PADCON GmbH specialises in monitoring systems, plant communication and power plant controls for PV power plants. The extensive product portfolio includes solutions for solar power plants worldwide.
The PADCON product world offers perfectly coordinated components and solutions for every project. Numerous large projects and a globally monitored plant output of more than 3 GW reflect the trust of PADCON’s customers.
The cornerstone for the rapid and sustained growth of the company was laid with its foundation in 2007 as a manufacturer and developer of inverter stations. As early as 2008, PADCON put into operation the world's first inverter with an output of 2.5 MW. Based upon this know-how, PADCON developed products around the inverter.
Through this and other milestones PADCON became a partner to many well-known EPCs, and by 2009 had realised projects with a total of 200 MW. In parallel, PADCON recognised the significant need to monitor PV systems with regard to their function and profitability, and in 2008 introduced Central Monitoring as a cost-effective variant for single string monitoring.
Leading the way in this field, by 2011 PADCON had already expanded the plant monitoring system by introducing the currently legally binding regulations, such as reactive power control and reduced power.
To date mainly active in Europe, PADCON has been further expanding its internationalisation activities since 2012, thus continuing its rigorous course of expansion. The official certificates from UL (Underwriters Laboratories) and TÜV underline the high quality standard of the PADCON product range and enable country-specific requirements to be fully met.
With more than 3 GW of monitored plant output in 21 countries worldwide, PADCON consequently ranks among the largest and most experienced suppliers of SCADA systems for PV power plants.
In addition, since 2013 PADCON has been offering intelligent solutions with the Float Controller family in order to stop PID on PV systems simply and effectively, and to recover the affected modules successfully.
Accordingly PADCON stands worldwide for "Made in Germany", innovative solutions, and permanent, technological progress.
