can I measure the electricity consumption in Simio

Recommended Posts

I'm working on a project and I want to know if there is any way to measure the electricity consumption in a process. I want to know how many Kilowatt can a machine consume in hour.



Thank you

You can set up a level variable and then add a positive rate when it is in use. See e.g. SimBit called Electric Vehicle.

 

The example shows the consumption on electric vehicles. I want to measure the electric consumption in server when the machine is running and ideal.


What do you mean to set up a let variable?

The suggestion to look at the SimBit called Electric Vehicle was a good one. You can follow a similar approach to measure electric consumption on any object. I suggest you read the help topic on Level states and the description on that SimBit.

Is it possible to put a charging station on multiple nodes? and How? In other words, how to formulate or edit the process so that the electric vehicle can be charged at multiple places.

There are many ways to do this. In that same SimBit, if you look into the definition of MyVehicle, near the bottom you will find a process named StartChargingBattery. One way is to simply change the properties of that Decide step.
