The Challenge
Renewable energy sources like solar power have weaker bearing capacity and can be challenging to control due to fluctuating output based on weather conditions. This poses a risk of instability in the grid and large-scale power outages.
The Customer

Network Corporation

About The Customer
The customer is a company that generates and sells electricity to residential, commercial, and industrial customers. They needed a cost-effective and flexible solution to monitor the amount of electricity produced by 88,000 solar panels with a power generation capacity of 28 MW/h.
The Solution
The solution involved implementing a solar power monitoring system using the ADAM-3600 intelligent Remote Terminal Unit. This unit collects power generation data from the solar panels and sends it to the cloud using LTE communication. The system also supports wireless communication, is durable and can withstand varying weather conditions.
Quantitative Benefit
  • The cost saving achieved through the implementation of the solar power monitoring system was 1 billion yen compared to installing a wired optical network.
