To offer our customers maximum flexibility by enabling them to link SCADA systems of different providers we have developed SCADA interface solutions for our wind power plants. This way you do not depend on one particular system but can choose between providers. Depending on the area of application and the functionality, REpower offers interface solutions for wind farms to fit every need:
Approved and powerful: our first interface product combines years of experience with a broad variety of features. Since its creation, this interface has become a communication standard throughout the wind energy market. It is linked to the wind farm via a central interface (REguard ComBox B) and ensures secure data transfer to the customer control center by an encrypted VPN connection. Here, second values, status codes and operating conditions can be retrieved, analyzed and processed.
Ideal for differing systems: B FTPS monitors wind farms of any size via a central interface. Individual components as the power management unit or the wind measurement station can be additionally supervised. This interface provides you with 10-minute averages and analyses status codes and operational data. Alert messages are directly received by the alarm mode that will instantly initiate any necessary measures. To transfer wind farm data to up to four configurable FTPS servers, Interface B FTPS uses the standardized FTPS protocol, encrypted via SSL connection.
An international pioneer: This interface is based on the international standard for wind power plants, IEC 6 1400-25. As one of the first wind turbine manufacturers, REpower has included this standard in its SCADA solutions. From the very beginning, we put all our experience into developing a standard that unites wind farms all across the world. Our aim is to one day achieve smooth worldwide communication among wind power plants and modules.
Interface B IEC 61400-25 comprises all features of the SCADA interface family – and more. Apart from delivering alarm messages, second values, 10-minute averages, status codes and operational data, this interface also enables wind turbine operation (starting, stopping, resetting). In addition, individual wind power plants, the power management unit and the wind measurement station can be accessed, controlled and monitored.
