Professional Green Power Monitoring System for Better Life

In recent years, an increasing number of solar power stations have been built. The monitoring, operation and management of these photovoltaic power stations is a concern among power generators and grid companies. Advantech's Solar Power Monitoring System enables comprehensive data acquisition and analyses for distributed solar power facilities and realizes remote operation and maintenance to allow for effective management over equipment and assets of power stations. It provides a unified platform for unified intelligent management over a great number of distributed power stations, integrating monitored data of all kinds into unified databases which can provide different users with different needs. This integrated management system provides a carrier for adding new equipment at optimal cost-effectiveness.

Project Introduction

Advantech total solutions for a solar power monitoring system, which are mainly composed of Advantech's products of WebAccess software, data acquisition modules, communication and industrial servers. Advantech's solutions enable data acquisition from PV subsystems and data analyses, remote operation and maintenance of solar power stations, and effective management over the equipment and assets of the power stations.

Application Scenarios

This system can provide monitoring and control over ground-mounted, roof-mounted and building-mounted solar power applications.

Typical Solar Power Monitoring Architecture

  • Field data acquisition: using Advantech industrial grade embedded and low power fanless systems to collect and transmit data acquired from photovoltaic power stations

  • Data transmission: using Advantech industrial grade Ethernet switches and wireless modules to ensure real time, stable and secured data transmission

  • Data storage and analyses: using Advantech intelligent solar power management software SPMS to establish connection of solar power monitoring system, GIS and video monitoring system with unified data interfaces
