SCADA system for monitoring and management of PV and wind power plants

What is SCADA System?

A SCADA system (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) is a technological solution designed for remote supervision and control over mainly industrial and energy processes. In the latter case, SCADA systems play a crucial role by enabling efficient monitoring of renewable energy (RES) plants‘ performance, managing inverter operations, and optimizing energy production. Nomad NX SCADA system is designed for PV farms or wind farms.

 

How does our SCADA operate in practice?

systemów scadaThe Nomad NX SCADA system consists of a control cabinet installed on-site, and software with a comprehensive analysis module that enables comprehensive remote control and real-time monitoring of the portfolio of generation sources. The system operates based on several key elements. First, controllers collect data from various sensors, such as those found on a PV farm or wind farm.

This data may include information on energy production, inverter status, sunlight levels, and even module temperatures. The raw data is then transmitted to data servers where it is stored and processed. Ultimately, the monitoring centre allows the operator to visualise the data and manage the plant in real time, enabling a quick response to changing conditions and optimising the operation of the PV or wind power plant.

 

 

What specific tasks and functions does the NOMAD NX SCADA system perform on renewable energy plants?

The NOMAD NX SCADA system is a proprietary control system developed by the Nomad Electric team of automation specialists and O&M experts. It is dedicated exclusively to monitoring, controlling and managing production sources in the renewable energy sector. Its primary function is to provide continuous monitoring of energy production. This is essential for the operation of any renewable energy farm. The system uses advanced algorithms to analyze data, identify abnormalities, predict potential outages and automatically adjust equipment operating parameters to optimise energy production. The SCADA system plays a crucial role in alarm management. NOMAD NX automatically detects and identifies areas requiring intervention and alerts operators in the technologically advanced monitoring centre. To minimise downtime, the system can also suggest corrective actions to be carried out remotely or on-site by a service engineer. The system also allows remote control and automation of processes such as managing inverter operation, adjusting device operating parameters or optimising energy production based on current needs and conditions.

What benefits does such a system offer investors?
