An Unsustainable Energy Future
- Total World consumption of marketed energy will expand 48% – from 549 quadrillion Btu in 2012 to 815 quadrillion Btu in 2040.
- The world’s energy requirement is escalating to sustain life, growth and development.
- Fossil fuels continue to provide most of the world’s energy, It is 78% of total world energy consumption.
- But the natural resources of fossil fuels are finite.
- The worst hit by this double-edged sword is the Power Sector, a major sector for primary energy demand.
- Power is vital for development, yet prevailing methods of power generation are IRREVOCABLY affecting our ecosystem.
- The ‘Energy Demand Projections’ Vs ‘Environmental Impact’ conflict gives rise to these key concerns.
The Power Crisis
- Electricity is the world’s fastest-growing form of end-use energy consumption.
- Total World net electricity generation increases by 69% – from 21.6 trillion kWh in 2012 to 36.5 trillion kWh in 2040.
- Strongest growth in electricity generation from developing nations, primarily China and India.
- Yet the world lacks adequate and secure supplies of affordable electricity.
- 1 billion people worldwide still live without access to electricity, mostly in Asia & Africa.
- 5 billion rely on wood or other biomass for cooking and heating, resulting in indoor and outdoor air pollution that causes about 4.3 million deaths each year.
- Generating and consuming excessive amount of h electricity degrades the environment.
- Power loss occurs at all levels of production, transmission, distribution and consumption.
- At a macro level, as a result of disconnected islands of energy and peak load scenarios.
- It also occurs due to varied consumption based on type of users, temperatures, seasons and numerous other variables that result in peaks and troughs that are difficult to cater to.
- Power wastage also results from 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 inadequate power supply, higher bills, higher tariff and future energy security.
Traditional Power System
- Power systems use a network of heavy cables and transformers (the power grid) to transport and step-up/down the power from where it is generated to homes and businesses.
- Since electricity cannot be stored it has to be generated and distributed on demand.
- The power grid has actuators and sensors to measure and control:
- The flow of power
- The voltage of the power
- The transformers have various starting and protection systems
- These islands of information operate independently
- 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 Visualisation and Control to users
- The third part is Power System 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 of transformers & devices
- Configure rules for scheduling and alarms on If Then Else in conjunction with And/Or functionality
- Provides ready-to-use as well as customised reports
- Allows collaboration with legacy systems
Worgs empowers stakeholders to take control of their systems – Power Generation and Transmission Companies, Power Utilities, or for power management in townships, factories, residential and commercial setups.
