E-POWER

Integrated Plant Management at your Fingertips

What is E-POWER?

E-POWER is a unique controller specifically designed for CHP and its related plant. It allows you to monitor over 200 parameters on your CHP system and many more on your energy plant.

The flexible integrated controller offers improved safety, always-on Internet connectivity, high quality touch screen and graphics.

E-POWER is different from other Genset system controllers as it is specifically designed with optimum functionality including:

  • Sophisticated data logging:
    • Trip counter
    • Immediate fault detection
    • Restart counts
    • Easy route cause analysis
    • Ignition energy
    • Enhanced synchronising
    • Knock levels
    • Spark advance
  • Designed for data collection, integration and metering
  • Assists in reducing on-site costs
  • Two integrated safety circuits ensuring total security
  • Touchscreen Human Machine Interface (HMI)
  • Always optimised heat production and utilisation.

 The E-POWER system can easily expand into:

  • Boiler controls; ensuring your boilers are fully optimised
  • MBus metering.

What is E-VISION?

E-VISION is the platform that collects, collates and reports all the energy generated from the CHP system and any connected related plant.

It is a fully integrated platform that allows the control of multiple energy systems located at one single site or at multiple sites.

    • Built-in customer access
    • Excel based reporting
    • Online reporting and analysis
    • Secure Cloud based servers
    • Worldwide access
    • Enables wider building control
    • Assists in reducing on sites costs
    • Shows demonstrable savings
      • Carbon Reduction
      • Financial
    • Monitoring of boiler and chiller heat usage
    • Optimisation of thermal store – controlling the flow and return
    • Controls the modulation and firing of boiler/heating plant.

E-POWER integration requirements The preferred connection is a dedicated ADSL router plugged into a local direct dial analogue PSTN line with an RJ45 lead then connected to the CHP panel. If a suitable internet connection is available on the site already, this can be used rather than the dedicated line. In this case we would simply need a data point available in the vicinity of the unit. This option does however leave the CHP units internet connection at risk of disruption due to issues with the customer’s IT infrastructure. Down time for maintenance and possible disruption due to heavy loading on the connection from other users, could all have some impact. The CHP is fitted with its own 3G router which is primarily there for commissioning purposes if no internet link is available at the time, or for ‘fail over’ operation where critical units can start using the 3G link if the sites hard wired connection goes down.
