Smart energy systems
Developers today must solve complex energy design challenges. Microprocessor-based photovoltaic system controllers offer significant advantages over analog systems including: keeping load voltages at predetermined levels; avoiding power loss; and allowing for smaller size, cooler operation, and economical design. Customizations can be handled in software rather than hardware, and expansion capabilities provide for the ability to control more complex power systems anticipated in the future. With Ethernet and Wi-Fi functionality of PHYTEC System on Modules (SOMs), energy suppliers and equipment providers can offer remote data evaluation services for unlimited monitoring of inverters worldwide.
Other energy applications that leverage PHYTEC SOMs include power distribution and generation systems, smart grids and metering, HVDC transmission control, and ultra-low power ARM-based server technologies.
