Eight thousand solar panels, located in the Naxçıvan Automonomous Republic in Azerbaigian, for a photovoltaic park of twenty-two megawatts that produce 30 million KiloWatt-hours a year at full capacity with a CO2 emission savings of about 18,000 per year. The projects has been designed and developed to allow the site’s operators to interact in a simple and quick way.
The project also caters for the less experienced operator in both supervision software and in managing production sites of this size.
With this in mind the basic idea of this project was to permit operators, including those with less experience, to become familiar with the process and gain easy control of the site to make it more productive by means of using a simple supervision system.
The most important function of this project is without doubt managing enormous quantities of data collected from field devices. In fact, about 1700 pieces of data are received from the Sofrel electric panels for each inverter daily.
Overall around 230 thousand pieces of information transit daily from RTUs to NExT’s Historian database for a total of about 7 million a month.
Information is reprocessed at regular intervals by means of the SCADA’s scripts and MySQL procedures and centralized in optimized database tables. These tables are then used to manage data analysis and reports which are needed by operators to understand the site’s running status.
The installed system performs well in managing alarms and helps resolve malfunctions efficiently and effectively, as alarms are immediately sent to the SCADA which displays them.
In the event of an inverter malfunction, the operator can navigate the screens until reaching the page relating to the inverter in question in order to find all details on the anomaly. Therefore, and in the major part of the cases, the operator is able to have all the information that they need straightaway in order to know how to react and solve the detected problem before physically attending to the inverter.
In addition, the comparison graphs show real-time electric data of several inverters which make it possible for operators to intercept visually malfunctions of an inverter that otherwise would only be detected afterwards when analyzing Energy/Irradiation data stored in the database.
This modular and open platform will empower automation professionals as the perfect solution for Supervision, HMI, Control, Historian, MES and industrial Analysis. The Movicon.NExT™ project has been engineered to overcome the restricted use of conventional SCADA/HMI technology.
