Solar Power Plant

The rapid development of renewable energy in Ukraine occurred in the second half of the 2010s. The increase in the number and size of solar power plants (SPPs), the variety of inverters and other additional equipment in the process of operation of SPPs increase the need and understanding that the basic inverter control tools supplied by manufacturers are not sufficient for full control of SPPs. If the remote monitoring systems of inverters of top manufacturers still provide the possibility of more or less convenient diagnostics and control of inverters, then the systems of the second echelon practically do not develop them. Such systems do not work in the absence of the Internet.

For medium- and large-size SPPs, classic local SCADA is a necessity. The costs of its implementation are recouped in the first weeks and months of operation.

We chose SCADA Zenon by Copa-Data as the basic platform for creating our applications.

In the field of energy, Zenon is one of the most advanced and popular systems, including due to its openness, certification and sustainable implementation of the latest standards and approaches. Zenon supports all typical protocols common in energy:

  • ICCP – TASE.2
  • DNP3
  • IEC 62056-21

  • IEC 61850 Client/Server і GOOSE
  • IEC 61850 Edition 2
  • IEC 60870-5 (101/103/104)

We have experience in managing SPPs based on widespread inverters from Huawei or Fronius, as well as on rare in Ukraine inverters from Schneider Electric or unknown Chinese manufacturers.

Advantages of local SCADA for SPPs: various plant control scenarios, synchronous control of inverters from different manufacturers, control of any plant equipment from one interface, temperature monitoring of transformers and substations, prompt acquisition of diagnostic data, equipment control without the Internet.

Basic features.

  • main SPP’s dashboard with plant control possibilities
  • connected equipment individual screens (inverters, switches, string connection boxes, network analyzers) with settings function
  • CEL (Chronologic Event Lis) and AML (Alarm Message List)
  • historical and realtime trends
  • application settings


  • SLD (single-line diagram)
  • IT network state
  • statistics
  • control sequences
  • reports
  • remote access
  • hosting SCADA in a cloud

In addition, if necessary, we can provide integration of SCADA with third-party platforms, for example, export to external databases or to the cloud, visualization and analysis of accumulated data.
