National Semiconductor Corp. has released the SolarMagic MYPVDATA Solar Operations Center (SOC). According to the company, the product is a software as a service designed to help users analyze data collected from the array by delivering information through an easy-to-use Web interface, so that maximum energy can be harvested.
MYPVDATA SOC is now included with ongoing service subscriptions for all current commercial customers. Tools include performance analysis (to analyze system performance relative to environmental conditions), progress analysis (to track production relative to a configured budget and predict future performance), symmetry analysis (to display energy harvest by string or other unit), and data analysis (to compare and perform calculations on any data points to create custom graphs and reports).
