Huawei collaborated in showcasing smart PV solutions at SNEC 2017 from April 19 to 21. Huawei chose “building an all-smart PV ecosystem” as the theme and shared the latest innovations and practical tactics across three exhibition areas: FusionHome Smart Energy Solution, FusionSolar Smart PV Solution 5.0, and Energy Internet.
FusionHome ushers in a new era of smart home energy.
On April 19, Huawei unveiled the FusionHome Smart Energy Solution which is oriented to user experience, makes energy management visible and simple, and classifies energy use scenarios. This demonstration attracted thousands of visitors from the PV and media industries. The one-tap experience from the FusionHome Smart Energy Solution makes life much easier. Module-level, rapid shutdown technology protects people and property by preventing a direct, high voltage current from being produced on the rooftop. The Smart PV Controller uses more silicon and less copper along with Huawei patented topology technology. The more precise power conversion and control technology, such as the intelligent five-level technology, makes the AC output waves more smooth and improves efficiency by 0.5% to 1.6%, reaching up to 98.6%. The European weighted efficiency of the inverter is 98%, while the weighted efficiency of the smart PV optimizer reaches 99%, which is 0.4% higher than competitor products.
FusionHome converges the information and energy flows of smart homes. Smart devices communicate with each other over wireless communication modes, such as enhanced WiFi and 4G networks. Consequently, the production, storage, and consumption of power from home energy are managed in a visualized way. People can allocate energy ideally while enjoying the comfortable life, allowing for self-sufficient households that can achieve full digitization and close-to-zero consumption.
FusionSolar Smart PV Solution 5.0 is simpler, more cost-effective, and more reliable than its predecessors.
Smart trackers, PV controllers, 4G LTE wireless dedicated network transmission, smart PV plant management system, and FusionSolar smart O&M cloud center were all showcased at the FusionSolar Smart PV Solution 5.0 exhibition area. These components work together to build a complete smart PV ecosystem to suit large-scale ground-mounted PV plants, distributed PV plants, and PV plants for poverty alleviation, agriculture, and fishery.
On the basis of FusionSolar 3.0, FusionSolar 5.0 focuses on an all-smart ecosystem, continuous innovation, simplifying the system, reducing the investment, and improving the system security and reliability. FusionSolar 5.0 inherits the outstanding fuse-free, natural cooling, and 2-input and 1-MPPT designs. By teaming up with industry partners, Huawei integrates multiple intelligent advanced technologies, including the smart tracker convergence, smart box-type transformer, smart I-V curve diagnosis, smart O&M, and smart component (optimizer) in FusionSolar 5.0. The line loss on the entire PV array decreases, the energy yields increase continuously, and the O&M cost and initial investment reduce.
Huawei FusionSolar smart O&M cloud center management system centrally configures resources based on cloud computing, big data mining, and the mobile 4G cluster scheduling system. This makes PV plants manageable, visible, and controllable. As a result, PV plants can exist relatively unattended and faults can be intelligently identified and reported. In addition, mobile remote O&M and emergency command also help improve day-to-day operational benefits throughout the PV plant lifecycle. Huawei FusionSolar cloud center management system has been widely used in global key accounts, including SPIC, GCL, CMIG, JinkoSolar, Akcome, Tongwei, CMN, and Zhongli Talesun, and helps them improve O&M efficiency by more than 50%.
Huawei is committed to enabling and promoting the development of the energy internet.
As the environmental problems become increasingly serious, the replacement of fossil fuels with renewable energy is an irreversible trend. Huawei, a leading global ICT and network energy solutions provider, has always been involved in digital information as well as electrical and electronic technologies. Based on intelligent power production, power consumption, and interconnection, as well as cloud sharing, Huawei combines cloud computing, big data, IoT technology, and wireless communication with renewable energy and is committed to enabling and promoting the development of the energy internet. Huawei remains committed to cooperating with industry partners to build an open energy internet ecosystem.
SNEC is one of the biggest international PV tradeshows, attracting world’s top PV enterprises. The products and technologies showcased at this event are the most cutting-edge and innovative in the industry. Huawei Smart PV Solution received many awards, including the two most prestigious: the Ten Bright Spots Award and Terawatt Diamond Award, owing to its advanced technologies, innovations, and reputation.
India’s top customers visited Huawei during SNEC 2017
Huawei invited India’s top PV shareholders and EPC companies to participate in the SNEC exhibition and visit the inverter product line in Songshanhu base, Huawei headquarters in Shenzhen, the Smart PV Gala Dinner, and 100 MW PV plant for fishery in Huzhou. In Songshanhu base, customers visited the 18 MW rooftop-mounted PV plant showcase, inverter product line, FusionSolar Smart O&M system, and the automatic logistics system. A tour of Huawei headquarters in Shenzhen, including the F1 exhibition hall and GCTC lab, took place against a backdrop of beautiful blossoms and green scenery. The F1 exhibition hall demonstrates Huawei’s global leadership in the ICT field, referencing cutting-edge technologies, innovation, and R&D to inspire confidence and long-term partnerships. The GCTC lab demonstrates Huawei’s stringent requirements on products and technologies along with first-class quality control capabilities. “Verified by GCTC” has become a mark of Huawei quality.
During the SNEC exhibition in Shanghai, the VIP customers were involved in high-level talks with the leader of the Network Energy Product Line about the development trends in the PV sector. PV modules are 4 to 6 meters higher than the fish pond surface, which ensures sufficient irradiation and safe passage for staff. This is the largest PV plant worldwide and uses the full Huawei Smart PV Solution. With openness, cooperation, and mutual benefit in mind, Huawei will remain customer-centered. Looking to the future, Huawei will fully leverage partner advantages to build an open and harmonious all-smart PV ecosystem. Huawei will continue to share resources across the industry, helping to forge more innovative and competitive solutions. This will in turn accelerate the grid parity process and promote the sustainable development of the PV industry to build a better connected PV world.
