Telemetering in Solar Farms
Solar power plants are challenging to maintain high energy production performance. All components require calibration and maintenance, such as replacing parts or cleaning panels, which must be monitored and controlled, seeking the highest efficiency in the energy produced.
These plantations are located in very large areas, far from civilization and, therefore, far from internet connections, posing a problem for the companies when monitoring and controlling the installations.
The diagram shows a simple solution with a remote cellular connection to the control center of the panels. Normally these stations have a control of the solar plantation operations, with an industrial protocol data output system, e.g. via Modbus TCP.
Depending on the size of the solar plantation, several control centers are usually installed every certain number of solar panels. This is where our solution comes in, the best way to treat this data is through an IoT platform in the cloud, showing an operator a series of graphs of performance and maintenance of our installation. Our ROUTEX P provides a secure and reliable cellular connection via 4G LTE, with an operator-friendly interface.
