Development of a smart platform for the supervision of energy consumption in MPBS Company

Overview of the project

Part 1: Development of a system for monitoring the power consumption of a production line:

It involves designing and implementing a system for monitoring the power consumption of a production line, capable of capturing all information related to electricity consumption and sending it to a supervisory room. In the case of a fault or malfunction, the system warns managers in real time.

The system will optionally include a professional power analyzer connected to current sensors. The information will be sent over a wired or wireless link, depending on availability, to a control room through an interface developed in Labview. The administrator will be able to send or receive the various updates and will be able to supervise and consult the statistics of the power consumption of the production line.

Part 2: Design and implementation of an intelligent lighting network management system:

As a first step, increasing the intelligence of the lighting will consist of modulating the lighting of each of the light points according to the weather conditions, the time, the department, the presence of people, maintenance, etc. This modulation capability not only extends the life of the lamps, but also saves energy. The efficiency of a lamp decreases towards the end of its life and replacing it in time makes it more economical and also extends the life of those on the same lighting network.

In a second step, the integration of information and communication technologies on the lighting network will make it possible to inform in real time the exact consumption of each lamp and to indicate when it must be replaced. The remote supervision of the lighting network will avoid moving each time to turn on or off certain premises.

The project is included in "Smart City" projects and tends to make the lighting network intelligent in order to minimize consumption and allow a real gain in resources.

Several constraints limit the choice of the solution. It is necessary to look for an electronic system which receives a bidirectional frame so it needs a wide bandwidth and must work in real time. This should not have a significant impact on the power consumption of the equipment, in addition to the size that affects the arrangement.

The project consists in implementing an embedded system that is useful for transmitting frames from the lamps via a wired or wireless link to the supervision room and receiving a frame from the control room.From a developed interface, the administrator can send or receive the various updates. He will also be able to supervise and consult the statistics of each lamp and each zone.
