This project aims to conduct a detailed analysis of the typical electrical infrastructure of a district hospital in Cameroon and to produce a dynamic model of energy needs and consumption. Several energy submeters will be installed in a number of representative hospitals in order to monitor consumption in time per service and per building.
The results will lead to recommendations in improving connections (phase load balancing, appropriate cable diameter and length, earthing, etc.) and in using equipment in a rational manner (avoid unnecessary consumption during power shortages, etc.).
Then, a remote monitoring and automatic control system will be designed to smooth and balance consumption automatically, according to the power available and the importance of consumers (priority given to vital equipment such as lighting in the operating room or the fridge for vaccines).
