The basis and foundation of all of IoT Energy’s Smart Solutions are the Wireless Sensor or the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN), which consists of independent disseminated sensors to monitor physical or environmental conditions such as temperature, sound, pressure, humidity, motion, or pollutants. These sensors are interconnected and cooperatively pass the gathered data through networks to the primary location, the base station, and enables the integration of several technologies and communications solutions.
IoT Energy then introduces Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) as one of the key enablers for the Internet of Things (IoT) where the Wireless Sensor WSN plays a significant role in the future of the Internet of Things by collecting surrounding situation and environment information. Furthermore, it plays a primary role in the success of the power grid, which is an important part of the electric power industry and energy sustainability as the demand for reliability and quality of the power grid continues to increase in the world.
Impact of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN)
- Online monitoring system
- The condition of transmission lines are directly affected by natural forces while industrial and agricultural pollution are also a direct threat to the safe operation of transmission lines. Automated monitoring of transmission lines ensures efficiency and precision of information such as a quick alarm dispatch upon the occurrence of accidents, and strategy adjustment according to the operation mode, resulting in an early and isolated problem case and minimizing casualties.
- Communications are dependent on transmission lines and WSN’s excellent ability to adapt to harsh environments, large area coverage, self-configuration and substantial utility independence. WSN or Wireless Sensor Networks are ideal for data communication monitoring systems that can send timely warnings of disasters, rapidly locate the positions of faults, sense transmission line failures, shorten the time of fault recovery and improve the reliability of the power supply.
- Smart Grid Technology
- Energy consumption necessitates a reliable power grid and modern management based on smart meters, high-efficiency control, high-speed communication, and quick energy storage technology, to realize the real-time interaction between power networks. WSN have the ability to use its sensors to form a complete interactive network for electric energy consumption information and can adjust the electricity consumption style depending on the consumer, thereby achieving the best configuration of power resources, and reducing electrical supply expenses.
- Smart Transportation
- The wireless sensors, using Smart devices, can monitor people’s interaction with traffic flow, resulting in an efficient dispatch of help and information.
- Sensing Traffic Flow
- City Information
- Traffic Infrastructures
The Wireless Sensor WSN provides efficiency, security, reliability, and interactivity to open doors for new applications and integration of various Smart Sectors. Therefore, it is necessary in order ffor the smart grid and other smart solutions to reach full potential. The idea behind IoT Energy’s Smart Solutions such as the Smart Grid Technology is that the network can respond to real-time demand, and this can only be achieved if the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) provide real-time information and data using the “smart sensing external information” and IP-based networks.
