PcVue, Inc., the North American affiliate of ARC Informatique and HMI/SCADA software automation solution provider, will be presenting at Intersolar North America 2017, in San Francisco, July 11-13 a new solar solution to easily and reliably monitor and control SunSpec compliant solar assets.
The new PcVue Solutions SunSpec Scanner is compliant with the SunSpec standard for interoperability across solar power generation equipment. It provides for automated configuration of the communication between compliant equipment such as inverters, smart meters and weather stations and PcVue’s solar monitoring software platform. Solar operations and maintenance (O&M) organizations and Independent Power Producers (IPP) that manage multiple PV farms using different supplier’s equipment can now have a consistent supervisory system to manage all their solar assets.
According to the Solar Electric Power Association, as large-scale photovoltaic (PV) solar projects become an integral part of utility portfolios across the country, managing these assets for optimum performance—physical and financial—has become a high priority for a range of stakeholders. Specifically the industry requires more overlap of asset management (AM) and operations and maintenance (O&M) capabilities.
According to Ed Nugent, PcVue COO: “Intersolar is the perfect venue to unveil our SunSpec compliant solar monitoring solution and show how we solve communication and interoperability challenges engineers face when managing large PV farms. PcVue Solutions SunSpec Scanner provides a robust automated and fully integrated system that is flexible, scalable and easy to use so that it saves time, optimizes performance and reduces maintenance issues.”
The SunSpec Alliance is a trade alliance of over 70 solar and storage distributed energy industry participants, together pursuing information standards to enable “plug & play” system interoperability.
