    Achieving optimum operation of multiple plants

    A long list of mechanical and operational factors impacts on power plant operations. These constraints must be respected, but they make it very difficult to operate multiple plants and effectively match power demand.

    Company-wide optimum operation planning reduces the company's total fuel cost

    A service that analyzes a utility's demand information and the constraints on each power plant to deliver an optimal generation plan that minimizes fuel costs.

    This is a microservice, one of the building blocks of TOSHIBA SPINEX for Energy. See also Related Services below.

    Operations are optimized by use of efficient plants and shutting down unneeded plants

    Total fuel costs are cut by using plants efficiently and shutting down unnecessary ones.

    Thoughts behind the name SPINEX

    SPINE + X

    The spine is our body’s central support structure, our core, home to the spinal cord that radiates nerves throughout or bodies. In the same way as the nervous system allows us to experience the world, edge computing delivers fast decisions in data processing by distributing sensing and control to every point where it is needed.

    Our spine makes us strong and agile. We can do the same for your business, and contribute to society, by providing an essential industrial IoT framework that supports your people and operations with fast, appropriate on-site processing.

    The X of SPINEX represents eXperience and  eXpansion, and the crossover with other value creators and services. This is how we will create the future with TOSHIBA SPINEX Services.

    Two pillars of the Toshiba IoT Reference Architecture compliance standard

    APIThe service is an open interface, not closed on itself, an architecture that enables third parties to safely create value.
    SecurityThe service implements system security that meets global standards. We can provide customers with all the information they need to assess those standards, and determine whether or not the service meets their business’ security requirements.
