KUCHING, June 7: Centexs Digital And Green Academy (Centexs) has developed a smart photovoltaic (PV) installation which is able to to self-learn.

Its chairman Tan Sri Datuk Amar Mohamad Morshidi Abdul Ghani revealed that the system’s ‘smart brain’ could optimise tracker optimisation algorithms for maximum power point tracking (MPPT) to fully realise the potential of each PV string in a PV plant to improve system efficiency.

He added that a full optimiser system generates an average of 10-13 per cent more energy per day.

“The smart PV (installation) is also equipped with the Huawei Energy Storage System (ESS) solution, to maintain optimal temperatures for stable power output and offers four-layer safety protection enabling quick-break protection, thus ensuring stability and safety,” he said.

Mohamad Morshidi revealed this to reporters before the launching of Green Energy Symposium And Exhibition Sarawak 2023 (GESS) & Solar Testbed by Sarawak Premier Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg at Centexs Kuching today.

The theme for this year’s symposium is ‘Accelerate to Carbon Future’.

Mohamad Morshidi said that apart from smart solar PV, Centexs is also looking into new advancements in wind turbines suitable for and adapted to local climate as an alternative green energy resource.

“In understanding the green energy industry and related training, it is important to equip our local talents with relevant hands-on training to enable seamless integration into the industry workforce,” he said.

Also present at the launch were Deputy Premier Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian, Minister of Utility and Telecommunication Datuk Julaihi Narawi, Deputy Minister of Natural Resources and Urban Development Datuk Len Talif Salleh, Deputy Minister of Talent Development Datuk Francis Harden, Deputy Minister for Utility and Telecommunication Datuk Liwan Lagang, and Centex Chief Executive Officer Syeed Mohd Hussein. — DayakDaily
