Wei Yinggang of Jingke Technology: New ideas for operation and maintenance of photovoltaic power stations in the digital trend

On November 16, 2022, the “OFweek 2022 (the 13th) Solar Photovoltaic Industry Conference and the Annual Selection and Award Ceremony of the Photovoltaic Industry”, hosted by China’s high-tech industry portal OFweek, was successfully held in Shenzhen.
The meeting was full of guests and the atmosphere was warm. Mr. Wei Yinggang, director of the Central Control Center of Jingke Technology, delivered a keynote speech titled “New Ideas for the Operation and Maintenance of Photovoltaic Power Plants in the Digital Trend”.

In terms of the current situation of the industry, Wei Yinggang said that the development of green energy and low-carbon economy has been widely recognized by all countries in the world for a long time. New energy will become the world’s leading energy in the future. Photovoltaic power generation has entered the era of comprehensive parity, and the dual-carbon goal has made photovoltaic become the main force of new energy.
China further put forward the goal of “30 carbon to 60 carbon neutral”. During the “Fourteenth Five-Year Plan” period, China’s photovoltaic market will usher in the peak of market-oriented construction. It is estimated that the annual average installed capacity of PV will be 70-90GW. By the end of 2021, the installed capacity of PV has reached 306GW.
The photovoltaic industry will be more deeply integrated with the new generation of information technologies such as the Internet, blockchain and artificial intelligence, and more enterprises will enjoy the benefits of intelligent operation and maintenance. Jingke Technology expects that 90% of the world’s photovoltaic power stations will be fully digitalized by 2025. In the future, the digitalization and intellectualization of the whole process will make the asset management, production management and operation and maintenance of the entire power station simple and efficient, and enhance the early warning ability and power generation ability of the power station operation and maintenance.
Of course, photovoltaic power stations also have a large number of existing power stations and a large management scale (the management scale above GW level has become the norm, and 1GW power stations will generate 25GB of data per day based on an average of 20MW); Scattered distribution (power stations are distributed in different provinces and cities, far apart); Multiple types (including surface power stations, distributed power stations, household power stations, etc.); Talent gap; The problem of system islands and other difficult points.
To this end, Jingke Technology has put forward the digital construction of photovoltaic power stations since 2014. It has gone through the stages of germination, growth and expansion. At present, the platform management scale exceeds 6GW. The smart management platform for operation and maintenance of Jingke Technology includes one platform and four centers, which effectively solves the problems of data acquisition and access, intelligent monitoring and data analysis of photovoltaic power stations. At the same time, Jingke Technology has also made outstanding achievements in Jingke Operation and Maintenance Control Center, UAV detection technology application, intelligent equipment deployment and other aspects.
Today, Jingke Technology has provided energy management and energy services for more than 1000 home appliance station owners, industrial and commercial customers and park customers. The reserve capacity of domestic projects exceeds 15GW; The capacity of overseas power stations is 3.4GW, and overseas reserve projects are nearly 10GW.
