Development of the scale experimental model, taking into account the scalability of the assembly, comprised of the minimum required for energizing:
– wind turbine
– 2 photovoltaic panels
– gasoline generator
– inverter, charge controller, batteries for energy storage, control panel
For this version, considered as the minimum energy version, in order to test its functionality and capacity, telecommunication and perimeter surveillance systems and a bio-monitoring system were added.
In this way we could also test the related systems in order to develop an experimental model that exceeds the minimum version in which it can be built.
The experimentation of the subassemblies was done taking into account the scalability of the model. A check of the assembly was performed after checking the components of the system in order to see how the IT solution manages and monitors the entire system.
The initial specifications set describes the functionality of the model and the means to verify and test the degree in which the parameters are fulfilled.
The primary use manual for the system was elaborated in a version that takes into account the ease of use and operation.
The technical feasibility study shows the way in which the constructive versions were established depending on the needs. The chosen version for the experimental model is by far the best option because we can perform the necessary tests for all subassemblies that make up the system in optimal conditions.
A patent application with the title “A method and a way to create a autonomous container modular system with renewable energy, communications and perimeter and medical monitoring for calamity victim camps and other island installations” was filed with OSIM in order to protect the industrial property rights
With the experience gained in the research, design and implementation of the experimental model phase we can begin preparing a study to assess the system performance both from a technical standpoint, and especially in terms of potential clients.
For this purpose a questionnaire was prepared covering all the customer categories in terms of the constructive versions.
The technical documentation was elaborated for the subassemblies considering both the electric and electronic modules, as well as the mechanical components that go into the system.
The intermediary specification set was elaborated taking into account the experience gained with the model and the specific requirements of the final product.
The created SIGHAB experimental model is designed to integrate in a SCADA type monitoring and control system, which together with IT management, offers the majority of technical services necessary for a modern camp or island installation that provides an uninterruptible power source, supplied with renewable energy, but also with the ability to work with an electric generator and the local electric grid when it is available.
Besides this feature of energizing the system other wired or wireless voice and data facilities, as well as satellite, a perimeter monitoring with perimeter sensors and a closed TV circuit, a vital parameter (ECG, physical position, oximetry, temperature, respiratory rate) monitoring subsystem for the health surveillance of camp staff and a auxiliary equipment subsystem for perimeter lighting and water pumping and filtration. All this is controlled by an IT management system equipped with SCADA.
To ensure maximum system versatility, it is modular, based on a naval shipping metal container that can be easily transported by road and consists of the following subsystems: energy, communications, perimeter monitoring, vital parameter monitoring, auxiliary equipment and IT management.
