Are there ways to use the PI System to help reduce summer peak?
There's a lot of things PI can do for you.
From my standpoint, with PI you can see the variations to the Peak demand.
With about 2-3 years worth of data, you can see the daily fluctuations caused by various factors including weather and time of the year. Thus, you can create a model with the historical data to determine the effects of seasons on the daily electricity generation requirements.
With this model, you can predict that expected peak which will allow you to reduce the Peak demand since you have a more accurate model to your generation needs.
That should help get you get started. Please feel free to ask any additional questions you may have.
