The ENERBIRD EMS software solution is a two-level architecture:
A scheduling and optimisation module defines optimal production schedules based on predictive data (production forecasts, load forecasts, equipment availability schedule). These strategies are optimised with respect to revenues generated or updated cost of energy, as well as to equipment wear and tear.
A real-time control module applies the strategy defined by the scheduling module and reacts appropriately to unforeseen events.
Scheduling and optimisation module
It is based on the principle of predictive command using a model called Model Predictive Control (MPC). The MPC uses the model to predict behaviour of the system and to make the best decision in terms of a certain cost while taking restrictions into account.
The ENERBIRD EMS management system is integrated on-site via a robust and proven IS architecture of two industrial PCs with active redundancy. Implementation guarantees:
Reliability if internet connection is lost
Continuity of operation
The local energy management system interface is accessible on site or remotely to ensure optimal monitoring of system operation.
