skytron energy unveils latest PVGuard Supervision Platform

By Editor


skytron energy, a First Solar company offering utility-scale photovoltaic (PV) monitoring solutions, announced the launch of version 2.3 of its PVGuard Supervision Platform.

The updated version 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, the company said.

“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.”

Hoffmann further said 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.

skytron energy recently has been positioned as the world’s top provider of monitoring systems for utility-scale PV plants by 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.

skytron energy will showcase version 2.3 of its PVGuard Supervision Platform at Intersolar 2016.
