This application allows the user to monitor the consumption of each electrical device in the household separately, without installation of any supplementary metering devices.
Consumer Identification Application Interface
Integrated into the IMEON OS. ONE operating system, the “Consumer Identification” is an innovative application developed by IMEON ENERGY and accessible free of charge to owners of an Imeon hybrid inverter.
The innovation lies in the fact that this analysis is provided without the need to install specific sensors for each device, using Imeon to detect the unique electrical signature of the appliance. Each electronic load, when powered by an AC source creates a specific harmonic distortion of the AC waveform. The distortion can be detected and used to identify the particular appliance when it is switched on. Thanks to the use of this technique and without the need to add any hardware components, the Imeon inverters can now detect, measure and register not only the global electricity consumption of the installation site, but also the consumption of individual appliances.
The information can be extremely useful for owners planning on creating more energy efficient households, since it allows them to identify the appliances which consume the most power, to consider an upgrade or a replacement. Furthermore, the information concerning energy consumption of a particular device can influence the habits of its owner. If for instance a standby consumption of a TV amounts to a non-negligible value over a course of a month, the user may decide that it’s more interesting to switch it off completely.
Thanks to the “Consumer Identification” feature the household owners can become more conscious of their energy consumption patterns and achieve the energy autonomy with ease.
Much more than a manufacturer of solar hybrid inverters, IMEON ENERGY is constantly developing new software applications and working on projects related to artificial intelligence in order to improve the performance of its solutions and the satisfaction of owners of IMEON hybrid inverters.
