The automation system is an integral
part of the anaerobic digestion system. This system allows remote
operation and monitoring by anyone with an internet connection. The
automation system allows the operator to view and control any of the
processes associated with the digester including the engine/generator
and solids separator system.
The system is also capable of
automatically notifying the operator in case of an alarm. The system
will take the necessary corrective action in an attempt to correct the
alarming condition. If this alarm is not able to be corrected by the
system, the operator is notified of the fault needing correction and the
proper personnel can be dispatched with the tools an parts necessary to
correct the condition.
The automation system also collects
the operational data of the system. This information can be viewed on
the control screens in numerous formats. The system also automatically
generates a weekly operational summary which provides key parameters
such as the amount of biogas produced, the amount of electricity
produced, the volume of manure processed, and the uptime of the system.
The automation system is also capable
of incorporating additional processing systems that may compliment the
digestion process. These systems can be integrated through a
communication card and allow the operator to view all the systems
through one interface.
