Solar Power Networking Solutions

Introduction

Solar farms use semi-conductive components to absorb solar radiation and turn it into electric energy. Solar energy is becoming common in the global energy market because of its endless storage and low cost. Solar energy is developing quickly around the world and is considered an important part of sustainable development in every country. Solar power stations utilize photovoltaic cells combiner boxes, low-voltage DC cabinets, inverter cabinets, low-voltage AC cabinets and step-up transformers.

Case Study

System Requirements

Solar power plant monitoring systems use real-time monitoring of each component within the PV power station. The purpose is to monitor the station’s running state making sure that the power generation system is stable.The system requires:

  • Product per formance  in harsh climates and environments at PV power plants
  • Prevention from EMI/EMS interference
  • Strict MTBF requirements
  • Network management systems
  • Support for ring topology network
  • Available bandwidth for video monitoring
  • Data collection from  intelligent terminals through gateways
  • Ethernet access via serial ports
