The goal of the project is to aid the university in developing away to monitor the power consumption, and to help improve on power consumption during peek demand hours.

Problem Definition[edit]

Background[edit]

Like most commercial customers our University is spending thousands of dollars every month for electricity. But do we really understand how the costs breakdown – and what if anything we can do to keep paying more than we have to?

Deliverables[edit]

1: Research how to decrease the demand charge of the university

2A: Set up SEL 735 relays to moniter the power coming into the university

2B: Create a dashboard that is accessible to view the power coming into the university

Value Proposition[edit]

By looking into the University of Idaho’s historical and transient energy usage, we are to help decrease the demand charge of the university to save up to $60,000 annually. This is accomplished through the installation of SEL-735 relays to read transient power flow, analyzing this data, and researching means of avoiding new peak demands using this transient data.​
