Energy Management Systems for banksFor the sake of continuous and secure operation, nowadays it is essential for banks to have their professional energy management system installed. The primary task of such systems is to guarantee secure power supply; therefore the application of high quality devices and softwares is a must.

In the case of bank centers the availability and right operation of servers that control bank transactions are of especial importance. Thus, multiple redundant solutions have to be applied in the case of intervening elements, communication network and softwares. So, power supply has to be developed from multiple directions on medium voltage side. In the case of haphazard external breaks of incoming, diesel generators and UPSs are needed to be applied. Of course, redundant medium voltage distribution board require redundant low voltage electrical network to be built. For the operation and control of circuit breakers on medium and low voltage network it is necessary to apply redundant PLC (e.g.: Hot-standby Quantum PLC). Its task is to configure connections in accordance with input conditions ensuring continuous energy supply. Above this system it is advised to install a redundant server which the control system can be installed on.

The primary aim of the software to be installed is to continuously control the system and keep track of the operation.
For instance:

  • schedule maintenance on the bases of CB operation numbers
  • keep track of changeovers in case of input breaks
  • monitor operation conditions of UPSs

The importance of monitoring the quality features of the power supply can neither be disregarded (in accordance with EN50160 power quality standard). Nor the availability of consumption data on the bases of which energy deposit fees can be optimized.

AVReporter Advanced provides a great solution for visualizing this information. Due to the redundant OPC sever and the redundant storage of data, by using this software, data can be accessed continuously and safely. That is to say, the parallel storage of data on multiple SQL servers excludes every possibility for data loss. By applying AVRWebpublisher module data can be accessed in WEB interface that ensures flexible and easy accessibility of information. The system not only provides continuous data access but also ensures high-level security due to strict authority rules and powerful data encryption. Because of its robust construction it is an ideal solution for large systems.

The strict and high quality solutions applied for bank systems can be adopted to other fields of business that require similar technical demands, for example datacenters, radar stations, server centers of cell phone providers.
