Local distribution network (LDN)
A comprehensive portfolio of products and solutions for efficient energy management and the governing of energy flows, e.g. compliance with designated capacities, and the monitoring of energy from supply quality to the comprehensive energy management system. The solution we offer customers includes:
- collection of business measurement data,
- preparation of billing data,
- the data’s transfer to the energy market operator (OTE),
- analysis of measured energy data information and connecting it to expert knowledge of measurement parameters and monitoring technologies.
The solution doesn’t merely offer the simple collection of data and its visualization; it is especially focused on identifying abnormal operating conditions, always in relation to energy consumed and the possibility of using it for subsequent operation (and thus cost) optimization.
Among other professional activities in high demand these days, services we’ve supplied include:
- external utilities engineers,
- processing of studies and concepts,
- engineering for construction solutions or local energy source renewal.
Metering Services Group offers customers a wide range of products and services, including expert know-how. Great emphasis is placed on providing support and service of solutions we’ve provided.
OFFER IN AREA
Remote meter reading system
An automated system of remote energy data readings using M2M networks (IoT) and the further processing of that data.
A customizable solution for the remote reading of meters of all energy types that integrates data transmissions via IoT and 2G/3G mobile networks.
The system can be provided as a variant of the complex MDMS system or only to the extent of data reading, designed with an emphasis on easy integration into the customer’s existing solution.
The MDMS module offers advanced tools for validation, automated processing of measured energy data and its long-term archiving for up to 10 years as determined by legislation. The solution meets legislative requirements including for auditability.
Scalable AMI solutions providing wide functionality for electricity, gas, water and heat utilities.
Data transfer to Market Operator
A solution used to transfer data between a central metering data management system (MDMS) and a market operator that organizes the energy market.
The concept and architecture of the system benefits from extensive experience in the development of systems designed for information exchange in the energy market. The solution is connected to other products which cover data collection from billing meters, processing of this data, and its archiving and transfer to other entities within the framework of the liberalized market. The demanding methodology of information exchange combined with legislative requirements call for increased activity on behalf of distribution and local distribution network administrators. The system can be a significant aid in the administration and management of energy data intended for transmission to the Market Operator.
Reducing energy consumption and seeking further savings. Reducing fixed payments for reserved energy. Return on investment tends to range from 6 months to 2 years.
Complete, customized energy management provision, from initial engineering and design, through the supply of measuring instruments, equipment for data collection and communication to a reading center, with visualization tailored to the customer.
An electricity (or natural gas) regulator is usually part of energy management, along with the measuring of electricity supply quality from the distribution network.
Communication infrastructure for data transmission can be part of the provision (optical network, structured cabling, wireless network) or the customer's existing infrastructure, or a combination of both.
The system comes with a standardized interface for data exchange with other information systems, most often production or economic systems.
A sophisticated system for energy management is an absolutely essential prerequisite for efficient energy management. The core of the solution is the analysis of measured data, whether it be individual measurements or partial and total balances. The system has tools for automated data control, especially for the immediate identification of abnormal or error conditions.
Monitoring and regulation of designated diagrams for electricity and natural gas
Adherence to the designated consumption diagrams without penalties and with minimal intervention in production processes.
The regulator of designated natural gas consumption (according to DRFC) has application in boiler rooms where the heat source is gas boilers alone or in combination with cogeneration. The main task of the controller is local or remote signaling to the operator and issuing of commands for a defined consumption reduction (directly or through the boiler room control system) in the event of an impending exceeding of designated diagram settings.
By optimizing the agreed DRFC, the cost of primary energy, i.e. natural gas, can significantly be reduced. All measures are designed with an emphasis on minimizing production interventions and maximizing savings.
The controller can operate either autonomously or as part of energy management.
Measurement and evaluation of electricity supply quality
Protects the customer from the effects of reduced electricity supply quality.
The quality of electricity supply is an important parameter, especially due to the increasing sensitivity of production technology.
There is a causal connection between the poor quality of energy supplied and production outages. Insufficient quality or reliability usually means large economic losses. The system we offer enables the collection and evaluation of data from electricity quality monitors and the assessment of whether the delivery took place in accordance with ČSN 50 160 and PPDS.
The solution includes, in part, the initial engineering for determining measurement sites, as well as delivery and installation of measuring instruments, including their set up.
The system is compatible with all commonly used instruments on the market and thus enables uniform data processing from measuring instruments of various manufacturers and types.
The service can be supplemented with regular expert service or ad-hoc data quality analysis and proposals for possible corrective measures.
Portal of measured data
An intelligent web portal designed for organizations, professionals, customers of energy companies from industrial fields, and municipalities who want to monitor and continuously analyze data regarding their energy consumption.
The portal receives automatically selected information from measurements of energy data collection systems (HES / MDMS). It’s a powerful visualization and analysis tool by means of which users can display measured data in various formats and analyze it in predefined and user-defined reports.
Multilevel calculations can be applied to the data, enabling advanced data processing using statistical functions. In combination with the tariffing functionality, the product enables full application of the data from smart metering’s information potential.
