Emerson (EMR) Selected as Automation Partner by Lodestone
Emerson Electric Co. EMR has been selected by solar energy company Lodestone Energy to provide advanced automation solutions to New Zealand's first large-scale solar photovoltaic power project.
Solar PV transforms sunlight directly into electricity and is one of the fastest-growing renewable energy sources. It needs accurate orchestration and multiple interfaces to third-party systems, which include high-voltage switchboards, inverters, site security systems, weather stations and grid authority remote terminal units to produce and supply solar PV power. EMR’s leading automation architecture data will merge its control software and technologies with enterprise data solutions to build a control solution to boost output and profitability as well as to manage grid stability.
Per the deal, Lodestone will leverage EMR’s Ovation distributed control system and OCR3000 controller to provide comprehensive control to curtail variability and intermittency impact in solar PV power generation. Using this technology, operators will be able to quickly respond to grid frequency events. It will also help them in monitoring solar PV operations from the control room or mobile devices, measuring, monitoring and reporting key performance indicators to maximize the visibility of plant operations.
