ABB has announced the launch of new grid interconnection technology applications for wind farms.

The company says its Ventyx Energy Portfolio Management solution accurately forecasts wind patterns and collects data. ABB's new Symphony Plus for Wind, meanwhile, is a SCADA offering designed for monitoring and controlling wind plant fleets.

According to ABB, Symphony Plus is an automation system that is already implemented within a large number of thermal and hydro power plants, but it is now available to meet the growing demand in the wind industry. In addition to real-time monitoring and control, ABB says this solution includes features such as condition monitoring of assets and optimal dispatching of plants using a scalable SCADA solution; a single “pane of glass” for operations and maintenance of turbines and substation equipment; and central control room capabilities. This solution is supported both globally and locally for software updates and added functionality, the company adds.
