especially when you have limited resources.

Basic digital transformation should start with a scope to cover the whole organization via energy & power resources that cover at least 40% of your annual expenses. These can be monitored, measured & controlled using a system that can recognize enormous energy-saving prospects, help optimize operations and track return on assets (ROA) to a great extent in manufacturing, industrial machinery, power & utilities, mining, oil & gas industries.

Adopting energy management software to provide flexibility, mobility and data access to help enterprises focus on their core business in addition to environmental sustainability.

#JustSaying Few Energy management systems (#ELNet) have recorded a whooping RoI of <6 months & reducing expenses by ~15% annually.

3. Where is this headed ultimately?

This can take us to the next level where organizations can personalize employee experiences, which is the future of work.

The capabilities of digital transition are the inclusion of real-time monitoring, and cloud services to ease the workflows, predict trends & behavior patterns offer plans in decision-making.

The rapid growth in technology towards digitalization allows the industry to take complete advantage in analyzing the overall energy usage, real-time processing of the acquired data, and tailoring the insights as per user needs. Energy management is leading the world’s energy efficiency with the rise of Interoperability (A concept that enlights the Internet of Things – IoT) even in the industry 4.0.

Let’s continue the talk in the stall: H12. D45 (D4511) at #HannoverMesse.

THE INTEROPERABLE SYSTEMS IN TEXTILE INDUSTRY – THE ROLE OF IoT.

Indian Textile Industry hits the 5th Millennium: The archaeological surveys and studies have found that the people of Harrapan civilization knew to weave, and the spinning of cotton four thousand years ago. Apart from the Bronze age civilization, There was a proof for textile trade in India during the early centuries, A block printed and resist-dyed fabric, whose origin is from Gujarat was found in the tombs of Fostat, Egypt.

Needless to say that, we are very old in the business, but then it was very much less compared to now. The textile industry is now is not just manufacturing of yarn, fabrics, and textiles for clothing, carpets but, further classified based on distinct sections such as research, design, manufacture, and distribution.

What is the Indian Textile Industry weaving now?

Name anything in the Textile industry, Either India was already there or India was the only one there. The oldest sector & the greatest contributor to our economy has set benchmarks in various ways.

The growth of the Textile industry looks promising with the increase in market demand worldwide for textile products. Sneak into the facts & figures to understand what is weaving in the Indian Textile Industry now.

textile facts & figures in India

Although the industry is well poised to grow at an annual rate of 15% but going ahead will be tough unless the industry acquires technological know-how related to ” From Connecting Each Module to Automating the Whole Process”.

The Risks!

Besides the inferior technology, the industry has been persistently facing various external issues which need immediate attention. Major issues are:

  • Skill gaps and the shortage of skilled manpower as the process is yet to be automated
  • Very high-interest rates
  • Lack of sustained demand from the user sector
  • Import of second-hand machinery whose life cycle is less & the average energy consumption/cost is more.
  • The Process which has to be measured, monitored & controlled for avoiding unnecessary variable costs & eventually gaining more profits.
  • The knowledge for the owners to Invest in the technology.
Is the Fashion Industry still running Old-fashioned?

The process involved in the textile industry is found to be highly complex with the beginning of research, design, development to finished products. These processes are performed using a wide range of machines such as spinning, weaving, dyeing, printing, finishing and manufacturing fabrics.

the basic process modules of a textile factory

It is completely process-based where each & every stage has the power that will lead to a large impact on productivity and profitability during any obstructions. We need keen monitoring at every stage in complex processes such as textile that demands an Integrated system to measure the precise details of each machine.

An interoperable platform for Textile Factories?

The textile industry is found to be the leading sector that needs immediate digitalization as it is dependent on precise details of equipment functioning, management of dyes, and monitoring of raw materials. Further, it is necessary to consider the deviations occurring in the industry from Standard Operating Conditions to minimize the revenue losses. This suggests the need to effectively utilize technology in the textile industry either it is IIoT based products or the IoT solutions.

An Energy & Process Management System at 50001:2011 standards:

Interoperability is the concept evolved by the way Internet of Things (IoT) based solutions works, which is generally defined as a network of physical objects with internet connectivity for the communication between the devices and the system.

The optimum productivity is achieved only when the system is process oriented & the process is automated!

Process controlling

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is found to be a gateway between the computing technologies, cloud, mobile machine learning, and industrial infrastructure to help industries elevate their productivity and efficiency. IIoT solutions is a world of the monotonous throng with networks, sensors, operating equipment and devices in comparison to smart home appliances. The information collected from the devices will be used to analyze, monitor, maintain high performance and efficiency in industrial applications such as production and maintenance.

Further, data collected can be directly uploaded to a cloud server using products like EPC through various communication protocols.

It is necessary to utilize process management systems in textile industries to monitor and receive real-time data for the effective decision-making process.

These solutions can help in preventive maintenance to reduce the overall energy consumption and to provide a sustainable environment.

Enhance Life & Economy through Textile industry:

In several textile industries, sensors were placed in washers, dryers, and other equipment to improvise their performance by attaining real-time data, in addition to detecting the failure of equipment thereby reducing the downtime.

  • Specific energy consumption of heavy loads: Calculation of section-wise energy consumption against product output
  • Performance check and periodic maintenance: Verification of equipment data with respect to rated specs
  • Monitoring of cyclic operation of spinning unit (Ring frame): Number of Stoppages with duration during doffing; Energy comparison of various ring frames bis-à-vis product outputs (Ring UKG); Different Yarns count and specific energy consumption (UKG) per Ring frame
  • Identifying the idle running of the machine.

