Technology Workshop: Leveraging Digital Twin Technology: A Streamlined Approach to PV Plant Lifecycle Data Exchange
This workshop will explore existing challenges arising from vast diversity, lack of standardisation, and non-transferability of PV asset digital twins. PV plants currently need to be re-modelled several times throughout the lifecycle in different software which reduces efficiency, increases errors, and limits information-sharing.
To address these issues, there is a need for a standardised digital twin designed to support all engineering processes during the lifecycle of the solar asset. PVcase, in collaboration with the TRUST PV consortium, has developed a concept for a digital twin that can act as a standard information model that connects asset data and processes, from initial design to decommissioning, in a virtual space.
Building on the Trust-PV project deliverables, the workshop aims to gather developers, asset owners, and EPC and O&M engineers to discuss challenges related to solar project commissioning, asset onboarding onto operations and maintenance platforms, and fault detection and resolution, among other topics. Participants will then be invited to explore how interoperable digital twins of PV assets could help save costs, optimise engineering, and improve fault detection throughout the PV system lifecycle.
