Process and control today | Visit COPA-DATA at All Energy 2022
14/04/2022 COPA-DATA UK Ltd
Automation software provider COPA-DATA will be exhibiting for the first time at All-Energy, taking place 11-12 May 2022 at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC), Glasgow. Focused on helping businesses become net zero, COPA-DATA will showcase its latest zenon platform software along with several application demos that help visualize renewable energy, utility storage and monitoring systems. energy and digital substations. COPA-DATA will be at stand D31.
The needs of the energy sector are changing and the All-Energy show brings together industry experts to help design a net zero future. To support the energy industry‘s transition to renewable resources, COPA-DATA will showcase its latest innovations at the show, such as its zenon software platform for smart grids.
The software provides the interfaces, control functions and overview options needed to achieve transparency across an entire network. It can also be deployed on almost any communication standard and brings together tons of data in one unified place to streamline processes.
COPA-DATA’s zenon is also certified according to the current IEC 61850 protocol for standardizing network communication. In addition, zenon uses a range of other protocols to enable communication between a multitude of different devices, regardless of age, manufacturer or protocol.
There will also be a series of live demos at the booth, focusing on data management and how to report data effectively. The first demonstration focuses on human-machine interface (HMI) of substations, photovoltaics (PV) and battery energy storage systems (BESS). Here, the PV and BESS application bundles offer out-of-the-box control. And, if you’re using COPA-DATA’s SunSpec data model to pass device data between two devices, all internal markings can be pre-configured.
Other demonstrations focus on renewable energy, including wind farm applications, with driving wind reports and the Energy Data Management System (EDMS). The new EDMS demo explains how users can maximize uptime, while reducing power consumption to net zero, by understanding power consumption at the individual process level.
“The industrial sector accounted for 38% of total global final energy consumption over the past two years,” explained Aaron Cowdry, Technical Energy Consultant at COPA-DATA UK. “Users need to find ways to reduce energy consumption and at the show we will show how industrial manufacturers can control processes with the same system to achieve this.
“For example, one way is to collect data. Data is valuable, which is why an EDMS should use Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to collect consumption data from across the facility. By analyzing different equipment and processes, this data enables operators to make smarter decisions and achieve net zero goals.
