1 Energy Analysis with SAP MII


1.1 Solution Overview
SAP is delivering preconfigured, best practice templates for the solution SAP Manufacturing Integration and Intelligence (http://www.sap.com/solutions/manufacturing/manufacturingintelligence-software/index.epx). Energy Analysis with SAP MII is the result of a successful coinnovation project, leveraging the experience of SAP and partner experts from RTS Inc., as well as customer and industry input. Energy Analysis with SAP MII is designed to help organizations manage energy use and cost and allow them to develop sustainable green strategies. This software solution is tightly integrated into the clients existing systems for process monitoring and control. The application provides information to the appropriate personnel within an organization to improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon footprint within the enterprise. Characteristics and Benefits: Performance of Energy Consumption Reporting and Visualization makes data useful to enable a continuous energy improvement plan Allows Energy Analysis Comparisons & Cost Allocation o Production shifts, lines o Departments o Significant assets Granular Energy Consumption Visibility ~ 15min intervals Early detection of poor Energy Performance Support Budgeting & Management Accounting Shadows Utility Meters, avoids the need of utility billing reconciliations Helps avoid peak demand charges by providing immediate alerts Can be deployed as a standard solution across all plants and sites, regardless of underlying production and IT systems Monitors overall plant demand Energy Analysis with SAP MII consolidates all energy related data (sources, costs, control and monitoring points) into a data layer and provides tools to access and interact with the data. While conceptually straightforward, todays energy analysis systems mostly lack that kind of capability. It is worth noting that Energy Analysis with MII is not a control system and should not be confused with building automation systems (BAS) or a Manufacturing Execution System (MES). Energy Analysis with SAP MII is broader in scope than control systems, reaching well beyond both BAS and MES. It provides data collection, data access, diagnostics and monitoring capabilities, a historical data storage, and a lot more as detailed throughout this paper. Similarly, EMIS should not be confused with utility billing systems. It encompasses billing and meter data, but extends beyond and connects billing information directly to the related operational data. Energy Analysis with SAP MII provides actionable insight through the consolidation of data from all of the institutions disparate energy and building management systems and the interactive access to that data, providing the facilitys operations and engineering departments with an accurate picture of operations. With facts in hand, they can steward their assets, lower total energy consumption and operational costs quickly and effectively, and have the ability to verify and measure results. The starting point is the flexible Executive Overview that displays the global energy status.

Executive Overview Charts display the six months history of the selected site consumption values against the consumption target values in the system in a Bar chart. Further, it allows , consumption and cost comparisons per production unit comparing all the sites. Energy Analysis displays the meter consumption values against the meter consumption target values in the system in a report format for all or a particular group (location and/or asset), as well as individual meters on that group. This provides the facility for the user to select the location and unit of measurement and the date range. Meter Readings that provides ability to manually update the meter readings for all meters in the system. User can add, modify or delete the records for the selected meter. A push button will allow user to create notification to verify the reading values. Delivering simplified user interfaces, preconfigured business processes and content, as well as full installation and user documentation, Energy Analysis with SAP MII templates are designed to reduce implementation cost, effort and risk. Companies can thus leverage existing investments, and profit from lower total cost of ownership and time-to-value. To ensure SAP customers and partners can leverage these templates two documents are provided: A technical guide that supports the implementation. It describes technical aspects needed to set-up Energy Analysis with SAP MII and implement the templates An application guide this document - covers the documentation of all functions and features of the templates as well as a user guide

Application Guide

2 Business Conditions
The functions described in this Application Guide are part of a larger chain of integrated business processes or scenarios. As a result, you must have completed the following processes and fulfilled the following business conditions before you can start any activities in this scenario: Business Condition You have decided the location of all meters and sensors. You have decided on additional metering or measurement (if any). You have decided what type of meters to use units of measure. You have decided and assigned the energy accountability centers (groups), with required granularity (down to plants, lines, assets). Scenario Prerequisite Define Time Interval Reading for Consumption Data Prerequisite Develop the Meter list. Prerequisite Develop the Groups list.

