ENGLISH - Headline - Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. Commissioned by the Ecuadorean government to resolve a complex environmental issue confronting the Galapagos Islands, one that threatened the biological sanctuary’s UNESCO designation as a world heritage site, Siemens has developed a hybrid electricity generation system using renewable fuels that could serve as a model for clean power in decades to come.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. UNESCO was worried not only about the pollution but the risks incurred by the delivery of the plant’s diesel fuel by ship from the mainland 600 miles away. In recent years, two big fuel loads were spilled during the transfer from ship to power plant, fouling the island’s coastline and threatening the fragile ecosystem. The United Nations cultural agency put Ecuador on notice that a cleaner electric power solution had to be found or the Galapagos could lose its coveted “world patrimony” distinction.

 

Ecuador, with the key support from the German government, issued an invitation to global engineering companies to submit bids to design a reliable, environmentally clean system using renewable fuels, but the technical and logistical challenges of building and maintaining such as system on a remote island proved formidable. In the end, Siemens was the only bidder. Its proposal: A “hybrid” power plant that combined solar power generation with a biofuels power component that used a little known nut as its power source.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. At just 1.8 megawatts of maximum capacity, Siemens’ proposal was for a power plant with a tiny fraction of the generational power the company is accustomed to building. Among the global power plants Siemens commissioned this year, for example, were three in Egypt that combined are capable of generating 14,400 MW of electricity. But for Siemens, size was not the decisive issue, said Sajjad Khan, Siemens’ manager for the Galapagos power project. The company was intrigued by the Isabela project’s logistical challenges, the importance of preserving a unique ecosystem for future generations, and in proving the hybrid system’s groundbreaking technology as part of its commitment to sustainability.

Lore Ipsum: “We decided to invest in this technology because we believe in the overall philosophy behind it, a 100% renewable project,” Khan said.  “It combines the intermittency of solar power with another source of renewable fuel you can rely on. It was an opportunity to introduce the technology and pilot it for other projects to come,” Khan said.

 

The hybrid’s system’s renewable technology consists of three main components: A 952-kW solar energy “farm” consisting of some 3,024 photovoltaic panels; a 1625 kW  biodiesel generation system made up of five 325-kW generation sets, and a battery storage element can add 660 kW instantaneously when needed. Tying it all together is a unique control system that Siemens is showcasing at Isabela. It includes proprietary software to manage, among other functions, the energy flows to and from the batteries.

Cross Heading - Lorem ipsum - Overview of benefits

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. The digital twin of the product is created as early as the definition and design stage of a planned product. This allows engineers to simulate and validate product properties depending on the respective requirements: for example, is the product stable, and is it intuitive to use? Does the car bodywork offer the lowest possible air resistance? Do the electronics operate reliably? Whether it involves mechanics, electronics, software, or system performance, the digital twin can be used to test and optimize all of these elements in advance.

The same applies to the digital twin of production. It involves every aspect, from the machines and plant controllers to entire production lines in the virtual environment. This simulation process can be used to optimize production in advance with PLC code generation and virtual commissioning. As a result, sources of error or failure can be identified and prevented before actual operation begins. This saves time and lays the groundwork for customized mass production, because even highly complex production routes can be calculated, tested, and programmed with minimal cost and effort in a very short time.
 

In turn, the digital twin of performance is constantly fed with operational data from products or the production plant. This allows information like status data from machines and energy consumption data from manufacturing systems to be constantly monitored. In turn, this makes it possible to perform predictive maintenance to prevent downtime and optimize energy consumption. And some companies use data-driven services to develop new business models, as shown in the example of mechanical engineering firm Heller. At the same time, data-driven knowledge about systems like MindSphere – the open, Cloud-based IoT operating system from Siemens – can be fed back into the entire value chain all the way to the product system. This generates a completely closed decision-making loop for the continuous optimization process.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. The system has been fully operational since October – but only after an extensive testing period at pilot projects in Ecuador and at a mock-up in Germany. Installing the project with its 600 tons of machinery and construction material was a massive undertaking, made unusually complex by the fact that there are no quays or jetties in the Isabela island to which vessels can moor.

 

The new hybrid power plant has already delivered dramatic environmental benefits.  Because it avoided burning 33,000 liters of diesel that fueled the old plant each month, the new power plant saved 88 tons of CO2 emissions and one fuel delivery during October. Moreover, the new plant is much less noisy, operating at an average reduction of 30 decibels, which is the perceived difference between a  jigsaw and a conversation at low volume. And the system proved to be reliable, operating at 99% capacity.

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet. The issue revolved around replacing the highly pollutive electric power system on Isabela Island, the largest of the national park’s 21 islands and the launch pad for tens of thousands of global tourists who each year take boat tours of the archipelago and its wondrous wildlife. Until October, the island and its hotels, restaurants and 2,500 permanent residents were served by a diesel-powered plant that emitted high levels of smog and noise.

Artificial intelligence
In its truest sense, artificial intelligence refers to applications in which machines perform tasks that would normally require functions of human intelligence such as learning, judging, and problem-solving. Tools and technical solutions are being developed for this purpose, enabling humans to work better by extending their abilities.

Machine learning
Machine learning (ML) is what underlies the actual “intelligence” in AI. Computers are trained to recognize patterns in unstructured datasets using algorithms, and to make decisions by themselves based on this “knowledge.” The goal is to have the machine learn from the data and, based on this, use the experience it acquires to constantly improve its ability to perform its tasks. 

Deep learning
Deep learning (DL) relies on the use of deep neural networks. The computer accesses data at several node levels simultaneously in order to identify connections, draw conclusions, and make both predictions and ­decisions. Self-learning algorithms enable the machine to solve even complex non-linear problems by itself, and to interact without instructions.

Expert for industrial networks, works in the Presales Support team at Siemens and in training courses shares his many years of experience and expert knowledge with Siemens employees, certified Solution Partners, and customers of machine manufacturers.
