Ørsted has developed a Site Monitoring Center, SMC, for Wind Power.
SMC is a critical web application supporting each Windfarm Site Manager in the decision making process with the exact insight needed for optimal planning and asset optimization at this specific Site.
The users can configure their own threshold, like the max value of specific alarms before raising an event.
The real-time infrastructure is provided by OSIsoft including the API for Asset Framework (AF) and PI Event Framework.
OSIsoft provides performance and scalability for high frequent, near real time data, and PI AF specifically translates the sensor information into an asset structure, providing all relevant - but also only the relevant information to Site Managers.
By integrating to Esri GIS, the information is visualized spatially in an intuitive way, thereby often adding even more information.
Integration to SAP PM is translating a Notification into a Work Order, thereby translating insight into action.
