Solar asset managers are dealing with a number of variables, among them soiling, shading, weather conditions and the degradation of equipment.

And while supervisory control and data acquisition or SCADA systems support the decision-making process, they can’t conduct the kind of advanced analytics asset managers need to significantly improve a plant’s performance.

Sharat Singh is Founder and CEO of Quadrical AI, a software solution that leverages artificial intelligence to help asset managers improve solar generation. 

Sharat has an extensive background in building large enterprise solutions for eCommerce and served as Head of Engineering for Adobe’s Digital Marketing Cloud prior to Quadrical.

On this episode of Clean Power Hour, Sharat joins Tim to share the Quadrical origin story and explain why his team decided to focus on building AI for the solar industry.

Sharat walks us through the five key components of the Quadrical solution, describing how its software creates a digital twin of a solar plant and uses that data to prioritize tickets for solar asset managers.

Listen in for Sharat’s insight on applying digital twin technology to battery storage and learn how Quadrical works with the SCADA monitoring systems you already use to perform advanced analytics across your solar portfolio.
