The project solves the research and development of a new “ECOGI” product by the company KYBERNETES in Košice, with a high degree of innovation, as a product for a comprehensive solution to an automatic optimization strategy of the use of primary energy sources, which, in the final result, leads to optimization and overall reduction in the consumption of electrical and heat energy in production companies. The ECOGI will integrate online several sources of heat and electrical energy on the basis of consumption demand and will optimize the consumption of energy in a plant. The emphasis will be laid on the maximum use of alternative energy sources in industrial companies, many of which currently have available heterogenous energy sources but they are missing an integrated control system for effective combining of energy equipment with the possibility of energy accumulation and its subsequent use.
The objective of the research and development of the project is an ECOGI device, which will be compact and placed in a single industrial rack. It is a miniaturized product, consisting of three main subsystems: (1) energy production source integrator subsystem, (2) power and control electronics subsystem for bidirectional transfer of electrical energy needed for modern and future SMART companies, and (3) subsystem of optimal model-orientated control of all currently available ecological energy sources on the basis of mathematical methods and artificial intelligence methods. The device will suitably configure and parametrize the energy consumption process, also on the basis of predictions of short-term and medium-term needs of an enterprise.
The innovative idea of the project is to extend the identification of objects in 3D space and automate the selection of an identified object on the basis of a 3D scan and sophisticated algorithms.
The application output of the project is a 3D integrated sensor control, designed in particular for economic practice. The specification of requirements for this device was implemented in cooperation with representatives of the industry.
The company GETRAG FORD Transmissions Slovakia, s.r.o. is currently showing interest in the application output of the project after its completion. This project is in the solution stage.
