GenPilot is genset remote monitoring software that has been developed specifically for suppliers to the Capacity Market. It allows you to monitor and control diesel and/or gas genset fleets in remote locations. It gives you the opportunity to maximise the revenue and lower operating costs on genset farms.
This software provides the operator with a powerful set of tools and analytics for managing multiple sites that supply to the Capacity Market.
Engine and generator parameters and a wide range of alarm functions are instantly displayed on GenPilot’s dashboard. Fuel consumption, engine temperatures and pressures and engine output and performance can be measured.
The software provides fingertip control of the start/stop of the genset and mode changes between STOR, FFR etc.
The software also enables the resetting of individual gensets or multiple genset site alarms. This reset can either be manual or automated with the latter providing the fastest possible reconnection of gensets, getting them back online quickly. The software allows you to choose which faults cannot be reset, so you can’t clear an alarm that would permit a major failure.
GenPilot software will also assist in the prevention of fuel theft. If fuel suddenly ‘disappears’, if consumption increases or even if fuel just drops below a safe level, GenPilot triggers an alarm.
Companies who have bid for, and successfully won power generation contracts from the National Grid will have large sites of gensets across the UK.
They may be operating in different modes, including:
Features within GenPilot will assist with the organisation of large fleets of gensets and the complex reporting required by the National Grid.
