Identifying mission-critical energy inefficiencies

Paladin real-time energy management advisor is designed to assess and reduce facility energy costs. Here are 3 tips for energy cost reductions.<br/>

San Diego, CA – EDSA Micro Corp., a provider of power analytics solutions for electrical power system modeling and diagnostics, has introduced its Paladin Live platform: which is designed to help isolate and reduce energy inefficiencies in mission-critical facilities.  The Paladin Live Real-Time Energy Management Advisor is said to help companies assess and reduce energy costs in three ways:

  • Increase energy efficiency by showing precisely where, when, and how energy is being consumed, in order to assess where opportunities for energy saving may exist and enable facility personnel to conduct detailed, what-if simulations of energy efficiency strategies;

  • Improve facility reliability and productivity by enabling facility operators to understand the real-time “system health” of their power infrastructure, to enact preventive measures; and

  • Enhance profitability by enabling facility operators to fully understand the capacity and energy requirements of their present power system. This enables them to develop strategies for maximizing their existing operations before embarking on costly renovations or relocations.

Paladin Live’s “model-based” architecture is said to enable organizations to:

  • Conduct model-based analyses of the power/energy network, to ensure the highest possible levels of accuracy and energy efficiency;

  • Perform “What-If” simulations, to allow users to see the impact of decisions before implementing/investing in them, or simply test drive energy-saving ideas that could not be conducted on live infrastructure;

  • Create vendor-neutral forensic analyses that protects customers’ investment in their current infrastructure; keeping them from unnecessarily replacing mission critical equipment.

When combined with EDSA’s Paladin Reports, the platform’s standard energy report, and EDSA’s Blackboard Simulator, the Energy Module allows users to see what the changes would mean to the Green Grid’s standards of Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) and Data Center Infrastructure Efficiency (DCiE).
