Gantner Instruments presents new monitoring solutions for utility-scale PV plants at the World Future Energy Summit in Abu Dhabi
The new solution for monitoring on string level “string.bloxx All-in-one” recognizes design and production errors with high resolution down to PV module level. It combines DC measurement, fuses, overvoltage protection and communication, leading to an improved ROI and a cost reduction of 30 per cent compared with standard concepts. The significant reduction of interfaces leads to reduced risk and faster plant installation time.
Gantner Instruments will also be presenting the Q.reader control unit at the summit, which is a compact solution for logging and controlling, as well as its independent real-time analysis platform for data acquisition and effective O&M activities, the gantner.webportal. In addition to data acquisition, the portal is also a platform for storage and control, which offers investors solid and reliable information enabling them to evaluate their PV portfolio performance and develop preventive maintenance strategies.
“The need for accurate PV testing to maximize the yield, reduce the risks and deliver supportive functions to contribute to grid stability is growing worldwide”, says Juergen Sutterlueti, Head of Energy Segment and Business Development at Gantner Instruments. He adds: “It is our aim to be the best partner for cost effective renewable energy generation, and to provide the best solutions for monitoring and controlling utility scale projects worldwide.”
At the World Future Energy Summit, visitors can find the company at booth no. 7323. In addition, Juergen Sutterlueti will speak at the summit's TechTalks about the "Cost/Benefit Analysis of Advanced Monitoring for Utility Scale PV projects: Improved LCoE due to PV Performance Understanding, Optimization and Prediction" on January 19 at 12:20 p.m.
