Wind Power Plant Multilevel Wind SCADA Center

Wind farm management with SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture

Siemens has launched a new two-part solution to address the needs of wind turbine manufacturers as well as independent service providers: a turbine SCADA with long-term database and a central Multilevel Wind SCADA Center. Both systems come with a standardized operating concept and integrated communication.

Use of SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture provides a foundation to open up scope for customers to upgrade the Multilevel Wind SCADA Center for their own needs. Qualified Siemens solution partners are available worldwide if help is needed to make adjustments and implement upgrades.

Your benefit

The integrated architecture and communication facility and the use of long-term databases on the turbine or farm level mean that service engineers can use a central application in the control desk to access the complete range of up-to-the-minute data from all connected turbines to carry out any kind of comparative analysis.

This eliminates the need to dial into each turbine separately and change between different applications, while still allowing service teams unrestricted access to any online data, alarms and histories without compromising optimum troubleshooting and analysis. An on demand access to any real-time and historical data allows unrestricted data access to even low bandwidth connections and transmits only the data that the user wants to analyze.

The open nature of SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture along with its long-term compatibility provides the optimum customer investment security over the long term. There are currently a large number of running applications based on SIMATIC WinCC Open Architecture that can still be upgraded and maintained even after almost 15 years.
