AXULUS Solution Templates for Smart Grids IIOT as a Service – Have you ever wondered how to start with digitalization? Are you curious how to generate value add for your customers or in your daily operations based on the newest digital technologies? With AXULUS Solution Templates it is easy to identify and customize value-adding IoT solutions for your benefit. Start from a library of quantified Use Cases and Solution Templates to customize and build your own Digital Solution Intellectual Property (IP). We can deliver the solutions customized for you as fully managed service (Industrial IoT as a Service by AXULUS) or use the Solution Templates for your own implementation teams or partners to deliver them to you IP.
How to use IoT in smart grids
- Connected devices, appliances, hubs – The data on energy consumption coming from IoT devices is used to analyze electricity usage, cost, to control appliances remotely, identify malfunctions or any outage risk and make smarter decisions on load distribution.
- Real-time data analytics and visualization – The data collected from connected devices, as mentioned above, are then sorted and examined in order to provide real time information. Therefore, the transparency and visibility on the supply chain from energy production to energy consumptions increase. This allows operators to make more precise predictions and detect issues quicker.
- Advanced algorithms – Advanced Machine Learning algorithms process IoT data in order to identify trends and make the whole smart grid supply chain more efficient.
AXULUS USE CASE LIBRARY
Fraud, leaks and power losses detection
Electric Power Diversion detection based on real-time, continuous, and localized analysis of changes in electric current flows and voltage levels in the distribution network in order to distinguish legitimate metered loads versus those from theft.
Automated meter reading
IoT utility metering and submetering allow to monitor electricity usage remotely and reduce billing costs by eliminating manual meter readings and errors. Reduce consumer bills by giving them access to real-time energy usage data.
Grid equipment monitoring
Monitoring operating conditions in street cabinets for unauthorized openings and overheating detection, monitoring lightning impact on key network infrastructure by using connected surge arresters, copper cable drums theft detection using trackers.
Safety and System Integrity monitoring
Smart Gas IoT solution allow to visualize what’s happening inside gas pipelines (pressure changes, temperature, pipeline stress via strain gauges) to maintain safe delivery operations and meet regulatory requirements.
Methane sensing and gas leaks control
Smart methane sensors are used to shut off gas service when elevated levels of methane are detected, alleviating potentially dangerous situations before they arise, keeping utility personnel and customers safe.
Automated gas meter reading
Remotely measure gas flow rate through pipes and visualize gas consumption, with the ability to view usage trends. Reduce billing costs by eliminating manual meter readings and reading errors.
Water leakage detection
Reduce non-revenue water losses through quick detection of water leaks and instances of fraud, using connected sensors, and address leaks prior to them becoming costly main breaks.
Pressure and quality monitoring
Operate a continuous health monitoring of the water distribution system, with synchronized pressure, flow and quality measurements using connected IoT sensors.
Remote Valve Control
Remotely disconnect or limit water flow to an end customer using connected Smart Valves, using bidirectional, low-latency IoT connectivity.
