Design of Photovoltaic Generation Monitoring System Based on WinCC


Article Preview

A photovoltaic generation monitoring system based on WinCC is introduced in this paper. The photovoltaic generation monitoring system is composed of programming intelligent models, PLC, industrial control computer. The human machine interface (HMI) of upper computer is developed by WinCC. With a friendly HMI, the system is convenience for operation and maintenance. System reliability and good control effects are shown in real time operation.
