Control technology for district heating with SiMon

SiMon Energy management Software

Equipped with Artificial Intelligence (AI)

SiMon is a freely programmable software which takes over tasks such as intelligent energy monitoring and energy analysis.  It can record any number of data points in real time (neural network). The main feature is the integrated, self-learning optimization function, based on artificial intelligence. Data from the past are analysed in order to derive generation strategies for the future supplemented with forecast data. In combination with integrated function modules, such as weather forecasts or calculations of the sun's position, the economic efficiency of a local heating network or the heating system of a larger building can be significantly optimised. This software is used in the administration and control of complex tasks.

Possible tasks SiMon can take over:

  • Data management: Capturing any data sources in real time, archiving in databases, evaluation of historical data, connection to cloud data
  • Monitoring: Permanent monitoring of incoming data, recognition of fault messages and errors, automatic data analysis to determine deviations, information by e-mail, SMS, etc.
  • Visualization: Representation of any processes and data, evaluation and availability of historical data, configuration of any graphical user interfaces.
  • Control: Event-oriented control, control of any IO components, mapping of any number of logic and mathematical functions, administration of any macros.
  • Optimization: Evaluation of collected data using self-learning algorithms (artificial intelligence), intelligent control of connected components.
  • Data export: collection and provision of data (e.g. as a basis for energy audits, etc.)
