Intersolar: skytron energy launches updated PVGuard®, with integrated controls

Celebrates global market leadership in monitoring systems for utility-scale PV segment

skytron® energy, a First Solar company and the global market leader in utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) monitoring, today announced the launch of version 2.3 of its PVGuard® Supervision Platform.

 

The updated version will be showcased at Intersolar 2016, and features a new integrated control function, allowing operators to directly connect to a plant via a customized dashboard, activating and deactivating individual inverters, sections, or the entire plant. This direct connection to the PV plant allows selected data to be displayed live on the dashboard and makes the effects of switching operations visible in real-time.

 

PVGuard 2.3 also allows operators to store high-resolution data from metering devices and the power plant controller for up to six months in a database, thereby enabling long-term, in-depth analysis of system performance. Version 2.3 is now optimized for use in 64-bit environments, especially with Windows 10 and Java 8.

 

“Customer satisfaction is our first priority,” said Hendrik Hoffmann, Director Software, Service and O&M at skytron energy. “Our aim is to develop new products and improve existing ones. The PVGuard® Supervision Platform is the heart of our monitoring technology. The new 2.3 version makes it easier for owners to handle the most varied data from the PV plant and simplifies recurring processes like sending reports and emails.”

 

Global Leader in PV Monitoring

skytron energy is also celebrating the fact that it has retained its position as the world’s top provider of monitoring systems for utility-scale PV plants, according to GTM Research. GTM’s ‘Global PV Monitoring 2016-2020: Markets, Trends and Leading Players’ report compared 26 companies and awarded skytron energy the top position in the utility-scale segment, a position it has held since 2014.

 

“We’re pleased to have, once again, retained our leadership position in the prestigious GTM Research rankings. We see the 6,600 MW of global installed capacity that is optimized by PVGuard, as a reflection of the confidence that plant owners and investors have in our technology,” said Lino Garcia, Director Business Development and Sales at skytron energy. “The fact that we’ve retained the top position demonstrates just how much value our customers place in the differentiated services we’re able to provide. What truly sets us apart from the competition is our ability to deliver high quality analytics that provide the granular views that asset owners and operators need, when they need it.”

 

skytron energy will exhibit at Intersolar Europe, the world’s largest solar trade fair, and will be co-located with First Solar at Booth 160 in Hall A1.
