SOLA system provides visibility over solar power plant by utilizing industrial internet technologies (IoT). The system utilizes smart wireless sensors, short range radio communication, cloud computing and big data analytics algorithms.
Solar panels are equipped with smart wireless sensor nodes measuring health status of each individual panel. Measurement results are collected and delivered to a cloud database via a gateway. Dashboard application shows status of the solar power plant in real-time (e.g. via a laptop computer/smart device connected to internet/intranet).
