Fraunhofer ISE spin-off, Mondas has launched a novel analytical software system for a broad range of applications, including solar power plant O&M. 
The ‘mondas’ System Platform is a web-based tool designed for the collection and analysis of data enabling the monitoring of a large number of similar energy and production plants and to manage building commissioning in a time and cost-effective way.

Problem

Many energy plants are believed to operating far below optimal performance but the challenge is raising performance without data-driven technology, yet this requires the ability to handle a large number of systems.

Solution

Mondas records all relevant system data such as operating temperatures, running times or rpm and analyzes them in real time. In the critical operating state, the system sends the error analysis to the customer. As a result, the number of breakdowns decreases significantly, maintenance trips can be saved or carried out more efficiently. This significantly improves the energy yield and thus the profitability of combined heat and power plants or solar parks, according to the company.

Applications

Typical plant applications are combined heat and power plants and photovoltaic systems, but also compressed air stations or chillers.

Platform

The mondas platform is a highly performant Web tool designed for the collection and analysis of data enabling you to monitor a large number of similar energy and production plants and to manage building commissioning in a time and cost-effective way. mondas understands different field buses and protocols and is universally usable. The underlying HDF5 data format processes large data volumes and is by several orders of magnitude faster than for example SQL data bases.

Availability

February 2019, onwards.
