Advanced Scripts functions allow you to organize interval data from any meter, production counter, or weather station by day of the week, day of month, weekend/weekdays, or month of year, and show maximums, minimums, averages, consumption, and load factor.
You can perform a multi-variable regression analysis to compare production, counter, and/or weather data against metered utility data. You can then produce predictor equations to determine future energy usage. EnergyCAP Enterprise can determine when (and how far) a data point is out of the ordinary for a typical day. For example, you can see peak times of energy usage and compare them with weather station data or minimize your load by separating weekends and holidays and recalculating usage accordingly.
If you are familiar with Visual Basic scripting, you can modify the analysis scripts for your site- or task-specific needs and then copy/save these scripts for use at a later time. You can also save the scripts generated for often-repeated analysis tasks. For example, if you run a weekly general summary data analysis that generates information about the previous week’s activities for a particular meter or set of meters, you can define a script to do so, then simply load and run it when needed.
The Advanced Scripts workspace consists of three tabs:
The Output tab displays a report-like format of the requested data. You can copy or print the analysis data.
The Script tab displays the script (code) used to generate the analysis (see EnergyCAP Enterprise Script Reference). You can copy or print the analysis script.
