As electricity generation is becoming decentralized and democratized, different types of stakeholders (asset owners, asset operators and asset users) need tools to manage and operate their assets. SunDash is an AI-driven system to address their needs. By accurately collecting and analyzing the data from solar and storage sites, it provides rich insights to the users. For example, it recommends optimal schedule for cleaning the solar panels such that generation is maximized while minimizing water usage; it provides an accurate root cause analysis for solar shortfall insurer to understand the real reason for decreased generation. This solution is being used to manage more than 400 solar installations, ranging in capacity from 5 kw to 140 MW, in India, Dubai, Spain, Kenya and Australia.

Electricity industry is going through a fundamental paradigm shift with the availability of inexpensive solar panels and batteries. This trend is posing significant socio-economic challenges for various stakeholders. For instance, electricity suppliers are looking to manage distributed generation and enable innovative schemes such as community energy sharing; asset owners and owners are interested in tracking their assets in real time. Given these requirements, we have a developed a platform-independent software called SunLeaf that can interface with various power electronic equipment over industry standard protocols. The key benefits of SunLeaf are:

  • Hardware-independent - Not tied to any hardware. It runs on a wide variety of computing devices including single board computers such as Advantech, Soekris, Orange Pi, Raspberry Pi, etc, and desktop computers.
  • OS-independent - Support for both windows (7, 8, 10) and Linux (Debian, Ubuntu, etc) operating systems.
  • Automation Protocol compliance - Supports multiple industrial automation protocols such as MODBUS RTU, MODBUS TCP and OPC.
  • PLC support SunLeaf can also interface with PLC databases over SQL and collect data.
  • Scale-free design – application can scale up or down based on the resources (CPU, RAM, disk, hardware interfaces) presented by the computing device SunLeaf is running on.
  • Highly configurable – web browser-based configuration allows specifying/modifying various parameters such as sampling rates, server credentials, parameter list, etc.
  • Web protocols support – supports HTTP, HTTPS REST and FTP for transferring the data from sites to remote servers.
  • Edge computing capability – can function independent of the cloud server. It Supports edge analytics and optimization so low-latency applications such as generation curtailment and storage optimization are supported.
