Market Overview

India was the first country in the world to set up a separate ministry to focus on renewable and new alternate sources of energy. In order to fulfill the country's ever-growing energy requirements, the Ministry of New and Renewable Energy is planning to grow renewable energy capacities in the country to 175 GW by the year 2022, including 100 GW from solar power, 60 GW from wind power, 10 GW from bio power and 5 GW from small hydro power. This would make India one of the leading green energy producers in the world, surpassing numerous developed countries.

Real-time load generation balance across geographically distributed plants is key for gaining operational efficiencies, thereby minimizing the energy cost. Accurate forecasting of the power output along with preventive and predictive maintenance is required to ensure security, reliability, flexibility and stability of the grid. The inherent remoteness of renewable power plants enhances the need for high communication network availability for seamless data flow from all parts of the power network for control of grid parameters and centralized decision support. This is more acute in India due to lower spread of robust fiber optic infrastructure in remote areas.

The VSAT Advantage

The VSAT solution which is based on Satellite communication, is ideally suited for real-time transmission of data from multiple remote locations including remote power generation sites, substations and control centers for central processing. Additionally, a smart renewable energy network needs a network solution that facilitates large-scale integration into the grid. VSATs offer a much easier option for doing this from the perspective of deployment time, reliability, service consistency in remote locations as well as flexibility and cost-effective scalability as compared to the terrestrial networks.

A robust VSAT communication network facilitates operations optimization and real-time view of any irregularities, minimizing the inherent variability and unpredictability of renewable energy. This also helps in minimizing the power output risk due to the availability of real-time power statistics for visibility to the government and utility companies. Power losses due to a downtime on a peak power generation day can be done away with by assessing real-time sensor data.

An efficient energy network can be achieved only by a confluence of a healthy power network and robust communication network.
