SCADA Application for Wind Generators Announced
This new application combines SCADA Solutions’ WindCapture™ SCADA software technology with the Landis+Gyr Gridstream™ RF network to deliver two-way monitoring, control and reporting functions for wind-powered electric generation. The integrated solution is being showcased at the WINDPOWER 2009 Conference & Exhibition, where Landis+Gyr and SCADA Solutions are teamed in Booth #3226, currently underway at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
“We’re excited about our growing relationship with Landis+Gyr, and the opportunity for SSI to incorporate advanced communication technology into the expanding wind industry,” said Mark Merhab, President of SCADA Solutions. “Reliable, fast and accurate data transmission for monitoring, control and reporting functions has become increasingly critical and this partnership is committed to providing end-to-end, advanced communications solutions that will empower the next generation of smart grid wind farms.”
“This partnership further demonstrates Landis+Gyr’s commitment to expand the capabilities of the Gridstream network to address smart grid requirements, such as SCADA applications for the renewable energy industry, as well as, distribution automation, AMI, and personal energy management applications.” said Derek Booth, Landis+Gyr Director of DA/SCADA Energy Management Solutions. “The interoperability of our Gridstream network allowed SCADA Solutions to rapidly integrate their product and deliver a complete solution to the industry.”
SCADA Solutions and Landis+Gyr recently finalized a Software License and Reseller Agreement to support this partnership. SCADA Solutions’ WindCapture is a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system used for monitoring and controlling, along with data collection and reporting for wind turbine generators. Landis+Gyr’s Gridstream RF network utilizes a peer-to-peer mesh technology to provide full two-way wireless communication for energy management applications.
