SMA with Power Plant Manager meets the business needs

20 March 2020

With the new Power Plant Manager, SMA makes sure that decentralized energy systems in the megawatt range meet all requirements for networking, digitalization and data security and gets them ready for new business models in the energy markets. Based on the SMA energy management platform ennexOS, the Power Plant Manager not only monitors, optimizes, controls and visualizes the grid-conform energy generation, it also enables the integration of large battery-storage systems and other decentralized energy generators into the overall system. 

The SMA Power Plant Manager visualizes all current and historical energy flows of the system at the power plant and device level. The system-wide access to operating data and parameters saves time during commissioning and maintenance. Regular software updates provide new functions and ensure the safe operation of the plant.

The new SMA Power Plant Manager controls energy generation, storage and consumption with regard to the point of interconnection. As a result, power plant operators ensure that the requirements by the grid operators and energy market regulators for the remote controllability, grid feed-in and load control, as well as grid stabilization through voltage and frequency control, are always met.
