Intelligent public lighting control system for smart cities
Netico offers a complete end-to-end solution which allows cities to monitor and control public lighting easily, from one place, helping in reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emission. Additionally, the solution enables maintenance planning and cost reduction by real-time detection of various malfunctions.
Netico advanced lighting control system integrates necessary hardware and software components in a modular way, so it is flexible and adaptable to any customer and project requirements.
• NTLC – Netico smart energy sensor loaded with specifically designed firmware for lighting control
• Complete telecommunication infrastructure necessary for integration
• Backup battery power to ensure uninterrupted operation
Software components - ALCS application based on the Netico Hive platform
• Collects measurements and alarms from the NTLC sensor
• Stores collected data into the time-series database
• Provides a Web-based user interface
• Facilitates a built in API for interfacing GIS systems
NTLC – Netico Light control energy sensor
Installed at feeders which bring power to the street light infrastructure, NTLC measures a number of electrical parameters including currents, line voltages, frequency, active and reactive power, power factor, current and voltage harmonics (up to 31st harmonic), etc. All measured parameters are stored locally on the sensor device for up to 5 years with the aggregate resolution of 5 minutes. The system uses stored data to perform advanced analytic sand provide better insight into trends, reduce energy consumption and increase the reliability of the overall public lighting grid.
