The centralised chiller plant of a building accounts for roughly half of all energy consumed by a building. Therefore, operating the chiller plant in the most energy-efficient manner help to optimise building energy utilisation considerably.
However, managing data streams from multiple sites, each consisting of a large pool of sensors can be complex due to differences in units of measure, sampling resolution, on/off cycle, interrupting in data streams, and even inconsistent naming convention. For meaningful analytics and insights, data streams need to be harmonised and standardised.
The technology relates to a data analytics platform that connects to live data stream from IoT sensors at the chiller plants, stream data through uniform data ingestion and cleansing data with data preparation tool and extract, transform and load (ETL) processes. Data is then standardised and normalised onto a data visualisation platform for analysis.
The technology provider is seeking partners to collaborate through various modes including joint-research, sub-licensing, Platform-as-a-Service and/or other commercial arrangements.
TECHNOLOGY FEATURES & SPECIFICATIONS
The platform comes with specialised chiller plant analytics made up of KPIs, charts and trends to help user monitor their chiller plant performance. User can also edit and create new analysis with the live data stream to create their customised report.
Further, the data analytics platform supports threshold alerts, daily/weekly/monthly subscription and automatic report generation.
The platform connects to most centralised chiller plants, SCADA systems, and common cloud-based data warehouse like Azure, GCP, AWS, etc.
The data analytics platform is built for chiller plants and HVAC systems. The highly flexible, full-featured data analytics capabilities help facility management monitor chiller plant performance, generate regular reports and receive alerts of exceptional conditions.
The platform is suitable for buildings owners, manufacturing sites that wish to embark on data analytics to improve chiller plant performance.
Monitor chiller plant conditions, receive alerts of exceptional conditions, automate regular reports.
This improves productivity and reduces energy wastage in centralised chiller plants.
