A future-proof power solution is low-emission, renewable and smart, it requires an IoT system that processes data in real-time. The data generated by providers, traders, and consumers are transferred and analyzed in the same smart grid empowered by IoT, and the potential of information is fully released.
Power Grid becomes more complex with the boom of renewable energy. A more decentralized and miniaturized grid needs a unified way to collect and process data. Based on the data, power production and transmission are regulated and balanced, and the usability of the grid is optimized and secured.
Consumers are now more price-sensitive and environmentally aware; The new technologies make a traditional power consumer now a prosumer. These changes bring new business, IoT systems that efficiently process massive data are the key to the success of new businesses..
Power grid is one of the oldest industrial infrastructure systems. A huge amount of legacy systems using different protocols are existing in the grid, and they will exist with new systems for a long time. A smart grid must be compatible with legacy systems. EMQ’s solution not only supports the new IoT or internet protocols, such as MQTT, LwM2M, CoAP, and HTTP, it also provides support of standards used in power systems, such as IEC104, IEC61850, and DL/T698.45. It provides a unified interconnection solution for the power industry.
The amount of equipment in the power industry is huge, for example, the massive quantity of electricity meter equipment, which requires the platform to provide concurrent connection capabilities to this massive amount of equipment. The high-concurrency and high-throughput access capability of EMQ provides a stable connection guarantee for a large number of devices to be connected simultaneously.
The power grid is one of the most important infrastructures in our society. It requires a very high available and stable management platform. EMQ is based on the Erlang/OTP framework, a distributed high-availability cluster architecture used in many infrastructure systems. It supports hot-update and hot configuration which provides the availability and stability required by Grid.
Smart grid management platforms require a unified way to operate the end devices, the network, and the consumer and backend applications. This achieves the normalization of data access and provides standardized data interfaces for data processing and distributing. EMQ’s built-in rule engine flexibly connects diverse applications and bridges data to databases and message queues, providing more architectural options for the applications.
EMQ’s solution is compatible with power industry standards and IoT protocols, and realizes unified data access for the smart grid.
EMQ’s solution provides high performance, high availability, and high concurrency. It supports the power grid running under heavy load with massive devices and applications connected.
The rule engine enables the extending and innovation of business models and ensures the rapid new business implementation on data platforms.
EMQ’s solution processes and distributes data both on the edge and on the cloud. It can fit into diverse use cases, making it possible to build a smart grid with IoT technologies everywhere and for everyone.
