Huawei's Green Energy Solution leverages AI to self-improve operational factors based on real-time load conditions
SANTA CLARA, California, Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Based on its recent analysis of the global telecom power market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. with the 2018 Global Customer Value Leadership Award for delivering high price-performance value through its unique Green Energy Solution. In addition to offering high operational expenditure (OPEX) savings, the company facilitates the seamless modernization of the network and future proofs telecom sites. Huawei leverages advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to self-adjust operational parameters based on real-time changes in operational conditions and the environment, thereby providing unprecedented customer value enhancement.
"The Huawei Green Energy Solution is based on the decentralization of the smart component in a telecom site, comprising individual smart components, such as smart power, smart cooling, smart battery, smart distributed generation (DG), and smart solar," said Gautham Gnanajothi, Global Research Director. "Green Energy Solution intelligently analyzes Big Data obtained from these smart components and presents actionable and prioritized insights to site operators. Overall, Huawei's Green Energy Solution helps telecom operators improve the efficiency of their networks, reduce costs, and contribute to the sustainable use of resources."
Huawei's smart operation support system (OSS) records and analyzes grid outage parameters and automatically adjusts the battery charge current. Typically, excess solar energy is wasted during low load conditions and when the battery is fully charged, even though the solar array still continues to have high output. Huawei's Green Energy Solution solution addresses this issue by integrating the smart power system with smart OSS records to analyze real-time weather conditions and automatically switch the battery's charging modality.
Reducing the battery charge current during good grid conditions and increasing it during bad grid conditions ensure that the battery has adequate energy to discharge any time a need arises. This capability eliminates any manual intervention and significantly enhances the life of the battery and the overall performance of the system. Huawei's Green Energy Solution and smart OSS are especially relevant when multiple sites simultaneously face downtime. In such situations, Green Energy Solution empowers operators to optimize their site visit sequence by prioritizing visits to sites that are at the highest risk.
"Huawei's use of a highly advanced controller chipset that can perform complex calculations and analyses; smart Li-ion batteries; and wireless sensors, including fuel tank level sensor, temperature sensor, and smoke sensor, has endowed the company with a significant competitive advantage. Because all of the sensors are wireless, the solution offers considerable savings on cable installation and reduces installation complexity," noted Gautham. "Huawei has high potential to strengthen its market position further, with its forward looking, macro-level innovation strategies."
