PES Day ''21 Panel Session: The importance of Solar Resource Assessment and Monitoring in PV Power Plant Performance (Slides)
IEEE Members: $10.00
Non-members: $20.00Pages/Slides: 58
This slide presentation will provide an overview of the importance of Solar Resource Assessment and Monitoring in the feasibility study and in the performance of Solar PV projects, along with a case study of a Solar Radiation Resource Assessment (SRRA) station in India. Simulation models and meteorological forecasting resources for specific PV plants are the well proven technologies which are currently in use. In this context, data collection and monitoring represent a valuable opportunity to improve PV plant performance and yield forecasting. The improvements in communication procedures between devices would contribute to improving daily and intraday forecasting, calculation of performance expectations, and the exchange with the energy grid. Solar Resource Monitoring is also important for monitoring the performance of Microgrids in remote areas which can help the unprivileged and vulnerable communities. The traditional and advanced data monitoring techniques like IoT, Big Data Analytics etc. are also discussed in this presentation.
