The SolarEye Platform is a high-performance Web 2.0 platform which is running from dedicated servers in Europe. This platform is directly over the Web through different devices like standard desktops, smart phone devices and tablet devices.
What is the SolarEye platform?
SolarEye Platform is a pioneering Web based Photovoltaic software that provides real time remote monitoring and management solutions for multiple solar photovoltaic systems, regardless of the inverter manufacturer. Based on the platform’s accurate models for real time estimation of the expected yield of energy and powerful data visualization tools, the SolarEye platform increases the photovoltaic efficiency and enables PV installations owners towards fastest isolation of any failures in the PV installations, therefor resulting in a higher return on investment.
Why is monitoring and the SolarEye platforms important?
The PV installations are assets that can create value for the owners. Thus PV plant owners should attempt to get the most out of this asset and maximize their ROI. PV professionals who are responsible of the operation and maintenance of PV plants need different tools and solutions that help them maximize the yield of the installations, increase the satisfaction of their customer and reduce the costs associated with monitoring, management, troubleshooting and fault recovery.
The traditional monitoring and management systems of PV installations are only limited to presenting the data collected at the plant. On the other hand, the SolarEye Platform is a smart system which works as a virtual energy assistant. It proactively monitors and detect any potential faults automatically in the PV plants with high accuracy, therefore creating synergy between stakeholders towards higher efficiency, reliability and increased returns.
Components of SolarEye Platform
The SolarEye Platform is compatible with various third party sensors and data loggers provided by different manufacturers. So, using a compatible data logger ensures no extra equipment is required along with the SolarEye software.
Features of SolarEye Platform:
1- Performance Estimation
Analysis and comparison in real time between the produced energy by the plant and the estimated energy production based on intelligent simulation models. High accuracy in performance deviations are calculated with high accuracy that can reach up to 2% and enable detection of potential disturbances in the PV installation.
2- Monitoring and Management
Monitoring numerous plants simultaneously with a combined management environment for the PV installations. Presentation and management of different plants with inverters of multiple types and various manufacturers. Comparison of plants based on different key performance indicators.
3- Rich Diagnostic Tools
Advanced diagnostic tools for quick fault detection through the friendly user and stylish interfaces, based on Web 2.0 technology. Automatic generation of an AC diagram of each device and visualization of the possible faults, therefore increasing speed of recovery and graphical representation of different data sets (Generated Power, Energy, Current and Voltage, etc.). Identifying the inverters with loss of energy, plotting the periods in which the production is less than expected and the corresponding loss of energy.
4- Dynamic Alerts & Reporting
Alerts can be sent through email and SMS in case of erratic operation and major failures. In addition, full reporting of the plants' operational status and performance can be easily configured by the integrator.
