SEMS-2000/3000 Solar Thermal Energy Monitoring System CSP

SEMS-2000/3000 is a Solar Energy Measurement System, a turnkey integral solution for measuring the sun power, that is, the solar energy resource, as well as for the remote real-time monitoring and efficiency analysis of thermal or photovoltaic solar power plants.


Our SEMS-2000 Solar Energy Measurement System is the most advanced technical and cost efficient solution for solar energy resource assessment available in the world market today. SEMS-2000 is also the necessary tool for the measurement of Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI), Global Horizontal Irradiance (GHI) and Diffuse Horizontal Irradiance (DHI) to be used as a precise incoming energy reference during the operation of Concentrating Solar Power Plants (CSP), Concentrated Photovoltaic Solar Power Plants (CPV) and Photovoltaic Solar Power Plants (PV).

The SEMS-2000/3000 has been designed around the remote data acquisition and transmission unit METEODATA series, which works as a datalogger and, at the same time, as a very precise Solar Tracker Controller.

SEMS-2000/3000 system offers direct connection with SCADAs or remote monitoring for retrieving data or reporting site conditions via GPRS/CDMA cellular network, radio link, satellite, Ethernet, etc., as well as via INTERNET by means of the WEBTRANS Ubiquitas internet platform (Web posting).


Once the solar plant is functional, other three fundamental issues are covered by the SEMS-2000/3000 System:

  • Real-time monitoring of all the main or critical plant parameters. This will provide the possibility of a quick identification of failed components or abnormal operation conditions of the plant.
  • An efficient remote alarm management procedure by means of urgent transmission of SMS alert messages to cellular phones and e-mails to central computers, in order to minimize the troubleshooting efforts and to prevent damages in key plant components.
  • On-line and Off-line analysis of the plant efficiency, in order to know the overall performance of the thermal or photovoltaic installation.

These three issues will allow enlarging the operative life of the plant and, at the same time, to ensure the maximum investment profitability.