There are multiple Case studies on Pacific Textiles, Getzner Textile, Everest Textile industry indicates the need for their rapid transformation towards the digital revolution to improvise their operations & productivity.

Frequent challenges observed in incorporating IoT in the textile industry:

Recent studies on IIoT indicates a rapid growth towards automating textile industry from the initial stages of development to production, storage, and marketing to improve the time to market (TTM). However, the practical implementation of IoT in the industry will undergo various challenges while redefining the textile industry as listed below:

  • IoT being a network of physical objects, it is necessary to ensure appropriate connectivity of weaving machines with huge bandwidth through Ethernet.
  • A large amount of structured/unstructured data will be available on the integration of IoT and it is necessary to manage these voluminous data.
  • Suitable IoT management platforms that are compatible with ERP, administrative and management systems are required.
  • Data integrity and confidentiality of the data transferred needs to be considered with the integration of IoT platforms.

HOW TO CHOOSE AN ENERGY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM?

Energy is the biggest resource every country can count on for their seamless future. When the future is determined based on your ability to manage energy resources, how sure are you to get an adequate amount of electricity is the question to answer. When saving is not on the bucket list, it comes to the traditional way of any developing country’s life, rich get more access & poor get limited access.

“Energy is central to nearly every major challenge & opportunity the world faces today.”

Affordable & clean energy is one of the 17 goals to transform the world called ‘sustainable development goals’ by UNO. They believe that the world revolves around energy to evolve the new phases of development.

It is one of the requisites for the sustained growth of an individual, organization, factory, state or even nation.

So, the necessity of energy & its management is like a fingerprint that can’t be the same for everyone. Even 2 similar plants might need different areas of energy saving. So, we don’t have something called ready-made EMS available. Though some made it available online, it actually does show you a picture of whole bills but no predictions or suggestions to your RoI, Savings.

In short, If a system can’t save your manpower, money & resources that are as good as doing nothing.

So, how do you choose an EMS that actually works for you?

What is an EMS?

Energy Management System is a platform that helps Residential complexes, manufacturing plants, commercial buildings to define & suggest what all the possible areas to save energy.

“Measuring your energy usage and cost is the first step to properly managing energy”

Energy is not an expenditure; it is an asset where the monitored & controlled utilization can bring a lot of saving.

What exactly an EMS offers?

  • Improve strategic energy management capabilities.
  • Build the case to leadership on the value of energy management and gain additional support.
  • Improve control and transparency of energy costs and budgets.
  • Improve operational efficiency.
  • Facilitate demand response and energy purchasing.

What do you need to do?

There are various elements involved in taking the decision to finalize an EMS, from installation to reports until predictive analysis of the energy & process parameters, the requirement varies from organization to organization. In such cases, there should be few parameters to recognize the feasibility of the system with your organization like,

1. Multiple communication possibilities:

The Software you use should be capable to accept the ocean of changes & ready to mingle with any other third-party devices. Keeping aside the compatibility of a system, It should allow the change management that we consider mandatory even for the systems, would definitely save us a fortune. It should be able to get along with any type of communication protocols which is only possible with an interoperable platform with the capability of accepting any kind of devices.

2. Technology & Customization:

Technology is far most important any other aspects, it seems you are working very hard but, you are still not growing. Just like Nokia, we fail & still, we didn’t know the reason. It decides your epitome of growth.

The better the technology the better the results in the industry. It is very important to check with the technology & the platform it is built on. It is well-versed that the need for EMS varies for every business, of course, every sector. It is thus very important to customize the solution that solves your pain points, & leave the rest unless given for free of cost.

Technology that can’t be customized for you is not the right one for you.

3. Future Proof:

An organization is a living object. Every invention & investment in the organization should be made sure to be compatible with future changes either in terms of technology or the people. An organization can be successful when it is process oriented & the platforms you use to make it happen are future proof.

The software once designed for your organization should be made sure that the same software can be upgraded with multiple aspects of technological advancements like compatibility with other party vendors, possible vertical integration, easy technological upgrade, etc. It should be made future-proof to fit the organization at any time.

4. Data Safety, Security & Analysis:

Data is a very important asset for every organization now & the vulnerability of data leads to unprecedented consequences as it mainly depicts the privacy of an individual, an organization, etc. If your data is compromised your competitor is as good as you or may be better than you because Data has a better idea than you do.

The output of every invention is based on the ease of data accessing along with its safety & security. Technologies like Blockchain may be advanced, but many countries are still in dilemma whether to imbibe it due to its data decentralization. It is not applicable for every Industry, also not everyone in the industry that is applicable may not be happy with low secure technologies but, This kind of technologies will be the essential part of the industry in the coming years if the safety & security is taken care of.

5. Return on Investment (RoI):

People should consider spending on systems in saving Energy as an investment but not as the expenditure. For people who consider it as the investment here is what you need to consider, The RoI (Return on Investment). Less the payback period, better the solution you have invested on & early start saving the energy resources.

Apart from these major requisites, there are few secondary factors to look at before choosing, else the Other Requisites can be:

Return on investment data

6. Affordability:

There are 100s of players in the market who has software that named as Energy Management System, just create an account, purchase the online software even at 10000 bucks, Which is where people got confused with the word “affordability” of a system. Affordability is actually the price-product-premises fit which self-defines as the price you pay is worth the product features, aesthetics, & technology that should help solve the pain of your enterprise.

Being in the Energy sector for one & half decade, we have read about different customer needs, consumed a lot of data & spoke with multiple domain experts & designed software that works towards your future.
