PC-Control: Music festival keeps the party going using green energy
Embedded PC controls local smart power grid
The Pukkelpop Festival in Belgium has long focused on environmental sustainability. For the summer 2015 event, the organizers managed to cover their power needs with locally generated, sustainable energy. Solar panels provided the main power source, coupled with two small wind power systems and batteries for backup. This green system featured a Beckhoff Embedded PC and EtherCAT I/O to monitor the availability of the power supply as well as the overall power consumption. The project was implemented by Belgium's UC Leuven Limburg University (UCLL), which will continue to analyze the data, examining the power quality of stand-alone green energy systems.
