With a solid framework and effective implementation, Kalkitech IoT based solar power monitoring system is specifically designed with customized features to overcome recurring technical issues happening at the Solar power generation plants. More than just solar power monitoring, kalki.io DER headend can be used to deploy applications for generation forecasting, predictive maintenance, inventory management, and degradation monitoring, thereby helping to optimize your ROI.
Why kalki.io DER Headend?
The Solar PV monitoring system part of DER Headend integrates with both legacy plant level SCADA systems as well as with the latest IoT based sensors and empowers you to manage your PV plant in a single frame view, with live updates and status of components, enabling the quick fix for unproductive or malfunctioning of any equipment. While conventional monitoring & management solutions available are not centralized, we offer an end-to-end cloud-based solution for centralized solar energy monitoring, controlling, and management. It also provides role-based access and control across the fleet and gives you an edge over data collection by analyzing the gathered data to optimize the power generation to the rated capacity. Unlike conventional SCADA based monitoring systems, Kalki.io IoT based solar power monitoring system is built with sufficient security measures. Compared to SCADA based solar monitoring solutions, Kalki solar PV monitoring system is of superior quality and provides better control over the production and managing of your remote assets and helps in improving the portfolio.
To name a few, the major highlights of Kalkitech IoT based solar power monitoring system includes communication with multiple makes of inverters and revenue meters, user-friendly interface with single line diagram, dashboards, reports, and alerts, REST API for building additional applications, and more. Kalki.io solution is a cloud-based monitoring platform that renders improved solar PV performance monitoring and yield assurance. The built-in monitoring sensors and transmitters of each panel transmit data to the inverter, allowing immediate fault detection of equipment and alerts at the module level, string level, and system level. Ensuring secure authentication, kalki.io solar PV monitoring system consolidates data from different sites / different makes & models and improves equipment design life by monitoring the operational and performance data in a very seamless manner. It also reduces maintenance costs by secure remote access and optimizes operating costs by reducing unplanned incidents and onsite manpower requirements. Besides, the system ensures regulatory compliance by seamless integration with the grid operator. Through proactive maintenance, it increases the asset life improving the power generation yield and increases your Return on the Investment.
