Power is critical to all buildings and their tenets within. Electrical and power systems are becoming more complex as technology progresses. Likewise, systems, tools, and processes are using more energy than ever. Since nearly all aspects of the country rely on the power infrastructure, the need for comprehensive monitoring of real-time electrical and power systems is vital. Power management systems are capable of many things and can be useful for anything between a single building and sprawling campuses. Today, let’s dive into what power management systems are precisely, and how they can help your commercial facility.
What is a Power Management System?
Power management systems are designed to ensure the safe, efficient, and reliable operation of electrical and power distribution systems. This can include devices and assets connected to the distribution system. Some of the main tasks and goals include avoiding short circuits, fires, reducing energy costs, recovering from outages, supplying uninterrupted service, and setting forth standards for numerous things.
Examples of Power Management Systems
Power management systems are based on modern power distribution systems that have connected devices and sensors to collect digital information on the power and electricity running through the network of devices. Based on this principle, many power management systems are several individual devices. Such devices include things like power meters, breaker trips units, or uninterrupted power supplies. All crucial electrical and power systems can be monitored using these devices.
What is the Impact?
The most advanced and recent power management systems offer exceptional monitoring and functionality for a wide range of applications and devices found in most facilities. Things like energy and power analytical tools are now available for large multi-purpose buildings as well as small shops. Below are some technologies, and their impacts observed:
- Power and energy efficiency. Monitoring the electrical usage on all devices in a building can help engineers and managers achieve maximum energy efficiency and prevent electrical overload. In addition, monitoring these things can help decrease energy waste and drive improved energy-efficient building designs.
- Equipment monitoring. Devices that are part of a power management system are often designed with a specific use in mind. This can help building managers monitor and change systems or processes as they see fit.
If a facility houses a business, these types of impacts can be especially important for the health of the business. Extra costs can hurt profit margins, making competitors seem more dangerous to a business’s success. Schneider Electric’s business solutions ensure your operations are comprehensively monitored and continuously optimized.
