1 Analytics Software for Energy Management and Building Systems Optimization and Equipment Fault DetectionDecember 2011
2 Data is the Driver How can we turn the data into useful information? We now have access to data… lots of it!Building automation system dataUtility dataMetering dataEquipment/asset dataIP/web connected automation systems and smart devicesStandard protocolsStandard data formatsHow can we turn the data into useful information?Hidden in this data are the keys to better building performance
3 (quickly, easily, efficiently, automatically) The challenge…Find what matters……To You(quickly, easily, efficiently, automatically)
4 That’s What SkySpark Does Software that automatically looks for “issues” – we call them sparksAcross a wide range of data with different sources and formatsProcesses rules to generate sparksEasily add new rules without re-programming controllersThe result: Turn operational data into actionable issues with minimal intervention!
5 What Customers are Saying “Dashboards are great but – I need someone to tell me when I should look at a dashboard – tell me when there is something important that deserves my attention”“as if I had an experienced mechanical engineer constantly reviewing system operation to find issues – which is simply not sustainable or scalable”
6 Examples of Issues Real Owners Find Things That Matter Simultaneous heating and cooling in a single unit or across groups, short cycling, lack of diversity controlDeviation of energy intensity (kw/sq ft/degree day) from benchmarks, baselines, goals along with time, duration and costDegradation of cooling or heating performance (i.e., unit runs but does not deliver expected cooling/heating)Economizers open while heating and coolingNon-functioning sensors (temp, kw, etc)Lights or other loads operating when they shouldn’tSetpoints overridden and not changing with schedules as expectedWhat matters to you?
7 The Old Way A very manual process View graphics of equipment systemsReview reports or history logsAlarms…need to understand the issue when programming systemsingle variable - single point in timesimple limit-based relationships – many systems not capable of complex alarm logicImport data into Excel for manual analysisNo single tool that works across all kinds of dataHow do you do this today?
8 Thinking about “it” in a new way Business Intelligence software for the physical world of building, energy and equipment data
9 SkySpark Rethink how you organize data Rethink how you visualize data Rethink how you analyze dataRethink how you consume the result
10 Three Steps Bring data into SkySpark BAS data Facility data Utility dataWeather dataProduction data
11 Step 2Give the data meaning via “tags” No need to maintain rigid schemas – add tags whenever you wantDimensionsRelationshipsLocationOther meaning and descriptors
12 Step 3 Rules and “Sparks” Choose or define rules to find exactly what matters to youSample rule:dis: Simultaneous Heating and Cooling (the text we will display)ruleOn: ahu (this is the tag the rule will work on)ruleFunc: hisPeriodIntersection([heat, cool]) (this is the rule expression)The result – a sample “spark’:2010-Oct-03 | Zone Temp Too Hot | Floor-2 Zone-AAnd SkySpark automatically generates views to show the issue!
13 The Result: Know what your systems are really doing Automatically scans your data to find what matters Automatically generates views on issues detected Identify an issue once – SkySpark finds it forever Build up libraries of analytic rules to fit your facility needs Convert your domain knowledge to rules – your value continues to buildThe “Spark detail” page – shows everything related to the occurrence of an issue
15 SkySpark Organize Folio tags Visualize Fresco html5 Apps Analyze Axon 3 core components plus open API’s for integration with third party applicationsOrganizeFoliotagsVisualizeFrescohtml5AppsAnalyzeAxonfunctions
16 ArchitectureRuns on Windows, Mac and Linux from laptop to Amazon CloudUse as an end-to-end product or as a backend DB/analytics engineYou can extend the product by building your own Apps inside it, or by integrating it with your external AppsSkyFoundry Apps
17 A Deeper Look at SkySpark Applications and Tools Demonstration
18 The Site Spark App – User’s Dashboard to Review and Investigate Sparks Spark Detail ViewSimply click on a spark notification to get an automatically generated view of relevant data items
19 The Energy App – The Essential Energy Reports in One Simple Tool Consumption, demand, runtime, rank and exception reports. Normalize by area, degree days and user defined parameters
20 The KPI App – Presentation of Key Performance Metrics You can define virtually any KPI you want to display
21 The Site App – Easy Navigation of all of Your Data The Site App automatically creates navigation without any additional programming –It interprets tags to automatically create a comprehensive navigation treeExplore any points across any time range
22 The History App – Ad Hoc Analysis – Chart any Type of Data Choose data items to be charted and time period
23 The Report App – Save any View or Query as a Standard Report for Single Click Operation
24 The Folio App – Directly Query the Database, Add Tags, Explore Relationships
25 Folio - Function Editor – Write Rules to Analyze Data and Generate Sparks SkySpark includes a comprehensive library of analytic functions to build rules from as well as a set of standard rules to find virtually any type of fault or operational condition
26 The Spark App – Review, Sort and Export Spark Data, Set up Sparks
27 The Weather App – Look Specifically at Weather Data Look at current conditions, forecast, history, and degree days
29 SkySpark Value Proposition Identify the data that matters to youTurn your operational data into actionable issues easily and efficientlyRules and sparks allow you to completely rethink how you create value from operational dataTransform domain knowledge into analytic rules that automatically “watch” your facilitiesImprove operation and energy efficiency by identifying faults, and issues worthy of attention
30 Applications End use application for facility/energy managers Backend database and analytics engine for third party HMI offeringsIn house tool for consultants involved in commissioning/energy analysisAnd, SkySpark is sold as licensed software – install it on a local PC or server, or host it in your own cloud. SkyFoundry never has your data – you’re in control
31 SkyFoundry Business Model Enterprise software model A partner - focused software companyWe focus on creating software tools that enable domain experts to leverage knowledge and help customers improve facility operationsResellers provide implementation services to end customersImplementation services provided by VARs include:Data integration, importing and “tagging”Developing analytic rulesBuilding custom visualizationsChannel training/on-going support servicesDeveloping or integrating with complimentary applications
