CCHRC Research and Testing Facility (RTF)

Solar Power System Near-Real-Time Monitoring

The following graphs show some of the initial data being collected from the solar power system during the early stages of construction. Data will be collected by both Campbell Scientific Inc. and Siemens data acquisition and control equipment. Campbell Scientific applications will focus on the external conditions and operations of the solar tracker arrays. Siemens applications will focus power monitoring and controls. More information will be reported as construction progresses.
