Analytics for solution team, V. Boutin
Schneider Electric at a glance
Customers are looking for integrated
solutions that make their lives easier while
optimizing costs. Innovation is essential to
satisfying those requirements.
The convergence of automation, information,
and communication technology has created
dramatic new opportunities for advancing
energy efficiency.
Innovation is about combining these
opportunities with smart services to deliver
high-value yet easy-to-deploy solutions.

7 Analytic features for
Operational Efficiency
to create new information
such as prevision, patterns, early detection of
problems
Data
correlation &
prediction
Context
dependent
control
to take better actions
regarding organization, planning and control
to provide rationale for
building an optimized design and development
strategy for the future
Decision

scheduling
Performance
evaluation &
benchmarking
Condition
monitoring,
diagnostic,
maintenance
Virtual or smart sensors
Get advanced information (such as
fermentation for beer micro-filtration, or
milk powder hulidity…) by collecting
and mixing several correlated data
items
Early detection of
abnormalities
Few concrete examples
Extract early signals that would detect
abnormal behaviours and possibly link to
performance degradations
Demand response for
water distribution
Determine the best srategy for
pumping, while ensuring that the
water demand will be entirely met,
and leveraging variable energy
prices (modulation market)
Technologies to make it happen
Better control, supervision, operation management,
design and continuous improvement

An example in more details:
Collaborative automation
between water networks and
virtual energy market
4
Energy cost is a challenge for water
distribution companies
Water networks offer good
opportunities for virtual energy
market
Water is easier to store than
electricity and water utilities
can turn it into cash
Technical enablers are necessary
 Decision making tool ensuring that the water demand will
be entirely fulfilled, evaluating the economic equation, and
providing the best strategy to maximize benefits
 Control system
A typical use case example
Automatic calculation of
modulation capabilities for 24
coming hours
Based on:
 Previsional pumping plan
 Water demand and operational constraints
 Energy prices dynamic context
What-if scenarios and decision
For each potential modulation, the water
network manager can:
 Preview the pumping scheduling, tanks
storage and pressure levels
 Select the modulation offers to be sent to
aggregator
Transaction with aggegator
When the energy
demand resource will
be required, the
updated pumping plan
will be sent to
operation system
Main technical bricks
On the water network side
 Water hydraulic simulation (Aquis simulation)
 Water demand forecast
 Modulation capabilities calculation (Artelys optimization)
Coming from aggregator
 Transaction module
 Energy prices
Technical point of view
Arrowhead technology for bricks
interoperability
Water demonstration was based on
a simulated environment
 Extracted from the distribution network of Birkerod
(small town in Denmark)
10 to 15% cost savings
expectations for the demo case
Results and Take away
 Hypothesis: intraday capacity market contract
 For other cases, benefits will greatly depend on water
network characteristics and energy market
More generally, some key success
factors for new features based on
analytics:
 Technical infrastructures for easy data sharing
 Services for interoperability between heterogeneous
bricks
 Good interfaces, understanding and interaction with
people
 And an evidence not to forget: the final added value!
