The typical scope of work in the plant performance assessment includes site visits,validation of as built drawings, energy losses assessment and creation of PVSYST model for the actual parameters of the plant to depict the losses in plant at each stage.
The energy losses in the plant are compared with the measured losses in the plant. This will help in assessing the actual energy yield from your solar plant with reference to the original planned energy yield in the plant. This analysis takes in to consideration of the weather parameters and applies a suitable weather correction factors in the actual plant performance. Once the energy losses at each stage are duly assessed, a root cause analysis of the energy losses is carried out to derive appropriate corrective actions to enhance the plant performance.
Our step by step approach helps in quantifying the contribution of losses due to various factors such as soiling losses, losses due to module operating temperature, gain in the plant performance due to tracker systems, losses due to hotspots, losses due to shading, losses due to inverter operating conditions, losses due to grid tripping, etc.
Firstgreen has conducted the plant performance assessment of various solar plants which have been experiencing lower than the expected performance, and helped the plant owners to improve the performance through our root cause analysis approach. We have also offered our services for remote monitoring of the plant data and suggest proactive diagnostic measures to resolve the plant performance and equipment problems.
Our team of solar plant performance audit works in coordination with the O&M team at the site and enable them to better manage the plant performance and realize the maximum yield through their solar investments.
For the first time first green consulting announces a free webinar on Solar Plant Performance Assessment for the targeted audience such as O&M engineers, designers, students, venture and equity investors and solar installers.
It is a must attend webinar for any of the stake holders working in solar PV field and who wishes to grasp intricacies about plant performance and optimization.
Case studies will be discussed during this webinar and we assure to make our learning reach to you through this platform. So join us on 29 April, 2014 at 3P.M. (IST).
