AUTOMATED SYSTEM OF ELECTRIC POWER TECHNICAL RECORD KEEPING AS AN EFFECTIVE TOOL OF COMPANY ENERGY MANAGEMENT

How much, when, where, why has manufacturing process consumed energy resources? Where, how, at the cost of what can we reduce energy consumption and how much will it cost?

The absence of valid answer to this question leads to the raise of company energy consumption, and it follows that production cost increases, and as a result, the competitiveness of a company reduces.

During manufacturing, energy costs are one of the most essential cost items. Under the conditions of constant energy price increase economical use of energy resources allows to cut final product costs resulting in company competitive growth at the market. Effective use of energy resources at modern industrial enterprises is impossible without integration of energy management system, which combines the complex of informational and analytical, technical and organizational and regulatory actions, directed to prudent use of energy resources in the company. Practical realization of energy flow marketing functions is based on the information about dynamics of this flow.

For accurate records of expenses for different kinds of energy resources at each step of the technological process, in April 2013 our specialists implemented automated system of electric power technical record keeping at the modern enterprise Knauf Gips Donbass (Soledar).

The main aims of this system are:

  • internal accounting management of electrical energy and gas consumption at operating departments for product unit requirement calculation and control and practical rational energy consumption;
  • increase of completeness, reliability, accuracy of information about energy and gas consumption;
  • increase of information processing efficiency;
  • providing of information about electrical energy and gas consumption by organization departments to administration and technical specialists;
  • providing standards for energy mode optimization;
  • automation of data summaries, analytical materials and report documents for administration.
  • implementation of hardware and software with high reliability, long term operation providing minimum payback period and investment protection;

decrease of operating load for the staff by means of transfer of the part of functions to implemented automated system of electric power technical record keeping (automatic acquisition, transfer and processing of information).
