  5. 5. FINSENY,  FINESCE  –  ESB,  InTune   •  FINSENY  -­‐  determined  ICT  challenges  of  the   future  energy  grid   •  FINESCE  -­‐  trialling  2  use  cases:   1.  Renewable  energy  and  EV  integraBon  into  the  grid   •  •  •  Develop  and  test  charging  control  systems     Use  both  WiMAX  and  LTE  technology   Measure  system  response  Bme   2.  Smart  grid  communicaBons  over  IP-­‐based  network   •  •  •  Legacy  systems  a  problem  –  no  innovaBon,  no   economies  benefits  compared  to  IP-­‐based   Stringent  electrical  protecBon  requirements  (µ-­‐seconds)   CriBcal  grid  security  tesBng   5!
  6. 6. SECO  –  Smart  Energy  Cluster  OpBmisaBon   Storage! Battery, Thermal, Pumped Hydro, CAES! Distributed Generation! Renewables – Wind, Solar! CHP! SECO! Smart Energy Cluster Optimisation! Market! SEM Pricing! Wind Forecasting! Tariffs! Demand Prediction! DSUʼs AGUʼs! Load – Selectable, Predictable! EVʼs, Thermal, Pumping, Data Centres! 6!
  7. 7. SECO  –  Smart  Energy  Cluster  OpBmisaBon   Create  a  SoDware  applica9on  including   management  algorithms  to  maximise  the  workings   of  an  industry  park  with:   •  Many  businesses  with  different  energy  demand   needs  and  demand  profiles.   •  Mul9ple  Energy  Sources  including  Electricity   Grid,  Wind  Turbine,  Solar,  Geothermal,   Generator(s)  and  Storage  Capacity.     7!
  8. 8. Electric  Car  Charger  Management   Car  Charger  Event  Management  and  Maintenance   System  (CEMMS)  for  Intelligent  Transport  Devices.   8!
  9. 9. Electric  Cars  as  Storage  (Vehicle  to  Grid)   9!
  10. 10. Electric  Cars  as  Storage   •  Power  storage  can  smooth  peaks  and  troughs  in  power   consump9on  –  also  can  enhance  produc9on  in  microgrid   clusters.   •  Electric  cars  as  a  virtual  baXery  bank  -­‐  requires  accurate   forecas9ng  of  capacity  and  demand.   •  Driver  behaviour  can  be  inferred  from  electronic  work   calendars,  car  chargers  and  GPS.   •  Developing  simulators  to  predict  daily  storage  capacity   and  how  this  could  be  traded  at  key  9mes.   •  Op9mising  charging  schedules  for  electric  cars  in  a   microgrid  cluster.   10 10!
  11. 11. Wind  Turbine  Data   Check  Wind  Speed  è  Power  Output  against   Manufacturer’s  Spec.   11!
  12. 12. Recently  Completed  Energy  Projects   1.  GreenT   2.  ASTRAL   3.  FINSENY   4.  EMPATH   5.  Green  Data  Centres   6.  Commodity  Prices   12!

  16. 16. ASTRAL   Ø  People-­‐Centric  Building  Management  System.   Ø  IntegraBng  all  systems  in  the  building  from   lighBng/heaBng  to  individual  plugged  in   devices.   Ø  Policy  Managed  –  for  example,  when  one  staff   member  leaves  the  office,  their  PC,  desk   devices,  heaBng  and  lighBng  gets  turned  off   Ø  Integrated  Hierarchical  Policies  at  the  level  of   person,  office,  floor,  building  and  campus.   16!
  17. 17. EMPATH   17!
  18. 18. EMPATH   For  the  next  24  hours  predict:   1. Overall  Energy  Demand  at  every  15  minute   level.  2.76%  accuracy.  Eirgrid  sampled  at  >7%.   2.  Wind  Energy  Supply.  43%  inaccuracy.  BeKer   than  Eirgrid  46%.   3.  Price.  21%  inaccuracy.  Same  as  Eirgrid.   18!
  19. 19. Ac9ve  Green  Data  Centres   Sustainability   •  Data-­‐Centres  cause  2%  of  global  CO2  emissions.   •  Renewable  Energy  fluctuates  across  countries.   •  Cooling  Efficiency  dependant    on  temperature   SoluBon   Allocate  resources  in   different  countries,  based   on  energy  availability.   19!
  20. 20. Ac9ve  Green  Data  Centres   Breeding BeXer  Solu9ons   •  Evolu9onary  Compu9ng  models  the  natural  evolu9on  process   to  find  the  op9mal  solu9on  to  a  problem.   •  Use  Gene9c  Algorithm  to  maximise  the  renewable  energy   consumed  and  minimise  the  cooling  energy  used.   •  Determine  best  loca9on  for  services  based  on  where   renewable  energy  is  most  available.   20!
  21. 21. Commodity  Price  Predic9on   Un-­‐named  client.  Design  a  System  to  use  past   events  to  show  impact  on  the  price  of  Natural   Gas.  Including:   •  Weather   •  Economic   •  Conflict   •  PoliBcal     Use  this  and  our  knowledge  of  future  events  to   predict  future  prices.   21!
