Energy monitoring and load management with PCS 7 Industry Library (Demo Project)

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
PCS 7 Industry Library allows the delivery of comprehensive functions for the monitoring and controlling of the energy consumption of a plant. With these functions you are able to meet an energy limit agreed with a power supply company.

Certain sectors of the industry have a requirement to adhere to agreed performance limits provided by power supply companies in a defined time window. The operation of a plant without consumption monitoring may even lead to penalties. For this reason (and others) the plant operator should have an efficient load management system that monitors fuel consumption and that engages in the process if necessary.

In the example project, a local load management system is used in a pumping station together with a sludge drying plant to meet a limit agreed with a power supply company. If the projection of the power consumption exceeds the agreed limit value, the consumers are switched off or run on generators.
The documentation contains basics of load management, a description of the project structure and instructions to start and control the application.
