Wipro has developed a hardware product, the first of its kind in the world, which can improve power generation in a solar plant by as much as 20 per cent. Developed by a team of 40, the product picks up critical data from panels and inverters in a solar plant and dynamically models it to improve generation. Wipro is guaranteeing between an 8-20 per cent generation increase in a plant.
The product has both hardware and software components. It will be sold on a licensing model in six months’ time. Right now, it is undergoing trials in India. The firm will partner developers, systems integrators and engineering procurement and contracting players to take the product to the global market.
