     SolarEye    Platform  revolutionizes  monitoring        and
      management of PV installations, providing a decision
      support system, leveraging advanced artificial intelligence
      models for:
          Fastest fault isolation
          Minimizing fault recovery response time
          Accurate estimation of expected power and energy loss
          Reduction of maintenance costs
          Yield optimization

   SolarEye Platform moves beyond presentation of data to provide
       insights of PV installations through real-time energy analytics:
            Energy Estimation: SolarEye Platform is capable of estimating in real-time with high accuracy, each
            inverter's expected production under certain climate conditions.


                Fault Isolation: Several types of faults can be detected automatically in real time with high
                accuracy, without requiring any user-defined thresholds.


                  Quantification of power loss: Energy lost due to failures or other disturbances is calculated. This
                  information could be used for insurance claims.



                Statistics for plant components and failures.




            Performance metrics coupled with rich diagnostic tools reveal plant status condition.
