Part 1 – The Rule Tool
The Rule Tool provides comprehensive on-demand reports to evaluate system health, from network communications & configurations to data & performance validation. The Rule Tool delivers complete system testing during commissioning and may be used to troubleshoot data issues over the lifetime of the system.
Part 2 – Production Hierarchy View
Production Hierarchy Views allow users to quickly and easily drill down through site architecture to locate underperforming strings and inverters. This feature shows real-time production values behind the meter, with the ability to scale between zone, string, and device level data.
Part 3 – Advanced Modeling Features
AlsoEnergy is an industry leader for advanced PV performance modeling, enabling accurate actual vs. expected calculations. AlsoEnergy modeling accounts for factors such as seasonal irradiance variations, panel tilt and azimuth, expected performance for panels and inverters, and even data from tracker systems.
Part 4 – CMMS Application Integrations
The CMMS Module in PowerTrack delivers seamless integration with any leading CMMS software, giving a comprehensive view of all job ticket data and the ability to create job tickets directly from alarms. The mobile application allows field technicians to coordinate work with staff in the office or operations center.
Part 5 – Soiling Loss Algorithm
The Soiling Loss Algorithm in PowerTrack is an effective way to detect and quantify production losses due to soiling without the need for specialized sensors on site. The Soiling Loss Algorithm utilizes pattern matching to identify gradual losses over time due to soiling.
Part 6 – Custom Excel Report Templates
PowerTrack offers users a wide range of report templates for common reporting needs. But every client will need to build custom reports from time to time; PowerTrack offers several options to build your own custom reports, including Custom Excel Report Templates to automate reports based on your spreadsheets.
Part 7 – Remote Capacity Tests
Remote Capacity Tests follow the Active Standard ASTM E2848 protocol. PowerTrack performs data filtering, normalization and multiple regressions to give an accurate, unbiased assessment of system generation capacity.
Part 8 – Inverter Variance Report
Inverter Variance Reports compare the output among all individual inverters with the total output of the group. This report is ideal to identify inverters that may be experiencing diminishing productivity over time.
Part 9 – Site Alert Timeline
PowerTrack provides several features allowing users to analyze historical alarm data in order to provide context for current issues and to identify recurring problems. This includes ability to sort and filer alarms in any time range, and the Site Alert Timeline, which provides a helpful visualization showing timing and duration for all alerts in one chart.
Part 10 – Financial Tools
PowerTrack enables a range of financial analytics for users, including financial displays, reports, and invoices. These features support all major global currencies, and multiple rates to reflect higher energy values during peak usage hours. See expected and actual revenue side-by-side with production data, and track revenue loss estimates associated with downtime and performance impact events.
