How?
What is GPM-PV+?
When?
Where?
Multi-User Software

No matter where PV plants come from.
No matter which kind of PV plants are them.
Central Software

The system is totally adaptable to any type of PV plant.

availability
1. Data Measurements: System devices (Meters, inverters, pyranometers,etc.) measure available data.

2. Acquisition and storage of data: Data is collected and stored by the DAM every 5 minutes.

3. Data Shipping: Data is sent to GPM's server each 5 minutes via GPRS.

4. Real time duplication: Every second, data is replicated on GPM PV+ Server.

5. PV+ data analysis: Data is automatically refreshed on the entire system and evaluated through the alarm management system

DAM Communication's Loss
Device Communication's Loss
Plant Stopped
Alerts Management Module
What happens?
Data collected by the DAM is not sent to the GPM Server.
If the DAM has its memory card all data will be entirely saved and stored.
Once the communication is recovered the DAM will automatically sent all data stored during the communication loss.
How can I detect this scenario?
PV+ detect the communication failure and instantaneously launch an alert that we can check immediately on the system (if required it advises via email as well).
PV+ automatically detect when the communication is recovered and instantaneously deactivate the alert (if required it advises via email as well).
Data is automatically refreshed throughout the system when the communication is recovered.
What happens?
The DAM does not collect any data from this device.
The DAM sends 0s instead of the real data to detect that situation.
During the communication failure, data will be lost unless the device has saved the data (e.g. meters store Load Curves and thus they can be recovered in such communication failure).
How can I detect this scenario?
PV+ detect the communication failure and instantaneously launch an alert that we can check immediately on the system (if required it advises via email as well).
PV+ automatically detect when the communication is recovered and instantaneously deactivate the alert (if required it advises via email as well).
As data acquired during the communication loss corresponds to 0s the system will avoid this data to calculate any custom parameter.
What happens?
Without current, DAMs have a little security battery and will only still storing data while this is not yet consumed (2 hours aprox.).
All the DAMs on plant will stop to store data once their battery is consumed.
No data data will be sent if the DAMs are stopped and thus the data from devices connected to a SAI will be lost, unless that data is able to be recovered later.
How can I detect this scenario?
PV+ will detect all the DAMs on plant have lost their communication and will launch one alert for each DAM.
PV+ automatically detect when the communication is recovered and instantaneously deactivate all the alerts.
Data stored during battery's life will be automatically refreshed through the system.
Device Tree
Customised Elements and Parameters
Alarms' Configuration
Features
Plants are positioned on map

You have an overview of the status of your portfolio (Integrated alerts launched).

You can switch from the map to the layout clicking on the plant
Features
First Layer:
We integrate the plant's map.
We customise general parameters such as Total Energy, Total Power, Irradiation's average, etc.
We have an overview of the plant's status (Integrated alerts launched).

Second Layer:
We integrate the inverter's zone with important values such as power, energy, etc.
We can quickly and fastly see which inverter is in alert status.
Features
Overview of the portfolio's status (Integrated Alerts launched).

All devices and parameters monitored for the whole portfolio.

Hierarchic relationship between devices on plant.

Accede to the element viewer
Features
BUDGET:
Integration of the expected energies for the plant.
METEO:
Centralization of all weather parameters such as Pyranometer's irradiation, Irradiation's average, etc.
PERFORMANCE:
Centralization of all Performance parameters such as Inverter's PR, Meter's PR, Total PR, etc.
TOTALIZERS:
Centralization of all the aggregated data such as Total Inverters Energy, Total Meters Energy, etc.
Features
STEP 1: Define the production hierarchy of the plant.
STEP 2: Definition of alarms' templates.
Datalogger Communication: Highest level, without data no other alarms can be assessed.
Device Communication: If a device has no communication no other alerts can be evaluated for him.
Device production=0: If a device has stopped its production, all device below him will be stopped as well. Thus this alarm needs to be hierarchical.
Device warning: This alarm is the less critical, thus it has the lowest level without hierarchy.
STEP 3: Definition of alarms
Here you need to select a template for each alarm and define the following settings:
Activation's condition (AC).
Time with AC=True to launch the alarm.
Reactivation time: time to resend an email when an alert is still launched.
Senders to advise via email.
Features
Inquire current activated alerts.
Assess historical alerts.
Filter by plant, date, elements, alert type, etc.
Enter detailed tickets about maintenance tasks.
Evaluate conditions, times and losses.
Export historical alerts.
Case study 1
Case Study 2
Evaluate from general to specific
STEP1: Check possible issues on your portfolio from the MAP

STEP2: Identify the location of the incidence jumping to the LAYOUT

STEP3: Check the alert information to know what kind of issue are
you dealing with.

STEP4: Jump from the Layout to the Alert's Grid.

STEP5: Assign the issue to an operator.

STEP6: Note the alert and monitor its resolution.
Export energy, irradiation, PR and Availability of the month for your customer
STEP1: Open the Data Viewer from the Main Menu

STEP2: Select the parameters to build the quick reports

STEP3: Select the granularity and set the period.