2.1 Prerequisites
2.1.1 Define Time Interval Reading for Consumption Data
The best option for collecting consumption interval data is for the meter to provide the data directly at regular intervals, or to attach a reading device that can provide the consumption data to Energy Analysis with SAP MII. The application must understand and track the hierarchy of meter data that comes from a purchased utility. The data hierarchy goes from utility type, to supplier, to account, to meter and rate. A single rate is typically used for multiple meters spanning multiple accounts. Optimal Time Interval There are a number of considerations in selecting a standard time series interval used by Energy Analysis with SAP MII, the most significant of which is ensuring that it is able to display sufficient data to identify transitionsthis means that there should be enough data points gathered to discern performance fluctuations across transition time periods such as between day and night, office hours and nonworking hours, etc. With this information, behavior patterns and problems become apparent quickly. For this reason, and because electricity is frequently metered within the same time interval, 15 minutes is a proposed appropriate time series upon which data can be normalized. Longer intervals do not provide sufficient data granularity to always see behavioral changes. Shorter intervals can increase the data storage and processing requirements by 300% (or more) while increasing the information value very little. Additionally, because capturing data at 15-minute intervals does not require a great deal of storage space to house the data records, data can be stored for the lifetime of a piece of equipment20 years or more. The time interval defined here is used to schedule the SAP MII transaction acquiring the data from the meters, in the SAP MII schedule editor. See the Configuration guide on how the time period schedule is set up. Electricity Today most electric utilities quantify consumption by averaging the demand over a 15-minute period (standard interval). The majority of electric utilities make the interval data available electronically to the customers, although again, not always in convenient ways to collect it. Both 15-minute average demand and month-to-date consumption are required for Energy Analysis with SAP MII. Similarly, electric bills with determinants must be stored in the database too (for SAP AG Page 6 of 22

Energy Analysis with SAP MII

Application Guide

reasons discussed later) and, because billing rates change over time, it is important that Energy Analysis with SAP MII can accommodate this dynamic data and propagate these adjustments. Natural Gas Due to the fact that natural gas utility companies rarely bill based upon readily obtainable standard time intervals (a fact which has led many institutions to install their own gas meters to validate billing), it is important that the natural gas meters installed throughout the site are connected to the automated metering or building automation system for data collection. It is also critical that the meter configuration and BAS / MES point configuration collect running totals of consumption flow, etc. as well as instantaneous readings. Running total data is required to make it possible to reconstruct the inevitable gaps and missed readings. Chilled Water While many organizations generate their own chilled water for air conditioning, etc., some chilled water is purchased from third-party utility companies. Similar problems exist concerning metering, again leading some organizations to purchase their own meters to validate bills. Because chilled water generation is tied to electric consumption, suppliers are increasingly moving towards more accurate time-series billing. Steam Like chilled water, steam is often produced by an organization itself, but, when purchased, it is typically billed based upon time intervals ranging from 15 minutes to one hour.

2.1.2 Develop Groups List


Organizational Information Organizational information is required for Energy Analysis with SAP MII, so that it can roll up cost center information. Once Energy Analysis with SAP MII allocates costs to each space, organizational information is required that can relate space to department (or cost center). It is incumbent upon Energy Analysis with SAP MII to adapt to any hierarchical structure and to the constantly changing organizational structure of the institution. Energy Analysis with SAP MII should not burden the space management system or the personnel maintaining space planning data with this task. In essence, Energy Analysis with SAP MII increases the value of the investment already made in existing space planning systems. Space Planning Data Space planning data are required by Energy Analysis with SAP MII in order to identify energy costs at the space level. Space planning systems (SPS) contain information concerning the use and allocation of all areas within a campus or facility. They map the hierarchy of the campus by site, zone, building, floor and room. Space planning systems also understand the relationships between space and cost centers. Both SPS and Energy Analysis with SAP MII have distinct, complementary roles. Space Plannings role is to maintain the space relationships (since occupancy and cost centers change) and to transfer cost center information into the general ledger. The role of Energy Analysis with SAP MII is to deliver accurate energy costs down to the space level where the SPS can roll up the costs by cost center. Naming Conventions There is a complete lack of uniformity in how buildings and systems are labeled within an institution. Todays facility organizations use building automation systems, store utility bills and meter readings in Excel or some utility system, generate their own utility bills for steam and chilled water, create campus maps and engineering drawings, maintain space planning systems, and work with outside engineering and construction firms. Each group has their own systems for specific tasks, each with a different nuance to the same information. This is unlikely to be prevented or be brought under control - hence Energy Analysis with SAP MII should be able to present to each specific user group the naming convention they are familiar with, while providing the cross reference information required.

