Solar Power Plant Evaluation – What have been the degradation rates in the panels?

Solar panels form the core of a solar power plant.

Hence, the performance degradation rates of the installed panels are good, probably the best indicators of its quality. Your financial returns pretty much depend on the output from the panels. You might want to carefully evaluate the actual degradation rates observed in the panels and compare […]

Solar Power Plant Evaluation – Presence of local service support from component manufacturers

Now, why is this a key aspect while evaluating panels or inverters of an existing solar power plant?

Let’s look at inverters to illustrate the significance of local service support.

Although designed with a life expectancy in excess of 20 years, inverters, like all other industrial products with electronic components, are susceptible to failure over time. The […]

Solar Power Plant Evaluation – How good are the inverters?

What is the need for rigorous evaluation of the inverter in a power plant?

An inverter is the most complicated component of the PV plant and is the heart of the system.

It converts DC power output from the panels into AC current that can be fed into the grid or power appliances and directly influences the efficiency […]

Solar Power Plant Evaluation – Evaluation for Performance during High Winds

With zero moving parts, solar photovoltaic (PV) panels are one of the most durable energy generation technologies known to man. With minimal upkeep, your installation can continue operating at peak performance for decades. In fact, many solar installations from the 1970s are still generating clean, free energy for their owners.

So sure, solar PV power plants are highly […]

Solar Power Plant Evaluation – How well have the components been chosen?

While the whole may be much more than the sum of parts, the quality of each part of any system matters too, doesn’t it!

Same is the case for solar power plant components.

While it would be impossible to guide you on evaluation parameters for every component in the system, do check out the necessary parameters for […]

Solar Power Plant Evaluation – What types of monitoring solutions are employed by the power plant?

Before answering this question, let’s discuss what a PV monitoring system is

PV monitoring systems are software-driven devices that track the performance of a solar energy installation. They vary in terms of what they track and how it’s displayed, but most provide real-time and historical data, performance-based alerts, web-based (or cellular) monitoring and some give […]
