GOCPV Brochure

GOCPV is a management and information system that permits the centralisation of all the information related to Concentration Photovoltaic (CPV) plants in a single system, for its study and analysis.

The vast majority of CPV suppliers provide a monitoring software together with their CPV plants; but those systems are not specifically designed for carrying out detailed studies of plant performance. With GOCPV it is possible to carry out studies and comparisons of all the information received from the plant components (energy-meters, inverters, trackers, weather stations, etc.), independently from the plant technology and its location.

Consequently, as all the information is integrated in the same system user can focus on the data analysis starting from the reports generated by the application. Those reports will include the main aspects of the plant as well as the main sector business indicators (KPI indicators). In addition, GOCPV will be a very useful tool for your R&D department because it allows a quick and easy access to any variable of your system whenever you want.

How does GOCPV come up?

GOCPV comes up as a result of the ISFOC long–term experience in CPV technologies, obtained trough the analysis of plenty of CPV systems. It comes up as a solution for a crucial issue: capture, compilation, analysis, comparison, and emission of conclusions supported by data from different CPV systems (different suppliers, different locations…), coming from several and non-homogeneous origins.

This software application has been 100% developed by ISFOC; therefore, it is mainly orientated to the study and evaluation of the CPV plants performance from the point of view of a researcher. GOCPV is continuously updated to cover the new emergent technologies; this is possible thanks to the R&D department effort and the feedback received from the Operation and Maintenance team of our CPV plants.

GOCPV Modules

GOCPV not only centralises the production data of the plants in a single system, it has been structured in a modular way, so users can have an absolute  knowledge of their installations as well as maintaining the plants under control through the following modules:

- User Management:The User Management Module allows the creation of several users, specifying in each case data access and permissions on each application screen. Therefore, with GOCPV you can create, apart from your business user accounts, as many guest user accounts as you need.

- Device Inventory: With this module you can manage and register the inventory of all of your installations. All the management, information and functional system of the application is supported by this Inventory; so as a result, data and reports will be parameterized in accordance to this.
 
- Production, weather, etc. reports: GOCPV is prepared with a varied set of reports that allow users to have an absolute knowledge of the status of their plants, covering the energy production or even the weather conditions of the site.
 
- Data Exporting:Through this module, your R&D team can easily export whatever registered data, in the period and frequency required. GOCPV will assist you by indicating the available information on the system so you can select the required data.
 
- Integrity and Quality:GOCPV checks the integrity and quality of the data uploaded to the system through this module.
 
- Plant Maintenance: GOCPV includes an Incidence Management Module. This module allows the management of the plant incidences as well as your available resources for their resolution. From those data, this module also generates reports including the main sector business indicators which will allow you to carry out R&D Studies with the Operation and Maintenance of CPV plants.
 
- Alerts and Alarms Module: As a complement of the previous module, the system can be parameterized to notify via e-mail or SMS any event occurred at your installation; therefore, you will be permanently informed of the status of your CPV plants.
