Functions

Monitoring

IS ENERGIS enables display of the stored data in a graphical interface, i.e. the actual measured values as well as archived values in different time levels from 1 minute to annual values. Using this graphical interface it is possible to create screens exactly according to user’s requirements, including an interactive run up of the other internal functions of the IS ENERGIS.

Trends

The IS ENERGIS enables to archive data for an unlimited period of time according to HW capacity of the central server. The WebGraf function serves for handling and displaying these data.

Load charts

This function enables monitoring of the consumption curves of electric power or gas. Fifteen-minute, hourly or daily load charts are available for demand, supply or combination of both. The function evaluates the current status of consumption, its forecast at the end of the interval and warns the user about possible exceeding of the contracted consumption limit, including recommendation of consumption reduction. IS ENERGIS also enables automated consumption control, so that the contracted consumption limit could not be exceeded.

Warnings

According to the data model setup parameters the system evaluates data completeness, exceeding of limit values, errors in data processing or failures of the individual parts of the system. These events are stored in data warehouse and subsequently made available for reports. For certain events the system requires an interactive acknowledgement of the user. Should the need arise, these events can be directed to different end equipment of the user, e.g. e-mail address or cell phone.

Targeting

IS ENERGIS enables input and adjustment of planned values from the level of an hour for all stored data points. Either internal functions of the IS ENERGIS or special SW modules connected to the data storage using web services are used to create a plan. Targeting function then allows comparing the actual values with the target, calculates the forecast and per the setup parameters warns the user about the possible variation from the standard condition. Outputs of this function are available in a table and graphical display.

Billing

This function fully covers the needs of a energy supplier in the billing area. It supports invoicing of all kinds of energy, evaluates variations from the contracted demands and capacity exceeding. For pricing the individual energy, the price lists that permit also setup of tariff and multi-component price are used. Outputs are usually directly linked with the accounting module of the financial informational system so any negative influence of a human factor during data transmission would be prevented.

Technical controlling

This function serves for an objective allocation of energy and raw material consumption to the individual cost centers, including financial statement. Pricing of the individual energies and raw materials is done using the inter-company price lists which enables setup of tariff and multiple-component price. Outputs are usually directly linked with the accounting module of the financial informational system so any negative influence of a human factor during data transmission would be prevented.

Energy intensiveness

This function enables monitoring and evaluation of energy intensiveness on all levels of the company structure (management, cost center, company, etc.). Using a regressive analysis it is possible to setup consumption standards and subsequently evaluate their fulfillment.

Distribution

This function fully covers the needs of a local distributor of electrical power. It secures collection of data from meters, analyses correctness of collected data, prepares the data for transmission to the market operator and communicates with the market operator.

Production balance

The data and functional models setup in IS ENERGIS directly support the balance and production evaluation processes. The user can use standard output reports divided per the given data point or per organizational division and time levels from 15 minutes up. Compiling of information into a standard output report and the implicit setup of appearance can be made by each user or these rights can be limited to the level of system administrator. Should the need arise, any types of the HTML format forms can be added to the system and display information in any time level, possibly in different time levels. Compiling of such forms requires only knowledge of a HTML generator (e.g. MS FrontPage) and an administrator tool IS ENERGIS. Also the current output reports in MS Excel or MS Word can be added into the IS ENERGIS.

Capacity utilisation

The IS ENERGIS allows monitoring of how the production equipment capacity is used. From 15 minutes time level the user has the possibility to monitor, whether the given facility is in operation, reasons for its down time, and mutually compare the given facilities.

Emissions

The IS ENERGIS enables processing and evaluation of all emission values according to the valid legislative on a daily and monthly levels. Necessary output forms can be setup from the user interface of the IS ENERGIS.
