Case Study: Using OPC Software To Operate Wind Farms in Spain

Darek Kominek, MatrikonOPC
July 31, 2014

Confronted by problems such as multiple locations, proprietary components from multiple vendors, and the necessity for reliable communication channels over unreliable network environments, the energy company had found data consolidation from its different wind farms highly challenging.

In partnering with experts dedicated to provide a vendor-neutral solution, OPC could be implemented as a corporate standard for communication. Thanks to this, the energy company achieved a scalable and robust architecture based on an open standard which enables the creation of a vendor neutral hardware and software architecture. As a result, the connectivity between the remote wind farms and the control center allowed for reliable data transition and reduced project costs.

Agelbert NOTE: Fossil fuel power plants are NOT available for power production an average of 12.5% of the time. The next time some idiot tells you Renewable Energy is intermittent, ask them, AS OPPOSED TO WHAT? And nuclear power plants are DOWN more than 12.5% of the time!
