To monitor and manage solar energy storage

June 27th, 2018, Published in Articles: Energize

Moxa’s Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) gateways can provide the computing backbone required for solar energy storage and monitoring. Smart power management and the integration of sustainable energy sources into the power grid are the keys to maintaining continuous power supply to smart cities.

These energy storage and monitoring systems require a reliable and efficient computing platform which offers industrial-grade embedded edge computers for remote monitoring, data acquisition, data logging, and protocol conversion of inverter data to monitor solar panel effectiveness. Utility-scale solar power stations and residential solar PV systems have the capability to feed excess power back to the electric grid for future consumption. Solar energy storage and monitoring systems help solar power operators to collect and process data from edge devices, making it possible for them to increase efficiency and overcome power outages.
