CIRCUTOR solutions certified according to the UNE217001-IN standard for 0 grid injection

The CDP product family (CDP-0, CDP-G and CDP-DUO) and the CirPower Hybrid 4k-48 have been certified according to the UNE217001-IN standard, which stipulates that controllers designed to prevent injection to the grid must be capable of regulating the output power of the inverters in less than 2 seconds.

This distinction is yet another step in CIRCUTOR's commitment to providing technical solutions and it recognises the excellence of its products, whose controllers are the first to receive this certification through an accredited body such as CERES. This consolidates CIRCUTOR's position as a leader in the field of 0 injection in Spain, where it is the only company to date to have obtained this certification for its products that prevent injection into the grid.

In recent years, CIRCUTOR has gradually introduced a number of solutions that ensure the control and efficiency of self-consumption installations, tailored to the needs of each type of installation. The first system to be launched was the dynamic power controller (CDP-0) that prevented injection to the grid and made it far easier to obtain legal authorisation for self-consumption installations.

Then the dynamic power controller with demand management (CDP-G) was launched, optimising the production of self-consumption installations and managing non-critical loads to use the surplus energy from PV energy installations. CIRCUTOR's latest innovation comes in the form of the dynamic power controller with dual configuration of injection to grid parameters (CDP-DUO), capable of automatically switching the injection parameters according to the type of grid present (grid-diesel generator set). All of the aforementioned controllers have obtained the UNE217001-IN certification.

As well as certifying its controllers, CIRCUTOR wanted to go one step further and has also certified the first grid-tie hybrid inverter capable of meeting the standard's most stringent requirements. This certification makes the CirPower Hybrid 4k-48 a unique inverter in its class.

CirBEON. Optimal solution for domestic charging of electric vehicles

 

When you are charging an electric vehicle your domestic electrical installation will consume more energy and, sometimes, this may cause supply interruptions and force you to upgrade your electrical installation to avoid exceeding the contracted power.

The new eHome CirBEON intelligent system is the latest advance in electric vehicle charging, allowing you to leave your vehicle charging and carry on using electrical appliances and other loads as normal, without having to worry about a thing.

eHome CirBEON dynamically adjusts the electric vehicle's consumption, according to the installation's maximum total consumption and allocates the power available at each moment to the electric vehicle, taking advantage of periods of low consumption by allocating more power to charge the electric vehicle. This avoids any interruptions to the electrical supply and there is no need to increase the contracted power of your home.

Trends in the energy efficiency 2017

What are the trends in the energy efficiency sector for 2017

Still not up-to-date on the latest trends in energy efficiency? We are well into 2017 now, three years ahead of the target: 2020, but there are still people who have not had the chance to learn about the 20/20/20 commitment established by the European Union. What is the "20/20/20" commitment? In a nutshell, it is a commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 20%, reduce energy consumption by 20% through greater energy efficiency and, finally, promote the use of renewable energies until it reaches 20%.

Many companies around the world are developing new technologies in order to mitigate climate change and between all, create a sustainable future. Therefore, in honour of Sunday 5 March, World Energy Efficiency Day, CIRCUTOR is presenting you with the energy efficiency trends that are having the biggest impact in 2017.

 

BIG DATA. The classic "information is power"

BIG DATA. The classic “information is power”.

We are living in the AGE of information and communication, long gone are the days when you had to rely on endless books or paper records in order to look something up. A huge amount of data, of every kind, is now uploaded to the internet. With so much information around, the Big Data approach consists of recording as much information as possible and then processing it so that it can be analysed and acted upon accordingly. But what does Big Data have to do with Energy Efficiency?

With the technological advances in energy analysis; companies, utilities, businesses and homes now have, or could have, complete information about their consumption and its behaviour. In the past, we only had access to the figures that appeared on our electricity bills, now, with the new telemanagement systems and wireless consumption analyzers, we know instantly how much energy we are consuming. New technologies are therefore being developed that apply the Big Data approach, enabling us to perform an energy analysis with the aim of reducing consumption, thus improving energy efficiency.

 

Smart Cities. Cities that run themselves

Smart Cities. Cities that run themselves

Tokyo, New York, Zurich and Paris are leading the way as Smart Cities. Cities where they invest significant amounts in information and communications technology, where all data are logged, or changes or issues are managed remotely and instantly. The aim is to study the behaviour of the city so that its infrastructures can be improved.

As far as energy is concerned, the public authorities and utilities use telemanagement systems to collect consumption data from users and use this to generate an energy demand curve, thus increasing energy savings. There are also smart remote control systems, used for street lights, for example. Thanks to these, the amounts spent on electric energy consumption by the cities and towns in which we live are reduced.

 

Distributed generation in Smart Cities

Distributed generation in Smart Cities

For there to be a shift towards energy efficiency, it will be necessary to move from centralised generation to distributed generation. Up until now, electricity has been generated in power plants and transmitted to cities along high-voltage lines.

Distributed generation is a key part of a Smart City and it consists of generating electrical energy in the very point where it is going to be consumed. This term is also known as decentralised or in situ generation. By generating and consuming at nearby points you reduce transmission losses, while improving the management and quality of the grid.

So, in cities like those previously mentioned, it is common to see buildings with sets of photovoltaic panels connected to storage batteries.

 

The electric vehicle, a reality today

The electric vehicle, a reality today

The introduction of electric vehicles represents a massive shift away from mobility as we have known it until now. It not only offers numerous advantages, such as a reduction in air and noise pollution, better air quality in cities, reduced energy dependency, etc., but it also enables the use of electric energy management systems, which in turn enable smart charging, thus improving the overall efficiency of the electrical system.

Smart charging in off-peak hours allows you to flatten the demand curve, so the energy impact and cost are minimal as this occurs during the hours of least consumption. The situation can be further improved, where possible, by integrating the system with renewable energy projects.

Another of the benefits of integrating electric vehicles (EV) in cities is the energy storage function. At times of maximum demand, the EV could deliver energy back to the grid if necessary, thus optimising power generation infrastructures and electrical networks.

 

Electric energy management from your mobile

Electric energy management from your mobile

As we have seen above, Big Data is becoming an essential system for the energy control of facilities and homes. In recent years, various applications have emerged for mobile devices that allow you to take control of facilities and obtain information about how, where and when you are consuming energy.

In 2017, these applications will have to evolve so that they not only provide data, but also guide users in making decisions and adjusting their consumption through the data displayed on their wireless terminals, automatically helping them to determine how they are consuming energy. This will allow a user to know if their contract with the utility suits their actual needs and if not, they could then switch to one that benefits them financially.

In the future, these applications will connect users to their homes and facilities so that, even when they are not there, they can check any real-time data and even report any incidents that might increase their costs at the end of the month.

 


In short, this is just a brief summary of some of the biggest trends for this year in the electrical energy efficiency sector. The sector is moving towards information control and management, as well as improving how we use the energy at our disposal, and at CIRCUTOR, we invest time and money every day to play our part in these improvements.
