Generator Monitoring

How does it work?

We install sensors and smart devices, on the generator, that monitor various parameters such as – power generated, battery voltage, run hours, fuel level, etc. A gateway device then communicates these readings to our central server over the internet. The gateway works on GPRS, Wireless or Ethernet technology. You can then log onto the web application and view generator parameters, create reports – anywhere – and any time. Typical reports include generator status, fuel and maintenance reports etc.

Benefits

Improve Generator Performance – Monitor key generator performance metrics like – total energy produced, energy produced per liter of fuel, power quality and RMS parameters. If performance falls, you can take timely actions to bring performance back to acceptable level.

Reduce Maintenance Costs – Get information like hours run, battery voltages and temperature trends. You can use this information to schedule maintenance. This can reduce sudden downtime, overall maintenance cost and fuel consumption.

Prevent Fuel Theft – With the sustained rise of global energy prices, fuel costs are a major part of the total cost of ownership. Fuel cost could be as high as 60% of total cost of operations for a typical diesel generator running for about seven hours per day. This cost is driving many organizations to manage their generators more efficiently or consider other power system options. If you believe that, your generators are consuming more than required fuel. A possible reason could be fuel theft. You can easily identify fuel theft by comparing fuel consumption with actual power generation and fuel receipts.

Remote monitoring of diesel generator includes fuel consumption monitoring and monitoring of engine operation parameters. Such kind of monitoring helps to plan timely refueling and maintenance, also it is good way to determine and prevent fuel thefts and generator breakdown.

Technoton’s  solution for diesel generators is based on accurate tools for fuel consumption measurement: DFM fuel flow meters are mounted in fuel line, DUT-E fuel level sensors are installed in fuel tanks – all fuel sensors are connected together through S6 telematics bus, which is a single calbe for power-supplying all the device and receiving signal to CANUp telematics gateway. Received data is processed by CANUp and sent to web-based ORF4 telematics service (or directly to user by SMS, e-mail or via messenger.) Also, it is possible to organize autonomous solution using DFM fuel counter – no external power supply needed, no monthly costs for data transfer, all information is available on electronic display (LCD) of DFM fuel flow meter.

Technical options

Installing a DFM flowmeter equipped with  display provides with  autonomously controlling of  fuel consumption of diesel generator without transmitting data to  server. This solution is suitable for diesel generators located within the allotted area. Depending on amount of fuel consumed, stand-alone DFM, DFM D or DFM Marine flowmeters can be installed.

This solution ensures:

  • Accounting for actual fuel consumption;
  • Identify and prevent theft of fuel;
  • Accounting for actual engine operating time in different modes (starting, optimal, full load);
Usage cases

Solar energy company, Russsia

Task: control of fuel consumption at diesel-solar plants.

Solution : installation of DFM fuel flowmeters.

Result: customer knows volume of fuel consumption on his equipment and accurately determines his income from project.
