Asset Monitoring for a Solar Estate Installation Company

Industry

Manufacturing

Services

Internet of Things (IoT)

Overview

The customer operates a Solar farm which is of 10 MW generation capacity. The solar estate has large ground mounted arrays of PV (photo voltaic) panels. DC current generated from the PV is fed to micro inverter. Inverter converts DC current into AC. For harmonic tuning, a transformer is used. From the transformer, power is transported to Grid through the switch gear.

Challenges

  • Need for a Real time monitoring system to monitor the life cycle states of Photo Voltaic panels, Inverters and Switchgear
  • Need to monitor farm wide environmental characteristics
