DEVELOPMENT AND MARKET UPTAKE OF A SMART SYSTEM ABLE TO OPTIMISE ENERGY EFFICIENCY AND POWER QUALITY WITHOUT AFFECTING LOADS

Projektbeschreibung

Bessere Spannungsqualität für industrielle elektrische Anlagen

Unter Spannungsqualität versteht man die innerhalb eines vorgegebenen Bereichs gesicherte Übereinstimmung von Spannung, Frequenz und Wellenform eines Stromversorgungssystems. Industrieanlagen sind aufgrund der Dichte und Komplexität der am täglichen Betrieb beteiligten elektrischen Vorrichtungen besonders anfällig für Probleme mit der Spannungsqualität. Das EU-finanzierte Projekt ELECOTECH plant die Entwicklung eines intelligenten Systems, das die Spannungsqualität verbessert, ohne die elektrischen Geräte (Lasten) zu beeinträchtigen. Das ELECOTECH-System wird autonom sein und in der Hauptstromleitung installiert werden, um die Energieeffizienz zu maximieren, den Stromverbrauch zu senken und die durch Störungen in der Stromversorgung entstehenden Probleme zu beseitigen.

Ziel

One of the key approaches for Energy Efficiency (EE) in Industry is to improve the quality of energy, known as Power Quality (PQ). A EU Power Quality survey report estimated that EU suffers from a loss of 150 billion Euros per annum
due to various PQ issues in the industry, service and transport sectors, from which 90% of the total losses are
accounted to the industries. The more worrying statistic, however, is the Electric Power Research institute (EPRI) finding that 80% of PQ disturbances are generated within a facility, rather than from utility-supplied electricity. This can be explained because most of current solutions perform isolated PQ issues that do not take into account the load requirements, which is another key approach to improve global EE in facilities.

In this context, the main objective of ELECOTECH project will be the optimization, demonstration and commercialization of a
smart system for energy efficiency through improving power quality without affecting loads.

ELECOTECH solution is an autonomous system mainly installed in the powerline header that maximises energy efficiency,
reduces the electrical consumption and eliminates problems caused by power supply disturbances such as non-stabilized
input power, over-voltages or noise. It is an integrated approach composed of:
(1) a dynamic power electronics system with continuous information of the voltage wave, the intensity and phase shift;
(2) a zero-latency switching system that allows direct access to the network, avoiding stops in customer’s premises;
(3) a voltage regulation system to generate suitable responses based on several network parameters and load needs;
(4) a smart control system that is in charge of controlling and adapting ELECOTECH actions based on load requirements on
network parameters.

The integration of these systems in ELECOTECH device provides an increase of the energy efficiency (15%) and the
security level of energy in facilities, among other technical advantages.
