Centralizing Wind Farm Monitoring in
the Face of Development Challenges In India.
Splunk .conf18: Centralizing Wind Farm Monitoring across India
Standards and best practices laid out for the latest technology can sometimes be blind to the limitations of developing regions. Rural India, with 13% internet penetration, remains largely inaccessible to the rest of the world. Yet, this is where many renewable energy projects thrive, accounting for 30% of the country’s installed power capacity. In the face of challenges like no fixed line connectivity, unstable wireless data, cyclonic storms & floods, pan-India wind farms in the remotest of areas were monitored by a centralized operations site using Splunk.
Let’s take a look at how the standard Splunk architecture had to be reworked and made viable for a wind turbine manufacturing company that bagged 38% of India’s additional wind capacity. Here, low tech is the new high tech.
This session was conducted at Splunk .conf18 by SmartCirqls' technical consultants Nileena Suresh and Prajakta Gurav, in front of a live audience.
