Measure and monitor are two essential elements for proper operation of equipment in the entire facility.
Energy management system is a computer aided tool used by utility to keep check on performance. It can be used to centrally control devices like HVAC units, ventilation system, water pumping system, lighting system, steam regulation system etc. Energy management systems can also provide metering, sub metering, and monitoring functions that allow facility and building managers to gather data and insight that allows them to make more informed decisions about energy activities across their sites.
This system helps organization to achieve energy efficiency through well laid out procedures and methods, and to ensure continual improvement, which will spread awareness of energy efficiency throughout an entire organisation.
Shadow Energy proudly presents ENLOG –A monitoring system that combine multiple meters through a communication network to a central server or data acquisition system provide a comprehensive integrated solution to monitoring facility’s electrical energy use. These systems are becoming more affordable as more commercial products become available from manufacturers that focus on energy monitoring versus more complicated power quality monitoring systems. Virtual meters created within software also allow designers to automatically add and subtract hardware meter data. The lighting branch panel loads can be subtracted from the serving branch panelboard in order to separate the HVAC loads from the lighting loads. This minimizes the impact of metering on the electrical distribution design by eliminating the requirement that branch panelboard be fed individually from distribution panels.
Monitoring of your electrical system is quite essential on a regular basis. This helps you take necessary actions to:-
Tracking Energy Use Over Time
Reduce your Energy Consumption
Lower your Energy Bills
Operations & Troubleshooting Diagnosis
Effectively work for the improvement on your system performance
Motivates you to adopt recent technologies available in the market
Helps you keep your facility safe and sound
In order to analyze factory effectiveness and to drive equipment performance, extensive data is required from factory equipment. Data collected from the equipment can help predict capital equipment cost, consumables, labour and physical size of a manufacturing facility. The objective of Equipment Performance Management (EPM) is to keep and improve throughput, reliability, and turnaround time of production equipment and AMHS equipment. This document presents the user level requirements for the capabilities required to analyze and improve overall equipment performance for a semiconductor manufacturing plant.
