Case Study Title: Installation of a Temperature Controlled Warehouse

To examine the potential energy saving achieved by a retrofit of existing equipment in a temperature controlled warehouse using the latest plant and equipment innovations. To identify further energy saving opportunities and to redesign the evaporating system using Siemens Simatic PLC and HMI in order to provide system optimisation and visualisation.

During the six months I have spent working on my FYP, I have improved my technical research and documentation skills and developed my PLC programming and control design competencies. This will enable my company to produce a wider range of control solutions for customised applications to our clients into the future.
