Abstract [en]

This paper presents a project with a purpose to develop an energy process simulator with a Web-based interface. The advantage with a Web-based interface is that the user can access simulation tools with only a Web browser. The cost for any organisation would also be reduced due to smaller fees and less maintenance time as only a central server needs to be updated. The system architecture has been divided into three major parts; Graphical User Interface (GUI), storage of data and calculating applications. This object-oriented design has shown to be very useful due to its high flexibility. Two different pplications are described in the paper; one energy model used to simulate an energy process and one system with remote electricity data collection (both power and energy) and processing, both displaying the results in a Web-based GUI. The two applications have recently been evaluated with a promising result and will therefore form the basis for future research projects.

Abstract [en]

The reduction of the impact of energy consumption is a priority issue and a major challenge that concerns every country in the world. This is a complex task that needs to be tackled from several angles in the search for areas where optimizations and savings can be made. In Sweden an electricity meter reading reform was fully implemented by 1st July 2009, including 5.2 million customers, and this created new set of circumstances in the Swedish electricity market. The main purpose of this thesis work has been to investigate the possibilities of increasing the use of remote meter readings. Two research questions have been: “How can the electricity market benefit from remote collected meter readings?” and “Where do barriers appear when utilizing meter readings?”. The work started in 2000/2001 to study Internet based applications that visualize electricity consumption patterns. Over these years the daily internet users have increased from approximately 40 % to 73 % and new markets for web-based applications have evolved. These solutions can be important in the forthcoming years as energy portals that hold new energy services. Experiences from new installations indicate that at least interested customers do submit information concerning building and household properties through internet. Still, it is challenging to enable the majority of customers to take part in these new solutions. It may therefore be important to remind customers on a regular basis in order maintain the frequency using the application and to make it habitual. Further the introduction of demand-based pricing allows electricity distribution utilities to achieve a stronger correlation between peak loads in the distribution network area and their revenues.
