CPL CONCORDIA’s dedicated services for remote monitoring of hydroelectric power plants are based on software products installed at CPL’s data centre and are available round-the-clock via the Web interface. Customers need not install any dedicated software products or carry out maintenance or update the necessary servers and database continuously.
CPL guarantees the availability and operation of the Web platform, so it can monitor and manage the operating state of its plants completely independently. The web platform can manage different types of peripherals: always connected, i.e. with real-time data updates, or with periodic data transmission (as is the case with battery-powered devices), and different communication channels, such as GPRS, UMTS, LTE, ADSL, LAN, and more.
The platform supports management of different types of meters and sensors, water meters, mechanical or ultrasound level sensors, flow switches, and other types of devices so as to compare the quantities measured by the different meters and sensors.
Thanks to the ability to handle different communication protocols, regardless of whether standard or proprietary, a single Web platform can manage several peripheral devices, also of different brands, which would otherwise need as many dedicated software products. It is also possible to support centralised monitoring of several plants using a single system.
CPL’s services for customers who wish to monitor power plants remotely include:
