Locating sources of energy intake in such large building as super- or hypermarkets is extremely difficult. With these types of facilities, it is generally recommended to divide devices into groups, such as: hall lighting, air conditioning, refrigeration, textiles, bakery, etc. Such an organised structure translates into a very precise view of the energy consumption of individual groups of receivers. Each device group has its own set of operational characteristics – for example they work at different times. Leaving the lights on at night is, of course, undesirable. However, despite the apparent awareness of the negative effects of such habits, it is difficult to tackle them effectively without the necessary tools. Our system is able to capture this type of abnormality, so that the user has full control over the functioning of the device.
For super- or hypermarkets, the ideal solution is to use Evo-Commander, a tool designed especially for the large facilities market niche. It allows the user to control all devices at the facility, and the installed meters monitor power consumption and report power outages automatically. In the case of a large number of facilities, full surveillance of supermarkets is centralized with the server-based Evosystem application.
