Software developer ICONICS has announced its expanded Wind AnalytiX software. This new software offers extensive integration of energy and meter sources into one unified platform with real-time monitoring, an extensive data historian, advanced distributed alarm management, and notification and data analytics.
Wind AnalytiX is said to quickly turn large amounts of real-time and historical data into valuable information and monitors renewables’ Overall Equipment Efficiency (OEE). Advanced dashboards deliver KPIs needed for optimum renewables management and help drive continuous improvement. Additional data analysis capabilities assure renewable assets are online and producing at specified performance. When failures occur, Wind AnalytiX issues alerts and maintenance notifications and will provide automatic guidance resulting in reduced downtime and reduced costs related to diagnostics and repairs.
The software includes:
EarthWorX which combines live maps using ESRI mapping technology as well as Google Maps and Microsoft Bing Maps. Users quickly view geographically dispersed wind and renewable assets, visualize real-time and historical equipment faults. View real-time data using patented Smart Pin Technology. Users can quickly zoom or pan through maps to navigate across their entire renewable assets and operations.
PortalWorX, a simple-to-configure dashboard technology delivers the world’s leading visualization to any Web browser. PortalWorX integrates with Microsoft SharePoint and Silverlight and provides customizable KPIs, charting, Excel grids, alarming, reports and many other dashboard Web parts. Easily customizable Web portals provide comprehensive, personalized visibility of your operations, maintenance and financial information, to help make decisions.
FDDWorX, Fault Detection and Diagnostics with advanced algorithms to analyze, detect, and predict equipment faults. When faults do occur, the system provides a list of probable causes with current estimated probabilities.
Hyper Historian, a high performance Plant Historian that can archive high volumes of equipment condition, power, and power quality data at high resolution and then deliver complex analysis, charting, and reporting.
AssetWorX, intelligent Asset Technology that lets users define assets and apply sophisticated intelligence and analytics to these assets. Defined assets can include wind turbines and substations based on the IEC61400 and IEC61850 standards. Analyses can be performed for energy aggregation and turbine performance. AssetWorX significantly decreases overall engineering time for the largest of wind power and utility operations.
“High oil prices and Middle East political instability are accelerating demand and simplifying justification of new wind-power projects, which stimulates the market need for automation tools necessary to maximize production of wind energy that have the most dramatic effect on profitability and asset utilization,” said Craig Resnick, Research Director, ARC Advisory Group. “Solutions such as ICONICS’ Wind AnalytiX provide the information needed through visualization and reporting tools that help wind power projects maximize their operational efficiency and reduce costs.”
