About the webinar
While we have achieved a total installed capacity of 2.6 GW of solar power projects in India, the recent report from MNRE highlights that many solar plants are still underperforming.As solar plants become older, the performance continuously degrades and O&M of the solar plant becomes critical to maintain optimum generation. Solar projects require minimal maintenance as compared to any conventional power project. However a continuous O&M program is essential to fetch maximum yield from your solar plant. Many plant owners treat solar plant O&M as simply cleaning of PV modules, however various other issues are often neglected. Some of these issues include data monitoring, string management, safety aspects, grid management, preventive maintenance, proactive maintenance, etc.
Firstgreen Consulting and First Solar have jointly organized a webinar on “O&M of Solar Projects”.
Come and learn with top notch professionals of the solar industry on 30th October 2014, 1-2 PM IST.
Topics to be covered
The webinar will highlight some of the important aspects of O&M based on the lessons learned through the existing installations.The topics covered during the webinar are as follows:
- Preventive Maintenance (PM) in solar projects
- Routine inspection and servicing of critical equipments.
- Options to reduce the breakdown in your Solar Plant.
- Corrective maintenance of solar Projects.
- Condition based monitoring of PV module and inverters.
- String monitoring in solar Projects.
- Cleaning strategy for PV panels.
- Plant performance monitoring system.
Firstgreen is a leading consulting firm for providing the project management consulting and owner’s engineering services with involvement in over 300 MW of plants in development Construction operation or operation in India. Our clients call on us to assess the performance of their solar Power Projects whether their plants are performing to the best of their expected performance and seek our expertise in identifying the key factors which are affecting the performance of their solar project.
Firstgreen has conducted the performance audit of various plants operational in India and have resolved the issues which are root cause of the plant under performance. Firstgreen uses a variety of tools,measuring instruments, and analysis methods to benchmark the performance of plant right at the string level. Our bench marking approach highlights the under performing strings and quantify the difference in terms of best performing string as well as under performing strings. We validate the data collected through the SCADA systems with our own measuring tools and pinpoint the critical areas.
