Renewable Energy Monitoring System
Our team at SAPHI developed a sophisticated custom renewable energy monitoring system leveraging edge computing to to monitor, record and display real-time weather and renewable energy performance data
Who Was Our Client?
Diffuse Energy is an Australian small wind turbine manufacturer and supplier. Their wind energy system complements solar PV and batteries for microgrids in the telecommunication and critical comms markets.
What Was The Problem?
Diffuse needed a system to collect data from their custom-built turbine controller to monitor and track the performance of their assets remotely. Additionally, they needed a solution to integrate an advanced weather station system to monitor efficiencies based on real-time weather data.
What Was The Solution?
SAPHI designed and developed an end-to-end custom renewable energy monitoring system. From sourcing, customising and programming of hardware in remote locations through to the development of cloud architecture that acts as the medium between the controller and the intuitive custom web app our team developed to enable the Diffuse team to monitor and track their assets remotely.
What Were The Outcomes?
- Days of saved time through the elimination of manual health checks of assets
- Better decision making based on accurate real-time data
- Reduction in labour costs
- Reduction in downtime of assets
What Skills Did SAPHI Use To Implement The Solution?
SAPHI leveraged its expertise in a broad range of areas to construct the system, including:
- PCB Design
- RS-485 communication protocols
- CAT-M1 wireless communication protocols
- Google Cloud Platform (Firebase, BigQuery)
What Support Did SAPHI Offer After Completion?
For all projects, SAPHI provides 12 months of free ongoing support and maintenance for all in-scope items to reduce the risk for clients and ensure a smooth transition of asset ownership.
Additionally, Diffuse has continued to engage SAPHI in the development of additional renewable energy monitoring systems for their latest phase of asset deployment.
