Pulse energy webinar, take control of your building's energy with advanced metering and software


Published on

Advanced metering and software solutions give facility operators greater control over energy use. However, the variety of meters available and the specific needs of different organizations make it difficult to know what is the best solution for your buildings.

This informative webinar featured Harish Raisinghani, Systems Engineer at Pulse Energy. Harish oversees the deployment and configuration of metering hardware systems in a variety of commercial and institutional buildings for Pulse Energy, and in his presentation he:

* Explained how the right combination of hardware and software can let you take control of and reduce your facility's energy use

* Described the characteristics and differences between analog, digital, and smart meters

* Used real life examples to illustrate the typical metering needs of university, healthcare and commercial office buildings

Pulse energy webinar, take control of your building's energy with advanced metering and software

  1. 1. Take Control of Your Building’s Energy Use with the Right Combination of Hardware and Software Harish Raisinghani, Systems Engineer Pulse Energy
  2. 2. 3 Things You Want to Know About ThisPresentation1. The presentation will be 45 minutesincluding Q&A2. You can send your questions to usvia the GoToWebinar control panel atany time3. We will send out a link to therecording after the presentation
  3. 3. Agenda• Metering survey results• 3 types of electrical meters explained• Typical metering needs of: – Health care facilities – Education campuses – Office buildings• Advanced software for your advanced meter• Q&A
  4. 4. Your Main Reasons for Looking at an AdvancedHardware/Software Solution
  5. 5. Why meter your building?• Window into building’s energy performance• Make better operating decisions• Reduce peak load and night time base loads• Detect anomalies
  6. 6. Three Types of Electrical MetersElectromechanical Electronic Smart(Analog) (Digital) Meters
  7. 7. Electrical Meters: Electromechanical (Analog)• Measure consumption and demand values• Limited communication functionality (KYZ relay)
  8. 8. Electrical Meters: Electronic (Digital)• Measure and calculate multiple power quality factors• Several communication modes (for remote monitoring)• One-way communication
  9. 9. Electrical Meters: Smart Meters• Measure and calculate multiple power quality factors• Two-way communication between consumer and central system• Real-time power pricing
  10. 10. Electrical Meters: Summary Electromechanical Electronic Smart • Only consumption • Voltage, Current, • Information and demand Power factor, recorded at 1 hour values reactive power granularity or less • Basic telemetry – • Several telemetry • 2-way Pulse outputs modes communication • One-way communication
  11. 11. Advanced Metering in Health Care FacilitiesNeeds and characteristics:• Essential services must remain reliable• New equipment is constantly being added• Determining an accurate energy baseline
  12. 12. Advanced Metering in Health Care FacilitiesValue of advanced metering:• Identify when large equipment is operating inefficiently• Establish night-time energy baseloads• Find opportunities for more efficient steam production
  13. 13. Advanced Metering on CampusNeeds and characteristics:• Large, complicated systems• Different types of buildings with different requirements• High sustainability expectations from students• Reducing energy while maintaining occupant comfort
  14. 14. Advanced Metering on CampusValue of advanced metering:• Greater public engagement• Prioritize maintenance backlog based on energy efficiency benefits• Report energy and greenhouse gas reductions to stakeholders
  15. 15. Advanced Metering in Office BuildingsNeeds and characteristics• Limited number of large equipment• Energy is an asset to manage• Need high level building performance over long periods of time
  16. 16. Advanced Metering in Office BuildingsValue of advanced metering• Continuously identify and detect anomalies• Tenant engagement and empowerment
  17. 17. The Landing: An Example of a Smart Building• 200,000 square feet• Mixed commercial tenants• Electrical, water, gas meters• Bill tenants individually
  18. 18. Connecting Software to Metering Hardware
  19. 19. Occupant / Public Engagement
