Electricity from Photovoltaics is getting more and more subsidy free. Large scale solar parks are getting more and more economical feasible investments. On these large plants with several 100MW capacity each 0.1% additional production is a key factor of the success of the operation. At this REN Talk, Gerhard Mütter will talk about actual trends in O&M of large PV  plants. Special details will be presented on Advanced Data Analytics, especially the use of methodologies from Artificial Intelligence in error detection and production forecast.
The presentation will be completed with impressions and results of more than 2.5 GWp already analyzed and most of them optimized by Gerhard´s team.

Gerhard Mütter is Technical Director of Alternative Energy Solutions GmbH (AES), where he leads, in the function of Owner Representative Advisory (ORA), supervision of O&M for PV-Parks. Together with the international team of experts at AES, Gerhard developed PEAK, the AES Performance Efficiency Acceleration Key technology, a leading-edge data analysis service using special algorithms including machine learning for exploring big data. This software toolset allows supervision of multi-MW PV-parks based on perceptions of deep analysis of large datasets taken from monitoring systems.
Gerhard has worked in the renewable energy industry in product management, product development and PV for Austria’s largest solar-companies for more than 10 years. He has been technical head of large PV parks since 2011. Together with his team, he has analysed more than 2 GW of large PV plants across Europe and India, is Technical Director of Rising Alternative Energy Pvt Ltd, New Delhi, India, member of the Scientific Committee of EU-PVSEC and lecturer for Photovoltaics at TU Wien.
