Learn about the benefits of a High Availability Power Management System offering easy installation - deployed at a major international airport.
Our Technology Partner
With its extensive electrical system and demanding load profile, the airport needed an advanced & highly available Power Control & Monitoring System for their electrical network to meet their challenging financial and operational goals.
In case of power loss, basic redundancy enables quick recovery of operation, but the loss of data could severely impact the customer's ability to counter-charge tenants. It also creates critical intelligence gaps that hinder maintenance of energy efficiency initiatives.
The airport is a critical site that requires a high granularity data collection rate of less than 30 minutes. As such, the customer asked for a continuous availability solution that prevents system downtime and data loss from happening.
To keep the power monitoring systems up and running continuously, the customer opted for a combination of EcoStruxure Power Monitoring Expert and Stratus everRun Enterprise.
2 Intel® x86 servers running Microsoft® Windows® or Red Hat® Linux® and Microsoft SQL Server.
Over 500 meters and connected devices across electrical switchgear and switchboards.
Servers are synchronized via a virtualization platform that pairs protected virtual machines together to create a single operating environment with full redundancy of all underlying hardware and data. If one physical machine fails, the power monitoring software will continue to run on the other physical machine without any interruptions or data loss.
25 million passengers rely on this High Availability Power Management System for the airport’s downtime-free operation. Benefits include:
Installation without modification to Power Monitoring Expert
Quick single-disc installation and creation of a single operating environment with applications co-existing on two virtual machines
Support center continuously monitors the systems remotely, and automatically sends notifications if a fault should occur
