VIJAYAWADA: The Andhra Pradesh energy department is contemplating the introduction of Internet of Things (IoT) enabled power control devices in micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) after the lockdown. The IoT-based devices will reportedly improve the performance of MSMEs by reducing energy consumption that will make such units both profitable and sustainable.
Andhra Pradesh State Energy Conservation Mission (APSECM) recently entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Union ministry of commerce and industry-led National Productivity Council (NPC) to introduce IoT-based devices in MSME units.
The NPC has developed these IoT-based devices in association with the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Hyderabad and demonstrated the functioning of these devices in real time. The devices were deployed in two MSME units in Rajahmundry as part of a pilot project. The results have been beyond satisfactory, say officials. The IoT-enabled device supports real-time monitoring of various electrical parameters and sends information to the cloud. The cloud then generates useful alerts to consumers via mobile or e-mail.
The information allows consumers to conduct reactive and proactive maintenance of electric supply within the plant thereby allowing them to avoid excessive energy consumption, protect industrial machinery from voltage fluctuations and save on money.
Energy minister Balineni Srinivas Reddy, while speaking to energy department officials in a teleconference on Sunday, discussed the benefits of IoT-enabled devices.
