New digital technologies such as the Internet of Things and cloud computing are allowing solar project developers, EPCs and owners to have detailed insights into PV power plant performance.

Project owners, in the grid-parity age, are also demanding more granular information on operation, beyond the inverter level, towards the string and even individual tracker rows.

In light of these developments, suppliers are updating SCADA and monitoring platforms to provide new levels of data acquisition and analytics to provide PV project owners and operators with unparalleled insights into design, performance and O&M.

Join this free pv magazine Webinar, in partnership with TrinaTracker, to learn more about these developments with a leading PV solution provider.

The webinar will see the global launch of the Trina Smart Cloud, including a demo of the platform drawing on real-world data from Trina-supplied projects in the field.

Alongside the experts from Trina’s Cloud Energy Internet and Tracker divisions, the webinar will feature a presentation and interactive discussion with a representative from agenda-setting developer Baywa r.e. to gain insights about the company’s expectations and cutting-edge work in project monitoring and performance optimization.

For Baywa r.e., advanced digital monitoring and asset management tools are set to become an important part of the company’s toolkit. Having established itself as a highly-innovative project developer the company is transitioning to becoming a fully-fledged Independent Power Producer – meaning that long term operation of projects will be more important than ever.

Join the webinar to hear from Baywa r.e. about its strategy and approach to asset management, including developing “digital twin” granularity in monitoring and the way in which it is monitoring and evaluating the effectiveness of smart-tracking algorithms in the field.
