Bob Stojanovic According to ABB, the company's complete CPV solution now offers utilities higher levels of control for next-generation grid management.


 Bob Stojanovic, ABB's director of North American solar power solutions said, “Because it is fully integrated, it provides capabilities not currently available for any other solar plant, providing the next level of intelligence for the grid.”


 Operators will have visibility down to the component level of the plant to optimize performance and operations and maintenance costs.


 The controller also interacts with the energy meter, transformer and weather station, reports Renew Grid.
