SCADA Upgrading: Enabling a Smarter Grid toward Low Carbon Energy System
Technology advancement drives the price of solar panel reduced significantly, followed by smart inverters price, and battery price. The result of recent IPP tender in some countries, electricity price from solar farm is lower than, or at least at par with, the Coal-fired Power Plant.

“SCADA Upgrading: Enabling a Smarter Grid Toward Low Carbon Energy System”
Thursday, 29 April 2021, 2pm-4pm (Jakarta time)
Government of Indonesia (GoI) is committed to Paris Agreement, to achieve energy mix in electricity 23% from Renewable Energy on 2025. To achieve this target, several GW solar farm and wind farm could be expected to connect to the system. Two wind farms with the total 140 MW and 20 MWp solar farm already connected to Sulawesi grid. PLN already tendered (Floating) Solar farm IPP 145 MW in Jawa and 50 MW in Bali. PLN plans to ten der several solar farms for Sumatera and Kalimantan.
PLN succeeded to solve the problems of interconnecting wind farms and solar farm in Sulawesi, that in early days. This creates confidence that PLN grid could host significant capacity of Variable Renewable energy. However, new ways of system operations should be improved, and the SCADA EMS (Energy Management System) should be equiped with new features, among others: weather forecast for predicting Solar energy and Wind energy.
