Platform overview

The Yalantis Predictive ML Model based on machine learning algorithms is customizable and easy to integrate. It’s focused on supporting businesses with quick and efficient data processing, enabling predictive analytics, and facilitating industrial equipment maintenance in various industries. Primarily, it supports energy consumption optimization, but it can easily be adjusted to meet other business needs. The model can function on its own or be integrated with larger systems already used by businesses to monitor energy consumption of industrial equipment or across premises.

Common challenges addressed by the Yalantis Predictive ML Model

Based on our experience working on IoT solutions in multiple industries, we know that implementing a data-driven environment for energy consumption monitoring and management entails a multi-stage process of working with IoT data. This includes enabling different flows for gathering, pre-processing, processing, storing, analyzing, and visualizing energy consumption data — not to mention that everything should be done in real time. Decisions based on this data need to be relevant and justified. Unfortunately, this process presents businesses with the following challenges:

  • A cumbersome process of gaining control over complicated energy-consuming systems  
  • Inability to accurately plan regular industrial equipment maintenance, updates, and remote troubleshooting to ensure consistent operation
  • Suboptimal energy generation and distribution due to an inability to make data-driven decisions
  • Technical incapacity to obtain crucial information about excessive energy consumption on time and localize a problem
  • Absence of proper energy consumption forecasting, leading to inaccurate budget planning and allocation
  • Inability to identify opportunities for demand response programs and balancing system load
  • Low visibility of energy consumption in industrial patterns that prevent predictive analytics

Benefits of the ML Predictive Model allowing optimization of resource use and improvement of solution performance

  • 01

    Optimized resource consumption. The Yalantis Predictive ML Model aims to optimize energy consumption by analyzing real-time data from IoT devices installed across premises and equipment.

  • 02

    Reduced downtime and improved overall operational efficiency. By analyzing real-time data within seconds, the model can easily identify anomalies in energy consumption and promptly notify administrators. This enables timely responses to warnings and helps prevent downtime.

  • 03

    70% simplified data processing and analysis flow enabled by the data training model. The Yalantis Predictive Model supports the processing of gigabytes of data from various sources, such as sensors, applications, or any other data-producing systems. The Yanaltis ML model for quick data analysis and anomaly recognition signals incoming issues and enables users to make data-driven decisions on the spot.

  • 04

    Reduced maintenance costs. Anomaly detection enabled by the ML model allows businesses to instantly detect dangerous or abnormal equipment or system behavior. Managers and administrators can then localize and address issues before they affect other parts of the system. This results in reduced maintenance costs, as businesses only need to repair specific areas instead of the entire system.

  • 05

    Accurate load forecasting. Machine learning models can analyze historical data to forecast future load patterns, enabling utilities to optimize resource generation and distribution.

  • 06

    Advanced risk mitigation. The ML model, with the capability to process large volumes of data in minimal time, helps identify potential risks and uncertainties, significantly reducing the possibility of serious issues and discrepancies in work.

Functionality enabling and speeding up advanced operations with IoT data

The Yalantis Predictive Model offers the following functionality:

  • Energy consumption forecasting. The Yalantis Predictive Model enables predictive maintenance in energy consumption management by processing real-time data gathered from IoT sensors. ML algorithms analyze available information, identifying trends and patterns, and generate predictions about future consumption.
  • Anomaly detection. The ML model is trained to detect energy consumption anomalies. Thus, it will detect any anomalies relative to the system’s normal operation. These may include critical incidents, such as technical glitches, or potential disruptions to equipment functionality. 
  • Notification center. When the algorithms detect anomalous energy consumption, managers and administrators get notified about this by the system so they can make decisions regarding further equipment operation.
  • Advanced data analysis and interpretation. The ML model can recognize complex patterns and correlations that might be difficult for humans to identify. In terms of data interpretation, this model is able to summarize data into meaningful insights. For example, it can generate summaries or highlight key trends.
  • Integration with the Yalantis IoT Accelerator for sophisticated data visualization. The ML model is designed for easy integration with the Yalantis IoT Accelerator and other systems that businesses exploit. This enables comprehensive data visualization with dashboards and exhaustive reports.
