SOUTH PLAINFIELD, USA: Petra Solar, a NJ- based technology company providing reliable, cost-effective smart energy solutions to the electric supply industry, announced the launch of its IntelliView smart energy platform. IntelliView provides utilities with a suite of state-of-the-art services to manage a wide range of smart grid applications.
“IntelliView uniquely combines smart grid network infrastructure management with renewable energy management services for our worldwide utility partners,” said Dr. Shihab Kuran, president and CEO of Petra Solar. “The robust platform is scalable to future smart grid applications, including energy efficiency, energy conservation, grid reliability and smart microgrids.”
The IntelliView smart energy platform provides critical analysis of smart grid application data to enable remote command and control of large distributed energy systems. With the Network Management System (NMS) 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 Energy Management System (EMS) 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 their investment. 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 (NOC) 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. Utilities can leverage the expertise of the Petra Solar highly trained technical staff to be the first line of defense in managing, monitoring and troubleshooting the system. This model allows utilities to focus on other key functions of their operations, while deriving full benefits from their investment in the Petra Solar designed smart grid system.
