The Power Problem
- The world’s energy requirements are escalating with 78% of total world consumption depending on fast depleting fossil fuel resources.
- The worst hit by this double-edged sword is the Power Sector, a major sector for primary energy demand.
- Power is vital for growth and development, yet existing methods of power generation are unsustainable and emit harmful gases into the environment.
- Electricity is the world’s fastest-growing form of end-use energy consumption.
- Total World net electricity generation is poised to grow by 69% – from 21.6 trillion kWh in 2012 to 36.5 trillion kWh in 2040.
- Maximum growth in electricity generation is from developing nations, primarily China and India.
A Strategic Step to the Smart Grid
- Power loss occurs at all levels of production, transmission, distribution and consumption.
- Since power cannot be stored, at macro levels it occurs due to disconnected islands of energy and peak load scenarios.
- Varied consumption based on type of users, temperatures, seasons and numerous other variables also result in loss, as peaks and troughs are difficult to cater to.
- Power wastage also happens as a result of negligence, convenience or simply a lack of manpower resources, for e.g. machines and equipment idling, lights that remain burning in broad daylight.
- All this waste directly impacts power supply, higher bills, higher tariff and future energy security.
Traditional Metering Systems
- The power utilities have actuators and transformers to measure and control:
- The flow of power
- The voltage of the power
- They use conventional methods of recording meter data that is slow, unreliable, inefficient and prone to human error.
- These islands of information operate independently.
- Unmetered connections make it impossible to determine actual electricity consumption and commercial losses due to metering problems, theft, etc.
- There is virtually no systematic collection, analysis and distribution of data and solutions.
Worgs Power Solution
- A complete hardware and software solution that can be implemented with ease.
- Reduces the software implementation time and cost.
- It comprises three parts
- The first part is a field device – a box that consolidates components for Electrical Starting, Protection, Automation, Sensor and Actuator integration.
- It provides a plug and play interface for sensors and actuators.
- The second is a cloud based software application which allows seamless communication with the field device.
- It also provides Web based Visualization and Control to users.
- The third part is Power Utility Owners and Operators, who can connect their transformers to Worgs and take advantage of the functionality of this robust system, some of which are
- Gather real time data from consumer meters, be they residential, commercial or industrial
- Configure rules for scheduling and alarms on ‘f Then Else in conjunction with And/Or functionality
- Provide ready-to-use as well as customized reports
- Allows collaboration with legacy systems
- Enable better customer care, save time and resources in resolving customers’ complaints.
- Worgs modular architecture allows diverse software applications to interact with each other.
Worgs empowers stakeholders to take control of their systems – Power Utilities, Power Managers in Townships, Factories and Commercial setups.
