We install sensors and smart devices, on the generator, that monitor various parameters such as – power generated, battery voltage, run hours, fuel level, etc. A gateway device then communicates these readings to our central server over the internet. The gateway works on GPRS, Wireless or Ethernet technology. You can then log onto the web application and view generator parameters, create reports – anywhere – and any time. Typical reports include generator status, fuel and maintenance reports etc.
Monitor key generator performance metrics like – total energy produced, energy produced per liter of fuel, power quality and RMS parameters. If performance falls, you can take timely actions to bring performance back to acceptable level.
Get information like hours run, battery voltages and temperature trends. You can use this information to schedule maintenance. This can reduce sudden downtime, overall maintenance cost and fuel consumption.
With the sustained rise of global energy prices, fuel costs are a major part of the total cost of ownership. Fuel cost could be as high as 60% of total cost of operations for a typical diesel generator running for about seven hours per day. This cost is driving many organizations to manage their generators more efficiently or consider other power system options. If you believe that, your generators are consuming more than required fuel. A possible reason could be fuel theft. You can easily identify fuel theft by comparing fuel consumption with actual power generation and fuel receipts.
