Six myths about renewable power plant controllers


As utilities increasingly seek means to switch reliance from fossil-fuel to renewable sources of energy, renewable asset developers, managers, and utilities themselves are looking at ways to increase the efficiency and profitability of renewable power plants such as utility-scale solar PV farms. A critical aspect of the formula is to ensure maximum power generation without exceeding network capacity constraints.

Traditional monitoring and control platforms for hybrid and renewable power plants relied on analog control mechanisms, which have led to some myths and misconceptions about what can and can’t be done with automated controls.

Our Guidehouse Insights white paper debunks six myths about renewable energy power plant controls and is a must-read for anyone researching monitoring and control (M&C) platforms.
