PV fleet monitoring and alarming, reliable and low cost
The phenomenal development of solar energy has brought new challenges for photovoltaic fleet and system operators. This results from the wide diversity of types of assets, from very small to large in scale, and the diverse inverter technologies located in varied and often remote locations. PV serenity is a low-cost, reliable, plug-and-play alarming and monitoring solution designed to meet this challenge.
Existing monitoring solutions for PV fleets often have functionality that may not be required, and are therefore expensive and often suffer from communication problems, such as power outages, coverage issues or network saturation. As a result, false alarms are generated, leading to unnecessary site interventions, with the actual production disruption going undetected.
PV Serenity, for peace of mind
PV Serenity offers a fleet monitoring platform allowing operators to visualise all the essential performance information from the different assets. It instantly detects production shutdowns or severe anomalies, immediately warning the operator over a secure and reliable communications system with a clear and distinctive alarm. And no more false alarms!
Effective instantaneous alarms
PV Serenity sends notifications via email or SMS whenever there is a disruption in production or severe performance anomaly.
Reduced operating costs
Unnecessary travel to remote sites is completely avoided, with operating cost savings.
PV Serenity lets operators visualise the whole fleet at once. Accurate daily performance reporting is available through the OneBoard application.
PV Serenity uses Sigfox, a dedicated Internet of Things (IoT) network, connecting devices using low bandwidth wireless communication. Performance data are updated every 15 minutes.
PV Serenity is delivered ready to go, and is easy to install, regardless of the PV inverter used on-site.
“We’re entirely satisfied with PV Serenity. Since we installed it in 2016, we’ve avoided three long-term interruptions because it detected production stoppages instantly.“ François LEBRETON Area Manager, E&C CoverSolar
