Introducing Trinity Touch’s Solar Vision™ PV SCADA. It is essential to have a low cost reliable SCADA to ensure that maximum yield of a Solar PV plant. Once the sunlight is gone, there is no way to get it back, losing precious yield. The Solar Vision™ SCADA provides flexibility in monitoring and controlling the various plant component and operations, including trackers, inverters, substations and meters.

Solar Vision™ is an efficient and cost effective tool designed for the monitoring of the performance resulting in lower downtime increasing the Plant’s overall profitability. Solar Vision™ is developed on the strong and proven Industry Software Platform which provide the flexibility to communicate with the Field controllers via OPC. The software in the control center with all the necessary Data via a TCP/IP network. In this way plant data is available for long term analysis over the service life of the PV Plant. Client access of the data of the SQL Server database insuring no data loss if there is a communication loss between remote clients. Graphical Interface of Solar Vision™ satisfy the requirement of Investors / Operator / Service Engineer.

Solar Vision™ system detects and logs any problem and triggers alarms so that the Operations team can fix or change components or fine-tune the process of plant operation. The system monitors the performance by means of a sophisticated mathematical model initialized once at installation time with some plant design data: PV panels peak power, inverters, manufacturer-provided electric parameters, number of strings, strings length, etc. The model is then continuously fed with local weather data and calculates in real-time what would be the correct energy production at 100% of plant capacity

Plant at a glance

Solar Vision™ visualizes entire plant, blocks, inverter’s & string monitoring boxes on DC Side and Energy meters, Transformers and breakers at AC side including the associated detail information:

  • The plant view shows the block wise separation with overviews of blocks. Trends and alarms for the plant.
  • The block view shows the SMB, Inverter and LT panel details.
  • Energy and power measurements and power quality analysis from power meters.
  • In the static screen important parameter are displayed e.g. Energy generation, PR, Meteorological data .
  • SLD provides real time data display and a high-level overview of the system with key plant performance indicators including daily power generation, instantaneous generation, tracker status, irradiance and expected generation etc.
  • The detail information of devices are displayed in a form
    of Pop-UP’s
  • Independent pages for Trends, Alarms, Events logging.

Solar Vision™provides the plant & block analysis for important meteorological data vs plant and block performance

  • Irradiance / Generation
  • Temp / Generation
  • Simulated / Actual
  • PR / Generation
  • Real-time / Historical data
  • A graphical comparative analysis and individual string alarms make it easy to identify low string performance or degradation issues

Addition to this user can trend as many points as desired with zoom function and further analyze the data over any user-defined time period

Solar Vision™ provides advanced optional features to meet the need of modern day transmission and distribution
