Petra Solar has launched its IntelliView smart energy platform, which is designed to provide utilities with a suite of services to manage a wide range of smart grid applications.
With the Network Management System as a foundation module, users have a dashboard view of all elements of the communications network. Alerts, performance summaries, and mesh networking diagnostics are provided for problem identification and resolution on an exception basis, the company explains.
The Energy Management System module of IntelliView enables a centralized view of a virtual power plant consisting of a large installed base of SunWave smart solar systems distributed over a broad geographical area. The user can perform essential analysis required for ensuring peak generation and maximizing its investment, Petra Solar says. IntelliView's modular design creates the platform for additional data-analytics modules, coupling critical network management with smart energy applications.
The Petra Solar Network Operations Center also expands its smart energy services offering from support of SunWave smart solar systems to the option for full remote 24/7 operations of Petra Solar-designed smart grid networks. With the system, Petra Solar's technical staff will manage, monitor and troubleshoot the installation.
