Published: May 1, 2009

By Konstantin Konrad, Project Manager and Senior Scientist, Fraunhofer IPA; Matthias Meier, Project Manager and Researcher, Fraunhofer IPA

The European PV committee of EPIA/SEMI released the new PVECI standard that describes a unified IT interface for PV equipment in March 2009. If used properly, it provides the PV industry with a powerful tool for reduction of IT-related issues – especially between the factory planning and the ramp-up phase – and establishes the basis for deploying advanced factory management and control software systems. The first part of this article describes the standard in detail while the second part focuses on the anticipated benefits regarding IT integration and outlines further possibilities of a pervasive Production-IT landscape.
