ABB provides a complete, fully integrated, intelligent CPV system with a single point of connection for plant management. Operators can now control voltage, frequency, real power, reactive power, power factor, and ramp-up rate of generation to maximize reliability and efficiency on the network. In addition, operators will have visibility down to the component level of the plant to optimize performance and O&M costs. The controller also interacts with the energy meter, transformer, and weather station.
The CPV solar plant with the new smart grid capabilities is a result of an investment in, and strategic partnership with, GreenVolts Inc. of Fremont, Calif.