SQL push selection is used for all meters for which the consumption and demand values are to be manually updated or automatically fed into EMIS MII database. Dropdown with all available units of measure. If it does not exist, create it first in the appropriate screen. It should correspond with the real meter settings for data acquisition. A disabled meter is not allowed to have any new energy readings, and is not being taken into consideration for reports.

Acquisition

Selecting SQL Push, consumption and demand data is saved into MII EMIS database using 3rd party software. SQL Pull selection determines that the MII transaction will try to pull the data from existing systems.

User selection of SQL Push or SQL Pull.

UOM

Unit of measure, used to define the unit of measure of the consumption and demand value, recorded for the selected meter. Meter status, used for reporting and data acquisition.

Select the Unit of Measure.

Meter Status

Select meter status (Active / Disabled).

3.7 Units of Measure Configuration


3.7.1 Use
Units of Measure Configuration allows the user to see all the units of measure available in the system, add or update their names and descriptions, or delete them together with the associated information when necessary.

3.7.2 Procedure
1. Under Configuration tab click on then Units of Measure tab. The units of measure are displayed in the ekwh Display area. 2. Click on a unit of measure in the ekwh Display area. The Input Panel area displays details of the selected unit of measure. 3. To change the details, change the content of the corresponding field, and press the Update button. 4. To delete a unit of measure, press the Delete button 5. To add a new unit of measure, press the Add button

3.7.3 Result
Units of measure are displayed and can be changed and deleted by the user. The following table summarizes the field available for Units of Measure Configuration.

ekWh Factor

This is the numeric input of equivalent kilowatts hour (EMIS unit of energy) for the selected or new unit of measure.

User has to input the ekwh factor (decimal value) (i.e. selected / new unit of measure = X ekwh)

Numeric value, decimals allowed. The EMIS database stores only equivalent kilowatt hours energy values for all defined meters.

Add Button Update Button Delete Button

Allows the user to add new record-sets into the system (units of measure and characteristic information) Allows the user to update existing record-sets into the system (units of measure and characteristic information) Allows the user to delete record-sets into the system (units of measure and characteristic information)

It is possible to include currencies as units of measure. In this case, the ekWh Factor will reflect how many kWh can be bought by one unit of currency. The energy reporting screen allows selection of each defined unit of measure, so that consumption and targets for groups and/or meters can be expresses in the selected currency.

3.8 Groups Configuration


3.8.1 Use
Groups Configuration allows the user to see the entire set of meter groups (locations) available in the system. The user can update their names and hierarchical relationship or delete them. For reporting purposes it is required to define a specific meter group for each location (e.g. plant) defined in the master data. Within a meter group, all consumption and target values for each individual monitored energy meter or defined sub-group of meters are rolled up into the parent group. A sub-meter (i.e. meters defined with a parent meter) consumption and/or target values are not summed up into the parent group, since the corresponding values are already included in the readings from the parent meter. Sub-meter data is mainly used for energy balance calculations and/or determining the overall energy loss within the energy distribution and/or energy generation system.

3.8.2 Procedure
1. Under Configuration tab click on then Groups tab. The meter groups (locations) are displayed in the Meter Groups Display area. 2. Click on a meter group (location) meter group in the Meter Groups Display area. The Input Panel area displays details of the selected meter group (location). 3. To change the details, change the content of the corresponding field, and press the Update button.
