Power management in production and process automation

(PresseBox) (Nuremberg, ) Siemens Industry Automation has added the function power management to the range of functions of its Simatic PCS 7 control system and Simatic WinCC visualization system for the production and process industry. The power management add-ons, called Simatic PCS 7 powerrate and Simatic WinCC powerrate, provide a uniform power management solution for all branches of industry. The user is thus able to locate savings potential, draw conclusions regarding the power behavior of different operating units and obtain information on the status of the plant and the degree of utilization. The individual functions such as measured value acquisition and processing, cost center management and load management are implemented by means of ready-made S7 modules, faceplates and Excel macros. The operator can therefore use his familiar system environment for comprehensive data management and visualization. The power management add-ons obtain the power values from switching, protection and measuring devices such as the Sentron PAC3200 multifunctional measuring instrument, which precisely measures the characteristic values and power values of loads in industrial and purpose-built buildings.
