Q Without naming names, (unless you want to or are allowed to) tell us about a project that was very challenging and what you did to solve the customer’s problem. A One of my favorite recent projects has an IIoT aspect to it. SCADA Solutions is an SI that manages wind farms. They faced two challenges. The first was that the wind farms are in remote locations and hard to access. To dispatch an operator to start and stop turbines or do troubleshooting was very difficult. By utilizing the “groov” mobile interface from Opto 22, they are now able to do remote monitoring, control and troubleshooting from mobile phones and iPads, often eliminating the need for a “truck roll”. The second challenge they faced was that the price that CAISO (California Independent System Operator) pays generators for electricity varies. When there is too much generation, this “spot price” can actually go negative and the Wind Farm would have to actually pay to generate. With the Opto 22 automation system, SCADA Solutions developed an “IIoT” solution where they are going out to the internet and bringing back the spot price into the control system. Now, they only generate when it makes economic sense to do so. The full video case study of this application can be found at this link.
